Sunday Snippets October 4

Happy Sunday! I didn’t participate in Friday Fragments but I thought Sunday Snippets would be just as good.

Thursday night Little S had her first high school swim meet. I was waiting to post “official” results, but since I still don’t see them on the website- from my best observations (and the scoreboard) she placed 3rd in the 200 meter freestyle and 2nd place in the 100 meter freestyle. This was like a practice meet so they had all the kids split into 2 teams- they mixed Varsity and JV swimmers. No pictures because I volunteered to be a timer, but I was thrilled that she was in the lane next to me for her 200.  She lost lane count at the end and missed a flip turn -because she thought she was done- and still managed 3rd place! When she finished she was shaking, couldn’t breath and totally unaware that she placed so highly. She thought she was dead last! wpid-20151001_164313.jpg
Big J and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on Friday. Unfortunately, J had to go into work later that night, but I hung out with little P and played games. wpid-img_20151002_174311.jpgwpid-20151002_191222.jpg
Saturday Little P had a birthday party for one of her little friends. When we got home I hit the weights and made a healthy dinner for the two of us.

Leftovers for breakfast and a solid Sunday run!
wpid-20151004_121314.jpg9 miles at under 9 min/mile. I’m going to try to focus on strength and speed and a little less on high mileage. Another attempt to see if I can budge this weight in the right direction while training for the Houston Spartan Sprint. I took one dose of XOJO pre-run and 2 doses over the course of the run. My energy level picked up at the end and I pushed myself to a faster pace for the last 1.5 miles. wpid-20151004_181546.jpgNow, it’s off to bed so I can keep on bein’ awesome!

How was y’all’s weekend? Can’t wait to hear from y’all!
