My wife ran the Covered Bridges Half Marathon in Woodstock on Sunday. She ran about ten minutes faster than I ran on easier terrain a week earlier. It was about the same time she ran less fall on a tougher course, but she was better trained for that one. She was happy with a very steady pace on Sunday.
Sunday was also her birthday, so we had a nice dinner, including some Champagne and older Bordeaux (1989 Pichon Lalande - one of her favorites). After dinner, we tried to watch the hockey playoffs, but I couldn't stay awake. I went to bed and allowed my wife to finish my wine.
Work has been busy again this week, but I've gotten in some workouts so far. Monday night, I lifted. Last night was a short trail run as a warm-up, followed by 9 x 100 meter sprints. The last two were brutally tough.
Today, work is fighting me again, but I think I'm going to pull off a bike ride later today. At least, I hope so. I have a meeting at 3:00, and when that ends, I should be able to get out for a ride.
Not much else going on - planning a couple running races later this year, trying to train more consistently, eat better, get my work done. That's about it.
