Some of the best laid plans
Aren't really planned! :)
It's a rainy day here in Atlanta... we don't have too many of them and I'm loving it. We slept with the windows open last night and fell asleep to the sound of the raindrops falling. Today I'm sitting in my jammies, with my hubby behind me at his desk because he has the freedom of being able to work from home. I have 20 pounds of apples in the kitchen waiting for me to make applesauce. A totally unplanned amazing Monday. I love when weeks start off like that.
I've totally dropped my training plan. I've just been doing what I want and I'll be honest, I'm happy. Really, really happy. And shockingly enough I had a pretty amazing September training wise. I ended up running nearly 115 miles throughout the month. They were slow, hilly miles, spent talking about the future with my favorite running partner. If given the chance to follow a plan of have a month like that, I think I'd choose that every.single.time. It just fits me best!
Yesterday we rode at the Gaps. Sunday I'm running a half marathon (with Matt... yay... I get to see he and Jenn TWICE this week!). In two weeks I'm racing at Rev3 South Carolina (and get to meet the fabulous Alisa!). At the end of the month, the Diet Coke Mafia is representing at the Atlanta Marathon. I'm having a ball right now!
Life is constantly changing for us and I love that. I've always been such a planner and I'll have to say, I'm kind of liking flying by the seat of my pants.
