View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day

I have to start out by giving a shout out to my big brother (one of them, I have 3 older brothers). Yesterday my brother Klaus, age 45, did his first ironman. He completed it in 10:26:51. I watched his progress all day online. They had a live feed at the finish line and I saw him cross and he looked great. He did the marathon in 3:32:10 AFTER swimming 2.4 miles and biking 112 miles. He was ranked 12 in his division and 114 OVERALL. Amazing.

This weekend was very nice. I sure needed the break. Even physically I was exhausted after the body scan, that prep work to be cleaned before exhausted me. Of Course I did not get as much accomplished this weekend but it was still nice being home. Jason was encouraging me to go out with some friends because it has been a while since I have a girls night. That was sweet of him but I just wanted to be home.

My 12 mile run went well this weekend. This Saturday I have my 10k....it is supposed to be 95 degress, yuck. I can only do my best.

Here is to a productive Monday at work!

Nice job Klaus! I can't even run a 3:32 marathon when it's the ONLY activity I'm doing. :y:

Glad your running is going well. :smile1:

Kudos to the big bro! :thumbu2::clap: I can't bring myself to be out in high temps, either. Hope you're back to normal soon! :kiss:

Wow - your brother did amazing!

I'm sure your 10k will be fine. Remember, the forecast changes on almost an hourly basis so hope for the heat to break.

I just can't force myself to run when it gets over 90, let alone 100 degrees
