Training Update + $50 Gift Card Giveaway

I missed this past weekend's long run (was supposed to be 9 miles), and didn't run from Friday through Monday....slacker! I was out of town and it was nice to do absolutely nothing all weekend, so not a total loss.

But starting off the new week, I got up early on Monday morning for a nice spin class. It's the best way to start the week! Then on Tuesday morning we got up bright & early for the regular Track Tuesday (which has now been dubbed Trash Tuesday after my Freudian slip in an email to the girls) for 10x400s. I prefer 400s to 800s, so I was down for it. We started out at a 6 something pace and then ended up around 8 something towards the end. It is so so humid here! Today I took off but tomorrow I'm hoping to head to the beach for a morning run or either to the gym to run on the dreadmill, however the mood strikes me.

I've felt kind of lackadaisical about training lately. And about life. Weird.

So for some fun....

A suhweet giveaway for anyone still reading...

I really have been lacking in kitchen gadgets, cookware, etc. lately so when I was contacted about this giveaway, I was pumped! Anyone interested in a new Le Creuset dutch oven, or perhaps a hand blender for easy soups? (Me, Me, Me!!)

CSN Stores contacted me to do a giveaway for a $50 gift card to any of their sites. At first I thought, who/what is CSN Stores?? But then I looked further and discovered the gems that are Cookware.com, FitnessEquipmentandMore.com, and BedroomFurniture.com. Wowza! Sweet giveaway, methinks.

So here's what I'm gonna do. If you want one entry into this giveaway, simply comment on this post, perhaps telling me which site you would use your gift card at. If you want to, or you can just comment to say hi :)

But for anyone who donates to my Team in Training fundraising campaign ($10 or more), I will give you 100 entries into this giveaway. How does that sound? :) To qualify for the 100 entries, please come back here after you donate & comment to let me know. Or you can leave a note in the comments section of the donation form. Either way.

You can donate easily here.

**UPDATE** I will announce the winner Monday morning July 26th! So you have all weekend to get your donations in.

Good luck!

  2. My sister is a 8 1/2 yr survivor of a bone marrow transplant due to stage 4 Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She ran in the Chicago Marathon in 2003 (just 2 yrs after the bone marrow transplant) with her husband and her bone marrow donor. She ran for the Team in Training.

    I love CSN and I would love to be a bit selfish and get the Carlos by Carlos Santana Tanzia Women's Dress Sandals in Pewter

  5. I would definitely use it for the kitchen goodies! You'd think living with a professional chef would give me access to all the coolest kitchenware/gadgets, but that is NOT the case :)

  15. When you train hard your muscles need proper recovery. Just taking some rest may not be enough. According to nutrition scientists BCAA is one of the key nutritional compounds to help your muscles recover properly. I tried this product myself. Purchased it at amazon http://www.amazon.com/enhanced-L-Glutamine-capsules-Military-Tested/dp/B008JHQ1JK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1394122798&sr=8-2&keywords=military+grade Impressive results! Easier recoveries and more strength for further trainings!
