Happy Monday everyone! Today is not a day off for me, but I know it is for a lot of you. I hope you enjoy your day off if you do! I’m here for another recap of my last week, Week 7 of training. I am very close to being done with this training, only about 6 weeks to go until race day.
We have had some absolutely beautiful spring weather & I’m really excited about it. I’m hoping it stays this way for Saturday’s Spring Thaw 10 mile race!
Sunday – I ran just about 6 miles with Jennifer & Joanna. I’ve been spending a couple Sundays with them during training & I’m really enjoying it! I can’t say I get these miles in if it wasn’t for them. It was SO warm this day. I could have worn a tank top & shorts. We were absolutely sweating by the end. I struggled a lot towards the end, it ended up being pretty humid.
Monday – I hit up EFX at FASTER for the first time in 2 weeks! 2 weeks is way too long without it. I love feeling myself getting stronger, so I really try not to skip it!
Tuesday + Wednesday – Class
Thursday – I ended up having a super stressful day. Anxiety, frustration, just an overall not great day. I came home & did some yoga & tried to meditate on it & hoped I’d feel better by the next day.
Friday – My mom came in a week early to celebrate my birthday with me. We had dinner at Primantis & she let me open up a gift. It was a really pretty sign to hang on my wall. And I loved the bow so much I had to take a picture of it!
Saturday – In the morning I got up & went out with my usual Pro Bike + Run group. We got in just about 6 miles. I wanted to do 8, but I forgot to bring myself fuel (because I was staying at my mom’s hotel) & so I just decided to cut it short. Again, super warm & nice in the sun!
My Mom & I did a lot of shopping & in the evening we headed to the Walnut Grill in Robinson for dinner. I had never been to this location, but had been to one around here & I knew the food was good. It was also National Wine Day, so I had to get a glass! I had a glass of Narcisi Peach (local winery here) & it was delicious! For dinner I had parmesan crusted chicken with gnocchi. YUM! For dessert, I had to get cheesecake because let’s be real… this is why I run 🙂
I had a really nice time with my Mom & I feel I had a decent fitness week. Most of my running is done over Saturdays + Sundays because that is what works best with my current schedule, but I end up getting in some quality miles over the weekends.
How is your training going? What race are you training for?
