First things first...I hired a running coach!! I am going with Tiffany Henness of Thoroughly Thriving. She's RRCA Certified and I have followed her on her blog for a long time and appreciate that she is what she calls an "adult onset runner" (same as me!), has dealt with some injuries that kept her from running (same as me!), and has a strong focus on faith (same as me!). I had a great conversation with her on Thursday afternoon and decided to take the plunge and give it a try. I will definitely be blogging my progress as we go. I'm expecting to get my first assignments to gauge my current levels out of the way over this week and then it is full steam ahead! We will be working on building a good base so that when it comes time to implement training for my goal race (that's going to be the Citrus Heritage Half Marathon in January 2016) we are ready to do what needs to be done in order for me to meet my primary goal of showing up at the starting line feeling prepared. And a shiny new PR wouldn't hurt either. *wink*

|What was left at the end of the sampling!|
We are a football family, so having NFL football back on for preseason just feels so good! It's like seeing an old friend...and it just so happens that the Steelers are the hubby's team and the Vikings are mine! Nothing like a good old-fashioned showdown to start the pre-season off right.
There was also lots of little errands and tasks in there that I won't bore you to death with! What I will confess to though is a serious lack of working out over the weekend. Oops...it seems the battle of the lazy brain is still shifted to the other side and I'm not winning it yet. But I anticipate that this coming week will get me on a more serious schedule and with the help of Coach Tiffany I won't be able to slack off much longer.
What was the highlight of your weekend?
