Saturday Sampler: Do You Know the Muffin Man?

Oh, do you know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, do you know the muffin man,
That lives on Drury Lane?
Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,
That lives on Drury Lane.
  • Went for a great run this AM. 2.27 Tempo and another 1.82 walk/sprint...can I call that intervals?
  • Krav Maga was great, my elbows apparently are lethal weapons
  • When I got home from my run and self defense class I sent my husband out on his run. While he was gone Duder and I made him blueberry muffins.
  • I got a nap today, oh it was amazing. I slept on the couch and woke up groggy. You know you slept hard when wake up groggy.
  • I am almost finished with my vision board. There is a spot open for my training schedules to get posted. My goal is to finish it by months end. Yes I know it is taking me a while and really I have only spent a total of 1 hour putting it together, I just haven't made more than 15-20 minutes at a time to work on it.
  • Yesterday while I was at the Fish Hatchery I got to see lots of cyclists on the river trail. I was jealous. My TRI club is going for a 2 hour ride tomorrow and I can't make it. I think I would like to ride more if I had such pretty Trails to ride like the ones by the Hatchery.
  • My son says the funniest stuff. While watching dinosaur train we learned about "PREDATORS," for some reason this term trips my son up and when we were playing dinosaurs recently he said, "Ah, the CREDITORS are coming."
  • I eat food at the most inappropriate TV times. I am usually having some sort of high calorie treat when I watch biggest loser and tonight, I am watching CSI and eating Rocky Road. Ice Cream and dead bodies is just kinda wrong. 
Why I Kick A$$: My "Tempo" run felt too easy. I am going to get back on track for a couple weeks and re-test my mile time and adjust my training schedule accordingly. I hear people are supposed to update their speed markers regularly. 

How often do you retest your speed capabilities?

Rocky Road ice cream. I have not had that in twenty years or more. But I used to love it as a kid.

I always seem to be eating pizza when I watch the Biggest Loser and it doesn't seem right to me. I am glad to know that I am not the only one. :)

Coach has me do a field test twice a year. That is like my speed marker.
