**I’ve done a couple of these posts back when there was a SOC Sunday to link up with. Figured today was as good as any to just post what came to mind first!
It’s been a week. I don’t even know why it’s been “a week.” I’m physically exhausted and I’m hoping (praying) that this weekend brings some much-needed rest and relaxation. And maybe a movie date with my husband.
Remember when I signed up for two half marathons before the year even started? This was going to be my year of the half marathon. My goal was to run 3 half marathons. One of my half marathons has been canceled. I’m truly sad. It was the September race, and my husband had paid for my registration as a Christmas gift.
I received an email yesterday about a 10k that I ran a few years ago. It’s coming up next month, and I’m tempted to sign up for it. Then there’s a possibility that I’m going to run a 10k in April. So maybe this is the year of the 10k, rather than the half marathon?
I’ve been doing the elliptical most of this week as my primary workout. I have no idea if it’s going to help with my running, but I know my heel doesn’t hurt now (it was pretty sore from treadmill and elliptical last Friday.) And my quads definitely feel a little stronger. I’ve been able to increase my distance (strides) in the same amount of time, with each day that I’ve done the elliptical machine this week. So hopefully it’ll help with my running?
It was -2 degrees when I drove to work this morning. I will not be running outside in those kinds of temperatures. I do not need to run in anything below zero.
My college cross country coach invited me to join the team at practice one day. He recommended their “easy” day, which is probably my hard day. It should be fun, and I hope I can do it sometime this spring.
I saw this on Facebook. It’s so true.
Interesting how my stream of consciousness pulled me back to running.
