SIX: The number of marathons that Oscar has run, including yesterday's finish at the Pittsburgh Marathon. He didn't reach his goal of breaking 3 hours but he did PR! He's getting a little closer each time and I know, one day, he will get there. I can't even really begin to express how proud of him I am. He has always been my hero and my true source of motivation in my own athletic endeavours! GREAT JOB out there yesterday O! Although at first he claimed that he was going to take a break from the marathon for a while, by the time we were eating our post race ice cream after dinner, he was looking up the dates of the Harrisburg and Columbus Marathons this fall. ;)
19,000: Approximate number of finishers in yesterday's race (including half marathon and full marathon). INSANITY! I did my run through the South Side and Strip District while the race was going on and it was just awesome to see the streets of Pittsburgh absolutely packed with runners. I felt like all of Pittsburgh was pounding the pavement yesterday morning and it was so fun and inspiring to watch!
SEVENTEEN: Number of hours I rode my bike last week.
NINETEEN: Number of hours I have on the schedule for bike riding this week.
1: Number of workouts on my schedule today. 2500 yard easy swim. Oh recovery day how I love you more than you can know.
44.23: Number of miles I ran last week. My running (especially off the bike) is much improved over last year. But I know I have a loooooong way to go. Do I have a sub 3:35 marathon in me in Coeur d'Alene?
FIVE: The number of times Roxy has yawned at me since I've started typing this blog. Her way of telling me she's bored with my "numbers"? :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend and congrats to all who raced! It was a HUGE weekend for swim/bike/run and I thoroughly enjoyed "watching" everyone crush it! :)
