Friday: Rest
Saturday: - Run 3: 12km slow & steady - actually ran 13kms 81 mins
Sunday: Rest

Had a pretty good week training wise.  The speed session is HARD but it is supposed to be.  I don't dread it, but I'm happy when it's done!

I'm actually doing about 10 minutes of core every morning including rest days.  It's 2 tabata sets where you alternate the exercise for 20 seconds followed by a 10 second rest x 8.  Currently I do a V sit, flutter kick, scissors, & bicycle twice over in each set.  I pinky promised my PT I'd do it every day.  So far so good.  We had visitors on the weekend so I had a little company after my long run Saturday morning.

The youngest made up his own afterwards, just gorgeous!!!
