Weekly Roundup 3.27-4.2

 
Didn’t I just write one of these weekly roundups?  Man time flies.

This week started with a treadmill run.  Blah.  But I did have some company!  Lee was getting in some after work steps next to me and Kendra jumped on to join us for a mile.  


Now that spring is here I started working Run Club into my weekly mileage but of course it rained because it was Tuesday.  I took advantage of a nice(r) day on Wednesday and went the extra mile to make it 7 miles for the day.  I threw in 3 miles of a non-aggressive Fartlek to get the legs turning over.  With more rain in the forecast for the weekend and some mileage to make up from Tuesday, I got Georgie out for a mile Thursday morning.  It was… ok.  She’s still being difficult.


On Friday I met up with Matt for 10 miles through New Seabury.  His goal was 7:45 pace.  I knew I could do that no problem but heavy legs and a hilly course wore me down.  We ended up averaging 7:43s and got caught in some rain/wintry mix during the second half of the run.


The rain didn’t stop until Sunday so Saturday I took my run to the treadmill and hopped in the pool for my second lap swimming session of the year!  Last time I made it 50 laps in 35 minutes so this time I had a goal of swimming 60 laps—which ended up being 35 minutes!

Other highlights:

·      I was named a BibRave Pro Captain!  We had our first captain’s Google Hangout last week and I was sent a pretty sweet captain’s package.  It actually arrived on my birthday (perfect timing) but I didn’t want to share and ruin the surprise for our overseas captain! Thank you BibRave!!


·      Speaking of BibRave… I received my latest product to test and review: the Eagle Creek Pack-It Sport Active Set!  The set features the Wet Dry Locker and a Shoe Locker.  I was hoping for the Tennis Ball/Black color but received the black on black for some all black errthing.
