Weekly run-down

Last week was finally a full week of running and getting to the gym. No snow, no ice, not much sunshine either. But hey, we need the rain. It’s sunny here today though!

I was very glad to get several days at the gym this week. It was Ally’s spring break so I took a few vacation days. We did a few projects at home, did a little shopping, saw McFarland USA (was soooo good!) I cried.

I painted and organized my pantry. It needed it badly. I should have painted it when we moved in last August but things were crazy and I was just ready to move in!

After (it looks a little better) At least the shelves are white now and not yellow.

Next up, I need to paint the kitchen chairs and I have a chair at my dressing table that needs paint and new fabric.

Ally is raising rabbits this year for her first (and probably last) 4-H project. We have less than 2 weeks to go before they go to auction. They are pretty cute but nasty little things too. They have made a mess in our garage! And they will scratch your arms up too.

I have Rock N’ Roll Dallas half coming up on Sunday. I’m getting excited!

What are you training for?

Working on any home projects?

Happy running!

I’m holding out hope that this week will be a regular run week for me. The last several weeks have been short because of weather. Texas has lost it!

weekly rundown

Training last week:

Sunday: 10 miles. This is a funny story. We ran at 4:30 in the afternoon!

Monday: Rest day

Tuesday: Track, 12×400 with 400 recovery. That’s 6 miles on the track with 1 mile warm up and 1 mile cool down.

Wednesday: Gym day

Thursday: Snow day.

Friday: Rest day.

Saturday: 11 miles

Thursday came with sleet and snow, lots more that we anticipated too. It melted pretty quickly but then left ice the next morning. Actually we had ice until Saturday morning on some roads. One of our girls fell on said ice. We were dodging quite a bit of it.

Last Sunday we ran in the afternoon because the week had been so crummy and Saturday was not an option still. For girls that never (unless racing) run in the daylight it was quite an experience. But not only that it was in the afternoon. We were a hot mess. We had so much fun though. I know people that saw us thought we were crazy. We probably are. We stated mostly in neighborhoods and on new sidewalks when available. We had to run a busy street though at the beginning and end, we got a few honks too.

It was cool and rainy. I like to run in the light rain, it’s kinda refreshing.

10 miles in the day

Here’s a few snow days pictures from last week. I laid down in the snow, that’s the outline of my mitten. It was pretty deep snow, there was ice under it. That’s how we roll here.

I think it might finally be gone. It’s Spring Break here this week. It’s raining today but supposed to be in the 60′s and 70′s the rest of the week. I’m so excited! Looking forward to at least 3 run days this week and 2-3 gym days.

I got a Tracer Vest last week. Our Running Center started stocking them. They light up a million ways. I’m surprised how light it is. I thought that battery pack would be heavy but it’s not. I ran with it Saturday and liked it. Of course I had 2 layers of clothes on. Hoping it will be comfortable this summer in a tank top too.

Did my first ever set of squats with the bar on my shoulders yesterday. I’m walking a little funny today.

I have Rock N Roll Dallas in 2 weeks! Still haven’t decided on a goal yet.

What are you training for?

Did you race this weekend?
