Escape from the Frozen Tundra

So, we stayed home for a week and then decided to go back to Florida for a bit. There was more snow being dumped. I’m over winter.

We have some family stuff to do here, but in between I’m studying up for my coaching exam. I’ve been reading about heart rate training, which has been more interesting than I thought it would be. I just wish the text had been updated — the book was published in 1998 and I’m sure new science could be applied. But likely for my purposes, this book still is effective.

We’re hanging out at the horse show this afternoon. I had a couple nice outdoor runs, including 10x400s today that, considering I only got about 2 hours of sleep last night for no discernible reason, went better than expected in the range 1:36-1:42. I only felt kind of sick on the last one, but recovered quickly. Hopefully if lactic acid build up is the issue my stomach’s been having, this workout will help my body learn to better clear it out.

Regardless, it’s so nice to be in some sunshine.

My step-MIL competed today. She did awesome and made it to the jump-off. She rode clean until the last jump, but she looked terrific.

  1. I’m in Miami this week and am so glad I picked this week to escape the frozen tundra up north. One of my running round already cancelled this weekend’s run due to extreme wind chills, and I’m down here laughing at people wearing puffer jackets because it’s only 72. I’m running a race tomorrow morning and it’s supposed to be in the low 40s as well – I’m planning on shorts and a tank (maybe a long sleeve HeatGear shirt), and am expecting to be in the minority as well. Hope you have a great time this weekend!
