It was a good week - family wise, running wise. This is going to be an all over the place post so I'm doing bullets.
- Thank you Mama Simmons for the snugglie for the stroller to keep Nick nice and warm and in place!! This is going to be so helpful. Picture to come next walk/run.
- My running mentor and one of my best friends came to visit this weekend - Nicole. She swam throughout high school and college and decided to get into running post college. She ran a marathon, which inspired me to try out running. I attribute my start to running to her - and now I don't know what I'd do without it. So thank you Nic! Nicole finished the Chicago Marathon that year of intense heat and is super fast. She is an amazing runner that can go out into the wee hours of the night and then go run a PR! :) I admire her running and adventures. And - she just happens to be one of the most thoughtful and level headed people that I know. She also doubles as my psychologist. Don't you love friends like that?
- Runners World Log - you know how they list your monthly mileage? Is there a way to get back to a month not listed there, say last year - besides looking at the bar graph? What other logs do you use ? I like the runners world one - how it has a place for shoes also. Let me know what you are using and what you think.
- I'm thinking of doing my long run on Friday incase we go to the beach on Sat for the weekend to catch a break and have some family time :) . Anyone out there going to do one on Friday between 9 - 10 min miles? I was just thinking that in my head.. and then, Yea, I just realized it all depends on the weather and if I can get someone to watch the baby... maybe I'll be doing it on the treadmill. Is there a site where you can find people doing long runs locally (when/where)? That might be cool.
Today's recovery run was 4.4 miles/43 minutes. Hope to stretch out and make it to yoga tomorrow!
This weeks mileage was 33 miles :) I'd like to build up to 40-45(?) by April 1.
Mileage for Feb: 72.5 miles - oh man! probably the first month in a super long time I didn't make it to 100! But for a good reason that I would never trade!
