Running On Average

Workout Recap

Happy Monday! Who’s ready to get out there and seize the week?

Or who wants to teach my daughter that naps are still cool? Please!

This past week was surprisingly pretty successful workout wise.

On Tuesday, I went to BodyFlow and stretched out everything. Also did a pretty killer ab session. I’m piss-poor at planks when you start adding variations like reaching your hands out to the front then sides or going from elbow to palms and back again. Holy mackeral does that get hard. I had to do them from my knees, which disappoints me a bit. Whomp whomp.

Wednesday I rested because the weather was beautiful and I wanted to relax with Dave and Riley since Monday and Tuesday nights were busy. Then on Thursday night I did a hilly 8-mile run. It was hard, but amaaaazing. Dusk is my favorite time to run. The cool hue of the setting sun and the smell of cut grass. The distant sounds of high school sports and the hush as families go about their evenings. Perfection.

The Worst Blogger in the History of Ever

Well hello there. Long time, no see. And Happy Hump Day!

So I suck at blogging regularly. I really need to create a blogging schedule. Do people do that? Is that normal? I need to get on it.

Roo is taking a nap right now (for who knows how long. 40 minutes? 4 hours? That girl is unpredictable) so I am taking advantage of the clean laundry, kitchen and dishes to write a bit. Woo!

I am now 10 days out from the Pittsburgh Half Marathon and all I can say is Surprised smile. I have one 10-miler, one 11-miler and one 15-mile run under my belt and am aiming to do 16ish-18ish this weekend. I know, I know, I should be tapering for the half, but I’m mainly training for Hatfield McCoy in June so Pittsburgh is just going to be another training run (with 5 additional miles afterward. I hope).
