A Beautiful Week

Holy Moly

Winter Biking

Week of January 8, 2012:

Thursday: Run (25 min. + 2x20 sec sprints)

Friday: Bike commute to and from work

Saturday: Bike ride for groceries at hippie food store, Yoga

These Texas sunsets!  My goodness, they slay me.  I love that I can share them with you here, though my camera can’t capture the incredible panoramic view of a Texas sky.  You’ll just have to come visit me to see for yourself.

Last week was a good one: productive enough at work, relaxed enough at home, and I managed to run three times!  I can’t remember the last time I fit three runs into one week.  Let’s hope this habit sticks around because I’ve got a race with my name on it and the credit card bill to prove it.

By the way, I’m really enjoying my two 20-second sprints at the end of short runs.  I’d like to do it after both short runs each week, but I’ll settle for doing it at least once.  In the next few weeks, I need to make some adjustments to when and how I do my runs in order to get some mileage under my feet for the half-marathon, but I’ll tell you more about that soon.  Life!  It’s constantly throwing curveballs at me.  But running is treating me well, and I plan to treat my training schedule right.

Have a terrific week, everyone!


  1. It's kind of nice that your campus is so green even though it's January. Mine just seems dead and dirty since it's not very covered with snow right now.

    Keep those glorious sunsets coming!

  2. I will try! Wintertime is really beautiful down here, though I have to say, I'm kinda over the live oaks. On campus, everywhere you look, it's the same damn tree! ;-)

    I will say, though, that I do miss the snow down here. Fingers crossed we have another snow day before March!

  3. PS I'm so glad you mentioned the new Reply function for Blogger comments! I may have to try to update the commenting feature on my (very old) other blog.

  4. Sell that sunset picture to A & M for the cover a admissions booklet. Very beautiful!

  5. Ha, indeed! Texas continues to surprise and delight me. If only we could replace Oklahoma with Michigan...that would make my life easier.
