So uhhh… I went a little over 50 miles this week.
Monday– It was a holiday here in BC, so I met Lora at 7am and we did 10 miles together. The cold wind kicked us in the face for the first 5 miles but then carried us back to our cars for the 5 back in. Later on, Andrew and I registered for a half marathon in Arizona on April 9th and booked flights for the 2 of us to go down there for 3 nights! We did a celebratory 5 miler once Callum went to bed.
Tuesday– I got up early and ran 5 slow miles outside, and it was gorgeous! I got to see the sun rise. Yippee! And then I ran 4 miles on the treadmill later on: .5 mile up, 3 miles at 6:40 min/miles (it felt tough today) and then .5 mile down.
Wednesday– I ran 6 miles on the treadmill in the morning, and then 5 miles with Andrew at night after Callum went to bed!
Thursday– I pushed Callum in the stroller in the rain for 5 miles and then, much to my surprise, he asked to go to sleep in the afternoon so while he napped, I ran 5 more miles on the treadmill! And yes, I’ve been keeping up with my strength work!
Friday– It was tough to keep it at 6 but I knew I’d be running long tomorrow morning with Lora. I think we’re planning for 12 or 13 miles.
Saturday– Just like the good ol’ days. Lora and I met at 7am and ran 12 miles at an 8 min/mile pace and literally talked the entire time. We finished the run and we barely remembered even running. The weather was overcast but not freezing and there was no wind. PERFECT.
Sunday– Thought about doing a 30 miler but ended up with 7. I might do more later.
