Have Dental Floss, Will Travel

Mapping the world, one waxy strand at a time…

This Weekend, I…

-Went to sleep before 10:30 PM.

-Turned off the computer when I wasn’t doing work.

-Drank a lot of water (and some Powerade Zero… and a Blue Moon while going over race maps).

-Started a non-work-related book.

-Watched Butler beat Florida.

-Reevaluated my training plan.

We spent a fair bit of time working on the race course, including running through it with two of our teammates to get a sense of logistics and time.  I also spent awhile laying low (unfortunately missing a bridal shower and a trip to NY with friends), trying to recover from some junky lungs that have been persisting since I got sick a few weeks ago.

But all in all, a solid start to slowing down.

I’m looking forward to implementing some of the new strategies I came up with for training over the next few weeks, to see if I can get some power back in my legs (more on this later this week).

And I’m excited to try to integrate this reading/sleeping/unplugging routine into my everyday life.

For now, though, it’s time for a little road trip.  After I get home from work Tuesday, Brent and I are getting out of Dodge for a couple days and heading west for some high-peak fun in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia.

Mount Davis, we're coming for you!

Maybe someday we’ll get to nab some peaks off the East Coast!

    Sounds like an awesome weekend! I wish I had time for non-school related books…I’m hoping that time will come this summer!
