Good Sunday morning everyone,
I’m at work today so I will keep this short & sweet. This week was incredibly boring training wise.. As the weather really kept me from doing what I wanted!
This was the first week where my short runs during the week bumped up for 3 miles to 4 miles. Yikes! But, I was excited to see my training change a bit. Monday I did 4 miles on the treadmill & boy.. was that rough! 4 miles is about the longest I’ll ever be able to do on the mill, as it was incredibly boring & I hated it!
Thursday’s temps were below zero, & I was feeling under the weather all week. I’ve been chugging EmergenC like crazy, but I only did 2 miles on the treadmill instead of the 4 I was scheduled for. I didn’t want to push it.
Feeling better after chugging EmergenC for 2 or 3 days, I was ready to tackle my 5 mile long run yesterday. Well, womp womp. It snowed 5 or 6 inches ALL day long & our group long run was cancelled. I had a 5k race scheduled, but opted not to go since I am a ball of anxiety when traveling in the snow. I couldn’t even try & get a run in around the neighborhood, it was that bad outside. So, I did some Piyo & made sure I didn’t eat like crazy. That evening, I went out with some of my running friends to a comedy club & had a blast. I love those guys & am so thankful I met such great people.
I moved my long run to today after work & am meeting a friend to get miles in. My birthday is on Tuesday & I took the day off from work so I am able to play with my running schedule a little bit thankfully.
Before I end this, I wanted to show everyone what I got in my first Stridebox! It is subscription based, & every month you get a box full of running goodies. I am so looking forward to seeing what I get every month!
Those gloves have been my favorite part since I needed a new pair! The Picky Bar was delicious. It is all natural ingredients & everything in it is great for you. It is not a supplement.. It is just meant for before or after (or during) a run. I will not be partaking in the Chia Surge type of gu.. I don’t think my stomach would be a fan. I haven’t tried anything else except the lip balm.. Which is amazing, by the way! But am looking forward to try everything soon. I recommend stridebox to everyone who runs.. You get some pretty neat stuff for $15/month 🙂
Anyways.. Have a great week everyone & for all of us in the North East, let’s just hope we have decent weather so we can all get our runs in!
