What a fun week for running! I was NOT in the mood to run on Monday and on Tuesday I had to work late (holler for overtime this week!) so I had to miss Run Club but Wednesday was National Running Day and jump started the rest of my week!
I really wanted to… correction: I HAD to get out the door on Wednesday for a run but I didn’t know when I’d be able to. The only logistical solution was to take G for a mile trot on my lunch break! I don’t think she was too happy to break our normal lunch break routine but we had to do it! CCR polo and all! :)
Also National Running Day was the start of Open Registration for the Houston Marathon and Half Marathon. I was SOOOOO happy when my dad emailed me saying he registered for the half and then a few minutes later, my cousin Michele announced on Instagram and tweeted out that she also registered—it will be her first half marathon! I’M SO EXCITED!
In case you missed it, I recently wrote a blog post for beginners…
Thursday morning I tested my speed for the first time this year with 4x half mile repeats during my 5 mile run. They went surprisingly well on a humid morning. The last repeat was a bit of a strugglefest but I held on and finished strong. Man I love running fast! I missed my long run on Saturday as I wasn’t feeling so hot. Instead I cruised through one of my favorite loops from my parents house after work about 30 seconds faster per mile than I wanted. Oops! I’ll take it.
