This was a race week, so I tried to take it a little easy. I didn’t have a chance to get to boot camp, but that’s changing soon. I think I am at a point where I have my schedule worked out so I can start adding stuff back in.
Sunday – rest
We slept in a little after the wedding, and because of Daylight Saving Time. Unfortunately, we had a long drive home, so we loaded up on breakfast and started the drive northward. On the plus side, the weather was clear and there wasn’t any traffic, so it wasn’t too awful. We were all exhausted and went to bed pretty early.
Monday – 3.1 miles
It was a pretty day and I was excited for a run.
Afterwards, I did all the grocery shopping (blah) and took little man to karate. He is learning so many great things.
Tuesday – rest
After morning drop off, I headed to work.
It was a pretty great day, and it was nice to come home for a yummy dinner and more karate.
And a gratuitous pug shot.
This is the face I get when I don’t give her table scraps. Diva.
Wednesday – rest
After work, we all took a little break. Little man’s homework was done, so he went outside to ride bikes and play with his friends and we just enjoyed having nothing to do.
Thursday – rest
I spent the morning at school, finishing up some things for the run-a-thon. I had to hit the grocery store, and pick up a new sports bra for Saturday.
I ended up with this one, from Athleta.
It’s incredibly soft and comfortable, and I like the cutouts in the back.
I picked up little man from the bus stop – it was his last day of school before spring break – and we headed right back out for his baseball game. We got home very late and I was pretty happy to get to bed.
Friday – 2 miles
I was edgy and needed to stretch my legs in the worst way. Since school was out, so I went for a very quick run after little man’s breakfast, and then it was time to pick up some last minute things at the store and finish packing.
We met up with my parents at a fish camp and enjoyed a really nice lunch before kissing little man goodbye and heading to pick up our packets at the expo for the GATE River Run.
We browsed for a while and ran into a bunch of friends, which was nice. We picked up a few random things, and then checked into the Omni in Jacksonville.
After dinner, we enjoyed dinner and rented a movie in our room. So exciting.
Saturday – 9.45 miles
GATE River Run day! I was pretty excited for this one. Recap to come later this week! It was a tough race – very hot and humid – but I loved it.
It felt great having my miles up again, even if most of them did come from a 15K race. To the best of my knowledge, my next big race is a half marathon in September, although I do plan on some 5Ks and 10Ks between now and then.
My goals are going to be working on different terrains, as best I can, and doing a better job with my hydration and nutrition.
There are just a few more days to enter to win two entries to the 2015 March To Get Screened Run Walk 5K event. Don’t miss out on joining us for this wonderful race.
