Face The Music Friday #36

on May 30, 2014

Saturday – Power washed for 3+ hours

Sunday – Put pool up/Took it down/Put up new one

Monday – 30 min elliptical

Tuesday – Chiro appt

Wednesday – 30 min elliptical

Thursday – packing

Friday – work/finish packing/driving


I didn’t do a whole lot this week and I’m alright with that. Between it being end of month at work, plus all the logistics going into getting ready for this weekend, I wasn’t going to go overboard trying to fit in workouts. I did them where I could.

Tomorrow is the big day. If you want to see my course that I’ll be facing, click here. And yes, I’ve been told there is still snow on the mountain (and seen a possible pic of it in the Mudder course preview?). I’m not thrilled about the snow, especially due to the fact that there is rain in the forecast and it’s only gonna be in the low 60s. That temp isn’t bad, at ground level, but I can only imagine what it will feel like when we’ve climbed 3300+ feet in elevation!

I’m as prepared as I can be. I’ve got all my race stuff laid out on the guest bed. Stuff I’ll be wearing, stuff I’ll be carrying in my Camelbak, stuff I’ll need after the race. Everything else is just secondary.




There’s not much else to say. I’m beyond nervous, excited, scared. Some people act like TM is no big deal compared to say, a Spartan Race (which I’ll be doing for the first time next month), but to me – this will be a huge accomplishment when I cross that finish line. I WILL cross it – even if it takes me 6 hours (sorry Tara and Julie).

To make me feel like I am, I picked an easy choice this week – Sara Bareilles’ “Brave”. Wish me luck!
