Weekly Review
Well it’s been a lackluster week of exercise and training for my next half.  My goal for yesterday was to get a 9 mile run in, but I woke up with a wicked sore throat that still hasn’t gone away…booooo.  So I haven’t been doing much in terms of exercise this weekend.

Here is my week in training:
Monday: Spinning – 1 hour
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: 2 mile run
Thursday: Spinning – 1 hour
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Sore throat induced rest 🙁
Sunday: Gardening?

I guess I got a little exercise in today as I planted my vegetable garden.  I planted carrots, green bell peppers, and 4 varieties of tomatoes including Sun Golds and the heirloom variety Mr. Stripey.  I love that name 🙂

My Garden

Yes, I know it looks like a fortress, but I have some very persistent birds that I need to keep away from the veggies.  We also had to set netting up around our blueberry bushes, which are starting to come in nicely.  I can’t wait for fresh picked blueberries!

I’d also like to congratulate everyone who ran the Expedition Everest Challenge last night.  It looked like everyone had a wonderful race and I’m so proud of everyone who finished!

Here’s hoping this sore throat goes away quickly.  Have a wonderful week!
