Revised schedule

Daily workout: 5 miles / treadmill

Well last week wasn't a very good week in the training department. When it comes down to it, I only ran one day. I wasn't feeling good at the beginning of the week and on saturday it rained and Sunday just got busy with other chores and errands. All in all, not great excuses but it is what is at this point. So, since I only have three weeks till race day, including only 2 saturday long runs, I have decided to adjust my schedule a bit. Also, I have decided to start doing two days of bikrsm yoga. I really do like it and I think it's helping with my running. Plus, I'd Ike to go get better in my practice. So here's how the next three week are gonna go:

Monday (today): 5
Tuesday: yoga
Wednesday: 7
Thursday: yoga
Friday: rest
Saturday: 11
Sunday: rest
Monday: 6
Tuesday: yoga
Wednesday: 8
Thursday: yoga
Friday: rest
Saturday: 9
Monday: 5
Tuesday: yoga
Wednesday: 3
Thursday: yoga
Friday: rest
Saturday: 1/2 marathon!!!

So no real taper but I think it will be ok and totally doable. Maybe?!?!?

New Website

Saturday: 8 miles, walk/run -- I have been sick for the last several days, and wasn't feeling it on Saturday. 
Today: Skipped.. supposed to do 5 miles, but still feeling bad and it rained. 

I may, or may not have mentioned before that I own my own design company. I was a graphic design major in college and after a few years of working for an agency, I decided to start doing some freelance work on the side. Since then, I have gained a few more clients but still work a regular design job during the day. With my hubby's encouragement, I have sort of decided that my personal busines is what I want to do full time, but it's going to take some more clients to get there.
Which all leads me to, my new website!!

I am extremely excited about it. It basically took me a year to complete. I am not really a web designer, but like to do stuff that is more print based. So putting together this site, all by myself, was a bit challenging and definitely a learning curve. If you visit the site, you can see that do a lot of work for professional clients but I also enjoy doing wedding and party invitations, personal business cards, stationery and anything else you can think of.

My next step is to open up my own Etsy shop to better serve the masses. But if anyone has any work that they need done, please contact me. I am extremely reasonable and quick!

Current Reading list

I have always been a fan of books. And when buying books, I usually buy the hard copy. I have picked up several books in the recent months, some actual copies, and some on my iPad.
Currently I have been reading The Girl Who Played With Fire.

I have gotten about 1/2 way through, and just can't seem to remember to pick it up and read. But I need to get moving on it because I have several others on the list. Here's the current:

For my dad

should probably have read before starting my training
