Hello! I hope all of you are having a great weekend. I have been home at my parents’ for a few days enjoying some relaxation with a few good workouts mixed in.
Yesterday my dad and I participated in a Spin-A-Thon at our local YMCA. The Mission in Motion was part of a fundraiser to benefit cancer survivors through the Livestrong Organization. My dad is a regular at the YMCA spin classes and asked if I would participate on his team The Gladiators, so of course I said yes.
The class was great and I even got a few new ideas for my own spin class that I might try out this week. It was so nice to see people of all ages and many families out supporting the cause.
The rest of the day involved a lot of relaxing, which Lola was pretty psyched about…
One of my best friends since second grade, Michelle, came over to make dinner which was just what I needed after a busy week. Relaxing and cooking at home is seriously the best way to spend some weekend nights.
Today, I had my weekly long run scheduled. My goal was 14 miles around marathon pace with a fast finish. I have been working to hit the low 30s for weekly mileage as I attempt to re-build my base. In three weeks I will be running a half marathon with my uncle, so I am trying to get ready for that. Although I don’t plan to fully race that event I do want find my baseline before another half at the end of May.
Today ended up being a beautiful day and the run was going pretty well miles 1 through 7. However, my foot was a little sore and my knee was bugging me a bit, so I decided to stick with 12 miles. That still put me in the 33 range for the week.
