Will Start Again...Tomorrow

I'm giving myself one more day of recovery...why...cause I want to (& cause the schedule says so) :-)

Last night even with the slight headaches that we were carrying around with us, we managed to make it our volleyball game at 7:30. Apparently all the drinking really helped Jason as the Ref asked him if had been practicing or training anywhere in the last few weeks. He's really learning how to hit the ball hard and surprised everyone on our team the first time he did it. So surprised actually that non of us were ready for the other team to actually return the ball and so lost a point. I made a few good plays as well and am always surprised to see how much Jason and I have improved since we started playing a few years ago.

We have decided to give the Hal Higdon plan a try until the marathon and then depending on how we are feeling we will choose to run the marathon or half marathon in Sarasota. The general form of the schedule is Cross training mondays (this is perfect because we have volleyball anyways), Off on Tuesday (great because I'm not 100% from my weekend festivities today), Runing on Wed, Thur and Friday and then running long on Sundays. This plan works much better for winter running and can keep me in the game at work as well.

In very exciting news, my dad is coming to Chicago the weekend of the Superbowl!!!! He can't stand being out of the city when one of his teams is in a final game, so it's time to start making a game plan for Game Day.

So.....you know what I'm going to say now right...

GO BEARS !!!!!

Jason needs to post so we can cheer for the Colts with him. Just sayin. ;)

You'll have to let me know how you like Hal's program. I've thought about using it the past few times, just never have gotten around to it.

Go Bears! Sounds like a good game plan for the marathon or half-marathon. Good luck on the game plan.

I looked up Hal Higdon's plan and it goes something like this:

Monday:  Root for the Bears.
Tuesday:  Root for the Bears.
Wednesday:  Root for the Bears.
Thursday:  Root for the Bears.
Friday:  Root for the Bears.
Saturday:  Root for the Bears + drink beer.
Sunday:  Root for the Colts (JUST KIDDING! It's actually a rest day.)
