Highlight of the Week: A kickbutt long run on Friday (with friends!) where I wanted to keep going… and would have, had I not had an appointment to get to! Okay, and ending my week with a windy race that left me feeling ready to tackle my 5K next week (more about the race tomorrow)!
Oops. I did NOT mean to have two flexing pics. Obnox.

- Man, something really clicked after I took my rest day on Friday the 8th, and I’ve just felt GREAT since then! Maybe all this healthy eating does pay off? Nah… Whatever it is, I am going to ride it for as long as I can. I LOVED getting some middle distance runs in a few times this week!
- I did miss getting a bike session in this week though. Or any sort of cross training. Oops. Does walking all over Manhattan on Saturday count?!
