Would You Care for a Spot of Tea?

My mom sent me home with a tea pot and matching cups and saucers over the weekend, so on Sunday, to add to my already exciting Downton Abbey viewing experience, I decided to enjoy some tea with my PBS.

I thought I was all cool with my fancy tea cup and saucer.

…but my cats quickly corrected me with their disapproving stares.

U’z an idiot, hooman.

I know girls, I know.

In other news, my half marathon training starts in two weeks and I couldn’t be more excited. I decided to start four weeks earlier than the plan suggested to get myself back into a routine. Here’s what the first few weeks are going to look like.

*Sunday
(Rest)
Monday
(Easy)
Tuesday
(Cross Train)
Wednesday
(Easy)
Thursday
(Cross Train)
Friday
(Rest)
Saturday
(Long)
Rest 30 minutes
(3 miles)
30-40 minutes 30 minutes
(3 miles)

After I finish week four, I’ll launch into the actual training plan. Here’s a sample.

30-40 minutes Rest 6 miles

You can do the math on how it will work out, but I actually only run as far as 10 miles before the race. This made me nervous at first, but I was told that once you get that far, a quick 5k is to finish it out is nothing. That makes total sense! Anyway, I’ll be posting the plan on my Fitness page sometime this week.
