I'm glad that I have the weekly wrap to document my week because by the time Friday comes around I rarely remember what happened on Monday.
Sunday: I continued my "Bridge Run" on the iFit treadmill program. I finished the Golden Gate bridge (which I didn't realize was so steep. It had me at a incline of 10, which is the highest one on my TM.) After that I also ran the Brooklyn Bridge.
Monday: I had a meeting after work and then a dentist appointment. It was beautiful out so I was bummed that I wasn't able to get outside for a run.
Tuesday: I did more of the Bridge work out but this time I biked it. I did the Akashi Kaiko bridge (Japan) and the Sydney Harbor bridge (Australia). These rides were tough!
Wednesday: I had an awesome day on Wednesday! I've been stuck in my 6 mile rut because honestly that's all the more I could usually fit in before it got dark. This day I got 7 miles in!!! The first mile was so tough and my calf was SO tight that I thought I was going to have to walk back to my car. As I kept going I felt better. By the time I was done, I felt awesome and could have probably tackled another mile or two. As I was running by, I saw one of my friends at the gym so decided to head in after my 7 miles.
Thursday: After yesterday's Spring like run, today we had a snow day. We've had delays earlier this year due to ice and sleet but this was our first "official" snow day. Even though I'm looking forward to spring, it IS always fun to have a snow day. I would kind of be sad if we went all winter and didn't have the excitement of looking forward to one. It makes me not feel so bad about accomplishing NOTHING all day long. It's funny though because as I watch the news, they are interviewing people about the snow. It's like HELLO, it's not unusual for us to get snow, yet people act like it's an anomaly. (They'll do the same thing this summer when its 90 degrees!)
Friday: Gym day
Saturday: I had another awesome run. The sun was out in full force so I set out to do 10 miles on the trail, but after seeing some slushy spots decided to deviate to the neighborhood. I ran a LOT of hills. This was a great challenge for me and I'm glad I did it. This was my highest mileage since the Wine n Dine Half marathon at Disney back in November. I actually wasn't as sore afterwards as I thought I would be.
I also received all the shoes I ordered last week so hopefully I'll be able to share a little bit about those later.
Have a great week folks! -M
We will be linking up with Hoho Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for the Weekly Wrap.
