Don't blink. Just run.

Where training meets fandom. And everything in between.

Face The Music Friday #41

on July 4, 2014

Saturday – Spartan Race

Sunday – Rest

Monday – Rest

Tuesday – 3 mile run

Wednesday – Yard work

Thursday – Finish At The 50 – 10K (recap this weekend)

Friday – Rest


Pretty mellow week this week. I’ve still got mega bruises from Saturday that I feel with basically every step I take, so Sunday and Monday I just chilled and recovered. I tested out the legs on Tuesday with my scheduled training run and did alright. Wednesday I did a mad dash of yard work in prep for the weekend, but also to beat the forecasted hurricane/downpours. Thursday was my 10K and it was HOT! I’ll put up a recap of that at some point over the weekend. Today, Tara and I are just chilling, enjoying our rainy day off together and probably getting errands done later.

The weather this week has been super hot and muggy, so we finally broke down and put the A/C in the bedroom on July 1. At least I can say we made it to July this year!



In honor of the July 4th holiday, I’m going with the National Anthem for my song this week. I’d like to send a shout out to all troops, past and present, to thank them. And an extra shout out to our special veteran, my brother-in-law, on his birthday today.

  1. That sounds like quite a week – I’m glad to hear you were feeling ok for both races, I think races of any distance can take a lot out of us. Well done!

    We’ve had our AC on since April! Glad you have recovered well from your race adventures!

    I run my AC almost every day. And I keep it set at 74. I would melt without it!! Hope you’re enjoying your holiday weekend.

      We’re pretty much to the melting point now, though we just try to run one in the bedroom. We don’t spend much time in the other rooms enough to warrant running “the beast”.

  4. I actually haven’t used the ac yet, the fans are definitely out though. have a great weekend!

  5. Thursday was Brutal here in MA with humidity-I hope the weather broke a little for you too!!:) looking forward to your recap!

    I may have teared up a bit when the national anthem was sung at my race on Thursday. Ok, I did! Gotta love it’s powerful meaning!

  6. Great week! Hope y’all fare ok with Arthur!

      We did just fine. He went out to sea and left us mostly alone. We got some crazy rain on Friday and the winds picked up over the weekend, but nothing too nuts.
