Saturday, I started with my regular Woodlands Fit crew. The group had 8 miles on the schedule, so I turned around and headed back after 30 minutes. I typically have been running whatever long run is on the Woodlands Fit schedule, but I thought that for once, I should stick to my 70.3 training schedule. The best part is that I was actually able to head to the Munchkin's football practice afterwards. I missed the first 3 weeks due to bike rides and the Ten for Texas. It was awesome to see my little dude out there having fun on the football field!

On Sunday, I had planned to meet up at 7 am with a fellow OutRival friend, Lea, for our 2 hour ride. Unfortunately, Mother Nature was not being nice - we woke up at 5 am to crazy storms. By 6 am, the storms had not subsided, so Lea and I decided that a trainer ride might be the only option. By 7 am, I had pretty much given up on an outdoor ride. I selected an entertaining movie that was on cable and started my ride. The rain had pretty much become nothing more than a drizzle and the winds had calmed, but for some reason, our power decided to go out 25 minutes into my 2 hour ride.
No movie, an almost dead iPhone and no a/c. It was going to be a boring ride! Luckily, I remembered the laptop and was able to watch "Spirit of the Marathon" while I rode. Needless to say, this was pretty boring compared to riding outdoors. I am thankful that I've rarely had to use the trainer! As for the power, it was out for about 3 hours. Sigh.

We spent the remainder of the day at my Sister-in-Law's house with the Hub's family. We're looking forward to Halloween this week - carving pumpkins, trick or treating, getting the kid's all dressed up. Fun times!
How was your weekend? Are you looking forward to Halloween?
