Okay! Last check in Friday – how is everybody doing?
This week was really tough for me. Last Friday’s 9-mile run was great – we felt really good, the weather was perfect, and my knee didn’t even bother me. (I borrowed my husband’s knee brace, which is a little big, but worked. I have since found my own.) We kept a pretty good 10-minute-mile pace, from what we can tell (watch wearing fail…). Then we went to lunch and went home. I expected to feel both hungry and sore, but was neither. I felt great the next day and we went for a nice bike ride in the fabulous spring weather.
I played hockey on Sunday and did Yoga on Monday, which didn’t go very well. I wound up feeling sick and disoriented. Tuesday, I woke up still sick, so I skipped my Tuesday run. It was my husband’s birthday and I was throwing him a surprise dinner (and worked late), so I didn’t go when I got home from work. This all led to me feeling like quite the slacker on Wednesday morning when I woke up and didn’t go running, so we went rock climbing at my husband’s gym on Wednesday night and I hit the elliptical there for 30 minutes. Yesterday, I finally got my act together and put in 3 miles (in 29 minutes!) on my usual route, which would have been fine except for the freezing rain pelting my face.
Tomorrow I go for my 10-mile run. I’m not sure how it will go. We’re going to my in-law’s for the weekend, and there is a trail there that I love running on, so I’m excited, but I’ve never done two laps of it (it’s a 5-mile loop), plus I’m running it alone, which I am nervous about, since normally I have a friend. I’m gonna try to put together a sweet new running playlist sometime today, but I might not have time.
How’s everybody else doing?
