Today is February 9th, and I feel like February is already flying right by. Which is GREAT because that means that it is almost March and March is GREAT because it’s daylight savings time AND spring begins. So there is THAT to keep your excitement levels up!! My amazing girlfriend sent me this on Friday night and it pretty much made my night…
So this was as of Friday, minus 3 days from each…so 26, 39, 64, 71…. YESSSSSSSS. I hate to wish my life away but MAN I have no recent memory of being stuck in the house like I have been lately. It’s really starting to mess with my brain. Blaaaa. I have all this awesome winter gear that I’m not using because it’s just not that safe to be outside running. Plows can’t scrape away the snow at the rate its coming!
I like to torture myself and I made my husband drive by my one of my happy places on our way home Sunday night…the track was buried under. The top is Sunday, the bottom is from sometime over the summer of 2014. I like the bottom view best.
Where is the track? Oh thats right, you can’t see it because there is SO MUCH SNOW. GAH….
Mileage totals for the week..
This was my first week of a 3 week taper for Hyannis (Feb 22). I would say that all of my runs were fairly decent, but I can’t shake the feeling of being nervous at this point. I have a big goal, and I wish that I was spending more time outside hitting these paces& totals instead of hitting them on the treadmill. I miss outdoor tempos. I REALLY miss my long run route…its funny how certain roads can make you feel “at home” in your running. My favorite 20 mile route has my little sister’s house at mile 12. I love that she is about half way, and if I needed her (or the convenience of her house!) she or my awesome BIL would be right there. I miss that. Ok, I’m getting sad again…MOVING ON!! 39 days! #ICANDOHARDTHINGS.One of my warm weather friends-please send some sunshine love my way, please and thank you!
Monday-off..squats, planks and ab video
Tuesday– Easy run, 8 miles-7:43 avg pace
Wednesday– Workout of 2 x 2 mile repeats with repeats @ 6:40, with a mile between each, w/u& c/d of 2 miles each, 9 miles total, 7:20 avg pace.
Thursday– Easy run, 8 miles
Saturday-15 miles, 3 mile w/u, 10 miles @ GMP, 2 mile c/d.
Sunday-6 miles easy.
46 miles total, 7:36 avg pace, 5:59:52 hours running.
It’s kind of ironic that i only actually spent 6 hours running because I definitely spent a lot more time THINKING about these runs! Well, maybe not the easy runs, but definitely the workouts and the long run!
OK…..I Know what you’re all waiting for! The winner of the BrightLife Go Compression socks is…
Has anybody (in the cold weather regions) been able to get themselves outside lately in this weather?
How much snow do you have?
-About a million feet. A million.
