Getting my run on.

When I was last here to spill my guts I admitted that I skipped my Tuesday night work out.  And I promised to work out on Wednesday and Thursday to make up for it.  I am now here to admit to you that I only did half of what I promised (3/4 maybe?)/.  I did work out on Wednesday evening.  I did 45 minutes on the elliptical.  The awesome thing?  Kris spent 30 minutes on the bike trainer next to me.  It was actually pretty cool to work out together.  We usually do it separately because our paces are so different.  Maybe we can do more of that in the future.

Then last night though instead of working out I went out with my friends.  Eight of us sitting around a table talking.  It doesn’t really get much better, ya know?  I’m lucky to have such a big group of friends.  But it was either wine night with the girls or a basement workout.  I chose my girls.  How about if I strive for a workout on Saturday and Sunday to make up for my slacking off this week?  Then I can get back to Tuesday/Thursday next week.

Here is my official invitation.  I haven’t talked to Kris about this yet but we both want to do some triathlons next year.  One triathlon I’d like to do is the Waconia Triathlon.  Kris has done this one before (in 2004 when I was pregnant with Annika).  It’s a good race in a great town (heh – my hometown) put on by a good group.  Want to do the race with me (us)?  Here is my peer pressure in return.  I got my friends to try duathlon this summer.  Can I talk any of you into trying a sprint triathlon with me next summer?  The race is June 26, 2011 and registration opens in December.  Come on…it will be fun!

Speaking of fun.  Have you been following the happenings at Interbike this week?  I’ve been following it via articles at Slowtwitch and DC Rainmaker.  It looks so fun!  I’d love to try some cyclocross or mountain biking in the desert.  Weird, huh, since I don’t really like riding my road bike very much?  Anyway, there’s been lots of bike p0rn this week which I’m sure has been great for Kris!

    I skipped my run last night for wine night too. And so did Laura. So, you’re not alone :-)

    I skipped my Thursday run too. However, I can’t even remember what I did. :)
    I think I will pass on a triathlon, I am not a swimmer and I haven’t even done a du yet. :)
