Sometimes Things Turn Out OK

usb drive

Some days you think are horrible can turn out ok.  This morning I managed to destroy  all the USB ports on my work computer. Guess what uses USB? The keyboard and mouse… Luckily for most of the day, I had one USB port working with my keyboard and I found an old school PS2 mouse (track ball!).  Because I was trying to fix this,  I didn’t getComputer Mouse anything done in the morning. Then I had a 3 hour  client meeting, definitely no work done during it!  So I when I finally sat down to get work done,  my keyboard then stopped working. Its next to impossible to write code without a keyboard by the way…

What a blessing! I was able to leave early since I couldn’t do anything! And I got to my Winter Distance Training on TIME for the first time. 🙂

We did a nice hill work out and I got to run all my computer-induced stress out.  Some plyometrics, stair climbing and stretching were also included.

When I decided to do a half marathon, I knew I wouldn’t be motivated to run the long distances on my own nor be able to keep up with my running friends.  Through some googling (is that a verb??), I found a training program that started the very next Sunday! The Winter Distance Training Program hosted by Potomac River Running.

The best part of this program? It was so long (20 weeks!!!) there was no base running needed.  Many programs want you to be able to run at least 5 miles at the start.  It’s aimed at the National Marathon and Half Marathon at the end of March. It can be geared to the Disney Princess Half Marathon , which I plan on doing.

In the program, there is a group long run on Sunday mornings and a workout on Wednesday evenings. And there is  a training plan mapping out the rest of the week. I need to work on getting in some more/longer runs on my own.

Weather on the run today:

Partially Cloudy and Mild Temps (55°)

Moon with clouds
