I had a few new fun things to try out this week. The Brooks Ravennas that I ordered finally arrived and I’m loving them so far! New shoes rock!
Overall it wasn’t the best week but I made it through. The warmer temperatures are definitely helping!
Monday- 3 miles on the treadmill. This would normally be my rest day but I decided to switch it out with Tuesday. I wanted to run outside but it felt pretty chilly and windy, and honestly I just didn’t feel like dealing with it.
Tuesday- Rest day. I had a hair appointment and since I hardly ever get my hair done I’m not usually in a rush to mess it up.
Wednesday- 6 miles @ 9:30 pace. It was a nice 54 degrees! Spring seems to finally be here and this was my first run in my new shoes.
Thursday- 3 miles @ 10:30 pace + deep water running. It was a beautiful day at almost 60 degrees but still pretty windy. I had the day off so I spent it with my daughter. I took her out for a run for the first time in months since it’s been so cold. I forgot just how much harder it is pushing her in the stroller while running and she has only gotten bigger since the last time. I had hoped to get in 5 miles but Haylie was getting impatient with me and not really enjoying it so I called it quits after 3 miles. I wanted her to have a good time too. So we walked around a bit and looked at duckies and turtles then went to lunch at First Watch. She is growing up so fast and wants to be independent now.
Usually I run with Fleet Feet on Thursdays but one of the moms from my MRTT group had organized a deep water running class so I thought that might be nice change of pace. I had a good time and the other moms are always so nice. I might experiment more with this in the future.
Friday- Rest day.
Saturday-6 miles @ 9:45 pace. It was 48 degrees but that wind was rough. It seemed that no matter which way I ran, I was running directly into the wind. I had planned to get 10 miles in today but that wind was killing me. I kind of wished that I had stuck it out but I know that I can run the 10 miles next weekend. I didn’t want to risk getting sick or anything. I am loving my new headband from FleurtyBands! It’s super cute and stays in place.
Later we went to a little Easter egg hunt at the high school by our house. Haylie was a pro!
Sunday- Orange Theory. It was strength day, so there was a lot of running uphill on the treadmill and heavy weight lifting. It was a good workout and I’m sure my arms will be sore tomorrow.
Have a wonderful week!
