Ho hum...

Nothing exciting to report. I am so excited that I am getting my hair cut and highlighted this afternoon! Yay, no more roots! And, the weather is looking great for Austin! Low around 32 at the start, warming up to the low 40's by the time I'm done running. I'll probably start with shorts, a short sleeve dri-fit shirt with a long sleeve on top and the all-important gloves. By the afternoon, it's supposed to warm-up to the mid-60s which makes for an awesome afternoon of shopping at the San Marcos outlets!

Last night, I did the 10-minute Si6 abs workout. Oh my God, talk about a painful 10 minutes! I wanted to steer clear of the squats and lunges until Sunday, since my knee is still hurting. I also ran for a quick 20 minutes on the treadmill. After my 1st mile, I was really feeling good. Even the knee felt pretty good. I really wanted to do 40, but I REALLY needed to do some cleaning and homework! I have to admit that our house has been a mess since school started and I just couldn't take it anymore! Between family, work, school and running, cleaning house has been booted pretty low on the list of priorities these days. I am seriously considering finding someone who can come in and clean thoroughly every couple of weeks!

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend! Good luck to everyone running Austin, I hope to see some of my fellow bloggers, Striders and Houston Fitters out there!!!

Looks like you're going to get perfecto weather which will hopefully offset the tougher new course. Enjoy!

Good luck at the race this weekend! I'll be thinking of you!

I love getting my hair done. There's just something so relaxing about having someone else wash and dry my hair.
