So I slept until 10am. (Ah, the life of the part-time employee.) Let me tell you... Mondays goby much faster when you stay in bed later.
I followed that with eating two blueberry toaster strudels, the true breakfast of champions. Seriously, I grew up on those things, and I just can't let them go.
After working my four hour shift, I'm now at home daydreaming about vacations and looking forward to heading out in a bit to the REI to pick up the new watch I ordered. I'm super pumped and hope that it will be every bit as awesome as I think it will be. It's the Tech4O watch that I read a review about on one of your blogs. I'm sorry I can't remember which one of you reviewed it... feel free to say hi if it was you. Right now you can get it on REI's outlet website for $50 and then get it shipped to any REI store (if you're fortunate to have one nearby) for free. Even if you don't have a REI, the sale price is still decent so why not order from them than to order the watch for full price elsewhere?
I'll let you all know how well I like it once I have had time to learn how to use it and get a few runs in with it.
I'm feeling good about my running. I have plans for all my runs this week and will also hit up pilates at least once or twice. I think focusing on my core strength might be the way to go for now. Once I adjust to all of that, I'm going to try to add a bike workout and maybe even a swim workout to really try to round out my training as I continue to work on my base before my marathon training starts.
