Another week in the books. I said last week that I had the goal of upping my mileage up to 40 miles per week, and I'm almost there - 39 for the week. I'll take it gladly! Here's the week in recap:
Monday: Rest Day!
Tuesday: Ran 7 Miles
Wednesday: Ran 8 Miles
Thursday: Ran 5 Miles, 15 minutes of upper body and core work
Friday: 45 minutes of spin, 1.5 mile walk
Saturday: Rest Day
Sunday: 19 Mile Run
I've been having 2 rest days a week lately - this isn't really intentional but it has been nice.
Obviously I read several blogs on a regular basis, but the reasons are varied. Some are inspirational, some are fast runners, some have adorable kids and others I just feel very connected to after lots of emails and comments over time. Some, though, I read entirely because they make me laugh. Some are witty writers, others take hilarious pictures and some rely on shock humor.
If you are in the mood for a laugh, you have to check out these blogs. They have my official and arbitrary stamp of approval!
Running off the Reeses: Cely is unbelievably smart but doesn't make me feel guilty for spending a Friday night at home watching Mean Girls. Runs a marathon, posts picture of attractive topless men and makes me laugh. Check.
Eats Clean Greens: Michelle Marie runs like she stole something. And by her writing, it is clear she stole someone's sense of humor, because she plenty to go around. Plus she gets to live in NYC and eat in amazing restaurants that I drool over.
Almost Runner: First of all, I am infinitely cooler because I have actually met this gal in real life. Read Stephanie's blog for a dose of daily humor and her attempts at running. Nice to read a blog where not everything is sparkles and sunshine all day long.
It's a Dog Lick Baby World: Even if you hate funny (and if you do, boo-hoo to you) you should read Kara's blog just to learn the secret to running 50 mile races. Sneak peak: the secret is running. A lot.
Eat, Drink and Be Meiri: When I'm not drooling over the scenery where she lives (apparently California is pretty or something?) I'm in awe of her impressive mix of triathlon training and hilarious commentary. Be warned, folks - this is not a PG blog. But that may be what makes this a winning combination.
What is one fitness goal you have for the week?
I'd like to save my rest day this week for Sunday (hubby's b-day) so expect daily updates on Daily Mile and come yell at me if you don't see one for any day before that!
What blogs make you laugh? Any recommendations for me?
I love reading funny blogs so share the wealth! I desperately need new jokes to steal from people, so help a girl out would you?
