Weekly Roundup 4.18-4.24

Week 7 of 12

What a week!  You can’t beat the motivation that comes from Marathon Monday and I am so proud of all my friends that ran!  I worked a split shift and it allowed me to get home in time to see the winners cross the finish line.  Then I spent the most of the afternoon outside playing with Georgie, refreshing the Boston Marathon app almost obsessively and I even snuck in a speed workout.  I feel guilty saying that I was supposed to run 6 half mile repeats but ended up only doing 4.  Man, it was warm out.  I was dehydrated and was feeling clammy with chills by the 3rd repeat so after the 4th I knew I had to call it a day.

Tuesday was my 20th Run Club since the rewards program started so I got a $15 Marathon Sports gift certificate and then on Wednesday I skipped my run to try out the NormaTec Recovery System.  My boss Joe bought a pair of these recovery boots at the Boston Marathon expo for patients and staff.  I am so pumped to have them available for the next few weeks before the Buffalo Half Marathon and looking ahead to Miami Marathon training.  THANK YOU JOE!

Then there was Friday.  I almost killed Georgie, hehe.  We ran 3 miles in the morning and then walked 3 miles in the afternoon with some Mashpee Fitness ladies.  Her precious little legs were tired and she slept the rest of the day!  I already blogged about our Friday morning run at the beach.  If you missed it, check it:

I pretty much stuck to my plan for Saturday’s 10k.  The goal was sub-7:00 pace.  I felt good and went a little faster but overall finished smiling with gas left in the tank.  The race was a good test of my fitness and a big confidence booster heading into the Buffalo Half Marathon.
