Getting dirty with the ladies...

** sorry, this post has been in my drafts folder all week... should've posted earlier, but it's been a weird week at work **

I finally hit 10 miles for the week last week! I know this is very wimpy for most of you hardcore runners out there but trust me, it's an accomplishment for me. It's the first time I've hit double digits in weekly mileage this year and considering I ran three total the week before and four total the week before that, it's a pat on the back for me! :)

I seem to like to procrastinate and get my runs in during the weekend. I started my Friday off right with a 3 miler.

Avg pace: 9:54 min/mi
Avg hr: 177bpm

1: 10:11
2: 9:57
3: 9:33

After work, I did weights, too. I had a two-a-day! (Did anyone else watch that show on MTV?)

Then on Saturday, I told myself that I *had* to step up the mileage so I went for five miles. If I felt good, I would make it six. Well, I didn't feel good - those five miles were tough! So sad how quickly I lose my fitness level considering I was a half marathon loving machine not too long ago...

Avg pace: 10:24 min/mi
Avg hr: 176bpm

1: 10:15
2: 10:10
3: 10:17
4: 10:53
5: 10:28

On Sunday, I was feeling pooped but I really liked the idea of hitting ten miles for the week so I did a quick two in the rain that morning.

2.0 mi
Avg pace: 10:10 min/mi
Avg hr: 162bpm

1: 10:36
2: 9:43

In other exciting news, I have two new race announcements for this month. I have (or will soon) signed up for the following two races:

March 22nd: Mermaid Run

I did a Mermaid event last fall with my first duathlon and loved it! An old TNT buddy told me about it so I decided to sign up for the 10K.

And now for the CRAZEEEEE one...

March 28: Big Sur Mud Run

Yes, it's *exactly* what you think. I think it will be a riot!!! The best part is that I am running it as part of a team with some of the girls from your favorite crew and mine, the ROHOs ;)

And I also entered the lottery for the Nike Women's Half, my favorite race ever! This is the race that I think every woman should run at least once.

I feel a cold coming on... glad it's the weekend so that I can catch up on some sleep!

Congrats on hitting double digits and signing up for races. Isn't it intriguing how both go so hand-in-hand? Have a good weekend, Audrey!

Congrats on a double-digit week! I've always wanted to do a mud run. In NY there was one called Mudders and Grunters that involved a chest-high stream crossing. Sadly I never got around to doing it. I hope we all get into Nike!
