Mother’s Day Weekend Recap

Hi All!  I just had the best weekend!  We were go, go, go the whole time!  And I loved it!  We spent the weekend with family and ate a lot of great food.  I didn’t take a lot of pictures because I wanted to just enjoy my time with everyone instead of having to try and get pictures.  Here’s what we did. more “Mother’s Day Weekend Recap”

Dog Walking, Running, and a Race

Happy Mother’s Day!  I hope you all had a great week!  This was week two after my marathon and it was pretty laid back.  I had a 5K on Saturday, so I made sure to get in a few runs.  But, I didn’t pressure myself to do it.  I want to get back to where I want to run and am running because I enjoy it.  Towards the end of training I was dreading runs, and honestly didn’t want to do them.  I had to force myself to put my shoes on and get out the door.  This week I felt so much better about them.  I am also trying to build up Jake’s mileage.  I want him to be able to run 3 miles with me.  But, I don’t want to overdo it.  He’s pretty good about going 2 miles if it’s not too hot.  And, since I wasn’t running enormous amounts of miles, I had a lot more energy for other workouts.  Here’s what my week looked like. more “Dog Walking, Running, and a Race”

A Three Day Weekend!

Hello Everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  I’m going to catch you up on what I did this weekend.   This was the first weekend in a long time that I actually got to sleep in, and didn’t have to get up early to run.  It was very relaxing!  This was also the first weekend in a long time that we didn’t have anywhere to go, or really anything to do.  We just kind of played it by ear!  more “A Three Day Weekend!”

Weekly Wrap: The Calm After the Race

Hi Everyone!  Happy May!  This week was the first week after my first marathon.  It was not at all like I expected it to be.  I really thought that I would be sore and miserable for several days.  But I wasn’t.  I also thought that I wouldn’t be able to run for a long time.  But I did!  I was actually surprised at how good I felt after the race.  It was kind of a lazy week, but I thought I deserved that after the crazy amount of training I’d been doing.   Here’s what I was up to this week.   more “Weekly Wrap: The Calm After the Race”
