Week 5 (01/29-02/04):
This week was better in terms of running but was a complete fail in the cross training part of life. I had a houseful of sick kids all week and it made life just a little more hectic. It also took its toll on our eating habits. Meals weren’t as consistent as usual. Sunday: REST. Today Kevin and I took the kids roller skating. This was his FIRST time ever on skates and I should have taken pictures but I did not. I just focused on us all having a good time!
Monday: 5 with Nikia and Ellen. It was nice and cool out and we just headed out for an easy run. I felt really good during this run which was nice to finally have happen on a ‘longer’ run. 🙂
Tuesday: REST. Diggs had another wrestling meet so I spent my evening sitting in bleachers.
Wednesday: REST. Sick kids is really taking its toll at this point.
Thursday: 4.03 miles with Ellen. It was only 11 out but we had a great run. The roads were dry and we kept a pretty decent pace considering neither of us has worked on any speed.
Friday: 4 miles with Dare. This kid kicks my butt every time we run together. I didn’t realize at all how fast we were going until we got done. He pushed me to be comfortable at 9:25. We talked the entire time and I am thankful to have him to run with. Since my running has been somewhat absent this was a nice surprise. I am glad things come back after a break from running fairly quickly!!
Saturday: 6.23 miles. Dare and I ran to the middle school and met up with a couple of ladies. We took them on a 4 mile loop he and I love due to the hills it has. We had a great time with awesome conversation. Some days easy group runs are needed!!
19.29 miles total. Much better week in terms of running and pretty pain free!! I slacked big time with cross training but having the kids home sick was just not helping life. 🙂
