Weekend was good. Had the last of the indoor field hockey season on Saturday – great, fast paced game. Supposedly outdoor starts next Sunday, but there will have to be A LOT of melting between now and then for the pitch (turf) to be ready for us to play on…right now it’s still under a few feet of snow!
Yesterday turned out to be beautiful (high in the high 40’s) but the morning was chilly with a biting wind…and Breaking Bad was calling my name…HARD. My training schedule had a 20k run…so I got on the ol’ treadmill with a plan to do 12.5 miles. But I realized that if I was going to do 12.5, I might as well just do 13.1 (the things that make sense to you when you’re running for miles and miles, going nowhere and watching meth being made! LOL
|Had a small barrier to deal with before my run could get started yesterday!|
|Half way through my 13.1mile treadmill run!|
Anyway, it felt great and am super stoked! 4 weeks until the actual half marathon – feel that I’m in good shape!
Had a great lunch with some close girlfriends – Stephanie and Melanie – who I have run with for years. Stephanie moved to Switzerland 2 years ago and has just moved back – SO HAPPY TO HAVE HER BACK. So we had lunch at Mel’s house…fresh bagels (still steaming), cream cheese, fresh fruit salad, bacon and mimosas!! What could be better??
|So fresh & hot that I had to leave the bag open for them to breathe!|
And then to top it all off…by the afternoon it was warm enough to have my sunroof open!! Amazing!!
This morning, because I wasn’t running, I had more time to take the dog for a walk. I love walking with her early in the morning and today we were able to be out for an hour as the sun was rising. It was beautiful.
|Perfect way to start the day.|
Can’t wait to run tomorrow!! 🙂
