The Week in Review

In the Tri world:
I got in 2 runs this week. My pace is picking up, and I feel like I can consistently go longer at a faster pace. I feel like a 10 minute mile is within grasp, for the first time in 7 years! That is exciting for me!
I broke down and put the bike on the trainer last night. Jack loves when I ride the trainer. He stands by and watches me. Plus, he's the best support crew I have. He cheers me on, and then he takes a towel and dries the sweat as it hits the ground.
It's going to be a long winter, so I went to ebay and bid on season 3 of Gilmore Girls. GG's is such a guilty pleasure for me. I started watching the show with Shayna when it first came out, and it struck a chord with me. Hopefully, Season 3will get me through a month or 2 on the trainer.
I'm not sure why I've been avoiding the pool, but I have. The goal this week is to get in the water at least once. We'll see if I make it.

In other news, Jack and Shayna are both feeling better. But Kenz is sick now. She has been spiking fevers since last night, and we are planning to keep her home tomorrow. Let's hope she feels better soon.

Bonus: Picture of the week:

This is my Great Uncle Pete, and his wife, Aunt Nete. Shayna took this picture on Saturday, at Uncle Pete's 90th birthday party.
I want to be them!

Truly, I don't think it's possible to be their age, and not be beautiful.

*sigh* I love ebay and I love complete TV seasons on DVD! It sounds like you have a lot to motivate you! Hopefully Mack feels better soon! It's not fun being sick!

So good to talk to you tonight. I too want to be Uncle Pete and Aunt Nete, they are just so wonderful.

I hope I can be that spry when I get to be 90.

Hope Mack feels better soon.

happy birthday to your uncle Pete! My bike is not on the trainer... yet. however, i should, since I'll be gone this weekend, so I won't be taking advantage of riding outdoors. Hmmm. I also just noticed that we both have the same background! Too funny!
