|Another goal would be to jog the recovery instead of sloooooowly walk it|
Wednesday (19,677 steps) - Slept in. Special off-site run club at Next Door (where we went last summer). I had 5 miles on schedule that I really didn't feel like doing. I ran 2 with Heather and finished up the last 3 with Dave. It was not a good run. Lots of walk breaks and felt pretty crappy overall. We stayed for a few minutes for beer and appetizers.
Saturday (41,199 steps) - 16 miles with Runners Edge. We had the aid station at the mile 7 turn around. SUPER pretty while we were setting up!
I had worn long sleeves and a vest when we started out - it was only in the mid twenties! Sun was out, so it heated up QUICK, and I was happy to ditch the extra clothes at mile 7 and just run in a tank after that.
Lunch at Sweet Tomatoes, quick trip to the store. Cleaned the bathroom, showered, went to see the movie "Sing" and then did NOTHING the rest of the day.
Sunday (30,330 steps) - RMRR marathon training session ten mile run. I didn't even get up until 7:00, drove over to Twin Lakes, and was a bit surprised when I arrived at 7:45 to see we would be wearing bibs... that doesn't really seem like a training run! It was colder than I expected, so I wore my 1/4 zip (and was glad I did). A was volunteering with Lisa at the start/finish and then moved over to the 3/7 mile aid station. As for my run, the first 7 or so miles were pretty good, struggled a bit at the end. For the first time in AGES, both feet went completely numb. Painful and annoying, but I was able to run through it. Pleased to finish with no splits over 11:4x.
|Lisa got this shot as I was coming in to the mile 3 aid station|
|Not much difference in colors from when I was last here in January|
|Bright colors on a dreary day|
|Bunny is A's favorite stuffed animal that she has had since she was 2!|
Monday (12,387 steps) - A slept in a bit and then I took her over to Ang's house when I went to work. Went to Red Robin for dinner and then one more trip to the grocery store because we have nothing to eat for dinner this week. I watched House of Cards while A worked on her science fair project.
- 163,525 steps (not too bad for not meeting my goal two days!)
- 43.2 miles run
- 2 barre classes
- The spring burn-off challenge at the barre studio started this week. I'm not all in for the first time. It's just too much to do "all the barre classes" AND do "all the running." I'm entering into about 6 weeks of high mileage and just can't do it and get all the sleep and recovery I need. Will be interesting to see who will be champion of the studio!
