I'm here!!

FYI - I AM alive, but barely hanging on. :-) Sonoma was absolutely FANTASTIC. The weather was perfect. The company the best. Momo has all of the pictures, so we'll have to wait until she send em out.. but I also have a VERY cool story to share about a "Mark Allen Clone" that we met. Oh, and the red boots. They came out, and EVERYONE loved them, and I was so happy, and then I was walking down the stairs and the HEEL BROKE off!!! Seriously... I need to find a local store to get them fixed... I guess no more drunkin walking around in the boots...

Unfortunately I got sick... and not just a foo foo cold type sick. I've got a fever, and I'm wheezing and I feel like someone is kicking my ass from here to Tucson. Literally. The Doc gave me some antibiotics, but wasn't positive it was bacterial, so I'm giving it a bit before filling the script.... So, unfortunately my training numbers are going to be zilch for this week, until HOPEFULLY the weekend. Usually, I power thru (much to my husbands dismay and eye rolling of how crazy I am), but the fever is basically keeping me in bed. I'm putting a positive spin on it all.
After scrunching together last weeks workouts (~180miles in 5 days on the bike), my IT band hurt on my Friday am run, so I stopped it short at 1:10 vs 1:50. The good news on that is I did a 9:30 pace with 145 avg HR even with the tightness.... So, my point is, taking this week of will rest my IT band, I hope.....

Here's last weeks #'s ~12 hours (including 1hr of strength)

I'm having a moment of silence on behalf of the boot heel....

Good numbers last week! Get lots & lots of rest this week!!

It broke?? I always wonder if the heel of my boot is going to break when I'm running in them- not training, but from here to there. Ouch.

Hope you feel better!

Looked at momo's pics...looks like a great time! I am sure you can get that heel fixed...those boots are too good not to wear!
Take Care and feel better!

Tell me, what kind of saddle do you have?

I can't wait to hear more about the trip and see pics. And hear the cool story.

Sorry you are not feeling well. But way to put a positive spin on it!!!
