Well, this was a week that I really pulled up my big girl panties for a couple of runs!
Monday – An easy 4 miles. Nothing unusual. Just a nice rest day run.
Tuesday – 16 miles for long run day. Normally I’m at Mom’s on Tuesday but I had just taken her back to her house over the weekend. So, changed up my long run to today. A little chilly – but, the run felt great! Afterwards, went by the DQ and had Hubby fix me some lunch!
Wednesday – 5 mile recovery run. Another run that was pretty normal. And nice and easy.
Thursday – Easy 4 mile rest day. Pretty cold, but run felt great!
Friday – A frigid 6 miles. One of those days that I normally would have hit the treadmill. But, I decided to pull on a new pair of shoes and hit the road. You know you always feel better when you do. But, it did take a couple of miles to warm up and for my fingers to not be frozen. But, a nice run with some hill repeats.
Saturday – 7 miles in 38 degrees and raining. The run felt great – but, there were a couple of times when I was wondering why I wasn’t on my nice, dry treadmill. Even the ducks were taking cover! I ran under an overpass and the ducks were there, also. Yeah, I was in the rain and the ducks were out of the rain. Oh, well. This was one of those runs that I was really proud of myself when I was done!
It was a good week of running. No glitches – new shoes – 45 miles. How was your week?
