This week was an odd one.
Still dealing with the current events everywhere, got my butt back on the training wagon, oh and I said goodbye to my office of 13 months. Like I said it was odd.
But my favorite Mexican restaurant opened for dine in service and I’ve already been twice. So good and still social distancing. Plus supporting local.
I moved my 1st training run to Monday as that fit my schedule better. Actually I almost didn’t run. I didn’t change at work and headed home because we ran late. However, once I got home I said screw it, changed and ran out the door. I kept it slow and easy as it was my first real run in over a week and it was kind of awesome. 3.1 miles
I had a real life doctor’s appointment out of town on Tuesday. People!
Plan called for a rest/recovery day on Wednesday and I took it. I had started packing at work and was realizing how much of a hoarder I am. Yikes. My goal was to only need 3 boxes to get me to the other office. Oh, and I had to eat all the food I had stashed in the fridge.
Thursday was meant to be run right after work but as I was changing, I realized that I forgot my shoes. Doh! So I headed home. Grabbed my shoes and again ran out the door. This run was slower than Monday’s as it was around 90* but it was still ok. I was a little warm by the end though. Ha! 3ish miles
Friday was my last day at work, and it was bittersweet. I am sad to go but looking forward to the chance as well. My coworkers brought donuts and flowers for me. I will miss them. And my 3 box goal failed- it took 5, 3 boxes and 2 bags. I then dropped my stuff off at the new office so I wasn’t holding on to it all weekend and headed home for a much needed, hopefully chill 3 days off.
Saturday dawned with a very rare occurrence- I was the only person in my house. Score! I slept in and went for a mid morning long run. I had pushed the run up from Sunday due to predicted heat wave coming. 70 felt great at the beginning of my run but toasted me by the end. And I only ran 5 miles– hah! They were pretty steady paced though and I had the chance to run the river path after a few months.
Then it was a weekend of relaxing and laundry and possibly watching too many Marvel movies. My favorite restaurant may be open but I’m not going to go crazy and do all the things- I still chilled at home.
11.3 miles for the week. Small but I hit all the key points of my training plan. Onward and upward!
