So, I’ve been a little MIA with the training posts lately, but, not to worry, I’m still alive and kicking! The last few weeks have kicked my butt with work-related events (including a 24-hour event last weekend) and wedding preparation, but I’ve still managed to get in most of my runs. The “spring” weather hasn’t been a big motivator, but, this Saturday gave some light at the end of the tunnel with the thermometer reaching 60 degrees! My typical spring races have been put on the back burner due to bridal showers, bachelorette parties (next weekend!) and other friend’s weddings. My next race on tap is the Capital City Half Marathon on May 4th, and I’m really looking forward to competing again! It’s been a while. Through it all, running is my sanity…
[pullquote][/pullquote]”We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves…The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom. No one can say, ‘You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that.’ The human spirit is indomitable.”
-Sir Roger Bannister, first runner to run a sub-4 minute mile
Here’s what my week looked like:
Sunday: Bridal shower up in Cleveland (snuck in an easy 3 before the trip)
Monday: 3 miles (still recovering from not sleeping this weekend…so, taking it easy)
Tuesday: 5 miles
Wednesday: 3 miles
Thursday: 6 miles
Friday: 3 miles
Saturday: 8 miles
Sunday: 5 miles…HAPPY EASTER!!
Total = 36 miles and feeling super sleepy.
