Oh, February. I do love this month, and I think it’s because my birthday kicks the whole thing off. When I think of February, I think of warm colors like red and pink, thanks to Valentine’s Day, which I also love because, hello, it’s February, and I love this month and chocolate! Also, hello to my intense usage of commas and run-on sentences. Anyway, back to February. Later after VDay, I will be celebrating the anniversary of my first date with my bf. Have you choked on the utter cheesiness of my love for this month?! There’s simply a lot of celebrating to be done. That is all. 🙂
Despite all the love and cake, the weather in Spain could be a little more cooperative. Does that pic to the left give you warm vibes? I have to hand it to her though, Spain’s weather is marvelous the rest of the year. But it has been simply shitty so many days the past couple weeks- something I am not used to! Yesterday I ran 10 miles through wind, rain, and sea spray, a new definition to Salty Running. I had my highest mileage week yet at 41 miles, and I’m officially a bottomless pit.
Week of 2.5-2.11
Sunday- 12 miles at 10:12 avg pace. This felt so good, I wanted to weep at it glory.
Monday- 5 easy miles at 10:40
Tuesday- 7 miles total. 3x 1-mile repeats at 7:45, 7:47, 7:44.
Wednesday- REST 😀
Thursday- 6 miles with 3 at tempo pace: 8:17, 8:06, 8:00. I have to say that I was really surprised with my speed work this week.
Friday- easy 5
Saturday- easy 6 at 10:14 pace
Total: 41 miles
