Weekly Roundup 10.9-10.15 & 10.16-10.22

I’m getting behind in my recaps and a lot has happened in the last few weeks…

For starters, I’m learning how to Olympic lift!  I’m totally committed to Boston 2018 and the one thing I’ve always struggled with is strength training so I recruited my coworkers for help.  Right now I’m working on some basic movements—using pulleys, kettlebells, free weights and my own body weight but in a few short weeks I can already tell I’m getting stronger.

I’m just about back to where I want to be in mileage right now (16 miles last week, 20 miles this week) with a long run of 7 miles.  My mom joined me on the bike this week for my long run.  It was a PERFECT weather day and so nice having company again!

Georgie and I went back to the trails—3 miles this time—and when we got home I literally pulled a hundred ticks off of her.  A HUNDRED!  It was like a bad dream.  I promise you we won’t be back in the woods until the first frost… Sorry G.

I went to Run Club TWO WEEKS IN A ROW.  Crazy, right?

Other highlights:

·      In non-running news, my BFF Barbie and Uncle John came to visit!  We spend an awesome day down Cape stopping at the beach in Wellfleet, snacking at the French bakery, wine tasting in Truro and visited a brewery in Orleans.
