Friday is Here!!

This has been an endless week for me. I woke up on Tuesday thinking it was Wednesday, and it's been all downhill from there.

Luckily, Friday is really here this time. I swear somehow an extra day got stuck in this week somehow, but I can't prove it.

It's going to be a beautiful weekend! I'm so excited that the temperatures are going to be so mild that I'll actually WANT to spend time outside this weekend. Woot!
I have a 16 mile run on tap for the weekend. With all the skipped runs the past week or so, I may run tonight after work and do the long run on Sunday. It's all up to my daughter and whether or not she pushes me to go to the gym tonight after work. We are planning to start a new lifting workout that I've put together for us twice a week, instead of going to the gym and winging it on lifting days. She's anxious to start.

In other news, I signed up for the B.A.A. 5K for the day before the Boston Marathon (one week post-marathon for me).

So I got an e-mail today that included a link to an article about iPhone apps for runners. Now, I don't own an iPhone, but reading through the descriptions of some of the free apps makes me want one! I've always heard that the service for one of these phones is outrageous, but jeez! if all of this stuff works the way it describes, it would be worth it! I know that some of you peeps have iPhones... is it really the greatest thing since sliced bread, or should I just stick with a regular old phone this year when I'm due for my upgrade?

Guess I'll need to do some actual research before I make a decision one way or the other.

Oh I would love an iPhone too! My provider doesn't carry them. Boo. They really do some crazy things. I would be interested to see what the app is for runners.

Good luck on the 16 miles! Great that you go 'gymming' with your daughter. That's great bonding.

I don't have an i-phone either, but maybe I should! Looks like other than heart rate, it can pretty much track everything.

I would love an iPhone. They just seem so sexy and cool.

You know I have an iPhone. Most of the Aps are for the current generation (3G) model, and I have an "original" one...GAH! That being said, I love my iPhone. The month service fee is $30 (I think) for the 3G models. My husband has a crackberry, and his monthly service fee (for internet access & email and such) is $35.00, so the $30.00 for Internet seems typical.

You do have to have an account with AT&T.
