As I write this, we are officially on Spring Break, and I have never been more ready. Honestly, Spring Break has always been more about downtime for us, so I don’t have any huge plans. I am very ok with this.
- Cardio: Raptor Run 3k
Even though I had the Gate River Run the day before, I couldn’t miss out on the Raptor Run. It’s a 3K. Totally doable. I was tired, and I speed walked with a friend, but the point was showing up for a great cause. Misson accomplished.
We got breakfast with friends, and then came home. To be honest, I was pretty wrecked after the weekend, so just lounged around the rest of the day.
- Cardio: 4.45 miles, walking
I had already decided this was going to be a walking day. Recovery, or something.
And then i stepped up my game by visiting the Stretch Zone for an assisted stretch. It was my first time trying something like this and I didn’t hate it. The owner, who did my analysis, said I actually had great range of motion, which I loved to hear. But I will be scheduling another appointment soon, because it was really great for my hips.
- Cardio: 3 miles running + 2.05 miles, walking
I felt good enough to attempt a run, and it didn’t feel awful. I was glad for that.
I had errands to run, and a big meeting in the evening, so it was definitely a long day.
- 3.35 miles, walking
Wednesday was a packed day. I started with my walk.
And then i hustled out – I had a photo shoot at a local boutique hotel, followed by lots of trekking around to some different sites in town. Best news, I had some amazing pizza. It’s been literally foreeeeevvvvver.
Happy birthday to sweet Luna who turned three!
- Cardio: 4.75 miles, walking
Ugh! Another busy day!
After my walk, I had a meeting, and then an appointment with the dreaded dentist. Oh, it was terrifying. As I’ve mentioned, with Mr PugRunner’s current situation, I have been more mindful about making (and keeping) my wellness appointments. The dentist is an awful one for me, but I went, and held it together. My hygienist was super kind, and the dentist on duty was lovely (there is another one there I really don’t love). No cavities, and the only recommendation was for me to switch to an electric toothbrush. Done.
It was the last day of school before Spring Break, but we did have one last marching band meeting to announce all the details for next year’s show. It’s going to be so exciting and I can’t wait!
- Cardio: 5.5 miles, running + 1.59 miles, walking
Back in a groove? I would say so?
I rested most of the day. It seemed the right thing to do.
Flat runner ready. Just in case.
Cardio: 5 miles, walking
A and I were supposed to go for a long hike this morning, but things got turned around, and so we had to bail on that. Tomorrow is another day.
My parents came over for a late lunch and it was nice to see them.
Goal-getting + Thoughts
I am finally starting to feel a lot better, which is good news. I have a new running plan in the works set up to start next weekend, and things are just moving along, as they do.
Here’s hoping Spring Break goes nicely. I’ve got a few days of work, and then a few days of just chilling out and following my joy, so I’m looking very forward to that.
How was your week in training? Do you ever feel like the hits just keep coming?
