Week (s) in review

Okay so it seems that in the New Year bloggers are trying to give a little weekly summary, perhaps to keep themselves accountable, perhaps to track their mileage better, perhaps just because they are bored of writing and just want some content.

I'm going to jump on the wagon. Mostly because I think it is good for any readers and myself to have a neat little summary every week to see what I am (or am not) doing. I also liked doing the weekly reviews before Flying Pig last year. Also with 14 weeks to go til Boston I need to get my butt in gear and form a plan. As you will see the last few weeks are screaming "flying by the seat of my pants" and not focusing in on a training plan that is going to help me get faster, more efficient, and all around healthier this year. I'm about half way through "Advanced Marathoning" and hope to have figured out a plan for training by the end of next week.

Onto the summary (I'm including an extra few weeks to show the randomness that has been the last few weeks):

I don't know why, but pictures of runners where the flash hits the shiny parts of the clothing always makes me laugh.

Nice photo.. Now I remember all of the people that ran past my brother and I as we headed towards the Boston Store. That was a good day to run.

where's the "ate raw oatmeal and raisin cookie dough from bowl while reading a get fuzzy anthology and having a bubble bath"? i feel you have gaps in your confession.

Great picture E! That was such a fun run. Tell me how you liked that book. I'm going to do a monthly running book review for the club and that's one I'd like to do. I actually have that book in my possession, but feel I'm not "advanced" yet.
