Weekly Roundup 2.5-2.11

Week 7 of 16

“I’m on the right track baby, I was born to be brave.”

Week 7 was a little bit of a struggle for me.  I have been experiencing pain in my jaw and it has been keeping me up at night, which definitely effects me both physically and mentally.  It certainly wasn’t my best training week but I got the job done.

I had a little setback on Monday morning but a lunch break chat with my girl Katrina helped put my head back on straight.  I was dragging my feet that afternoon, not in the mood to run then was pushed out the door by Joe who basically told me to suck it up and go outside.  It was cool and windy but getting out was exactly what I needed.  #runningisfreetherapy

I made it to Run Club on Tuesday then got in a good lift session on Wednesday afternoon with my crew Erin and Craig.  They both showed up at the gym on Friday afternoon too—teamwork!

G ran with me on both Thursday and Friday morning and I followed that up with another 5.5 miles on my own.  It was nice that I was able to run outside all week!  No treadmill!  Yeah!

Saturday was long run day with *only* 12 miles on the schedule.  I had plans to meet Lizzie for lunch in Plymouth so I got out a little earlier than normal—and by that I mean 10am.  Ha.  My dad called last minute to see if I wanted company so that was nice.  He came to my house and we ran/biked Cotuit.  Those roads were all new to him so it was fun to show him all my favorite roads and rest stops.

My run itself was tough.  I was tired and my legs felt heavy.  Every step felt like work… but lunch later that day was great!

Other highlights:

·      I got my Boston Marathon Celebration Jacket!  I tried it on to make sure it fit then I tucked it away in my closet until April 16th… eeeeeeek!
