You GUYS – I ran outside 3.5 times last week!!! That is 3.5 more times than I’ve been running. And it makes me so happy!!!
Anyway, here’s a little recap of how last week’s runs went:
Week of 3/13: 21.59 miles running/walking
Sunday: 0 miles
Took the day off after the Malachi Church Run.
Monday: 6.17 miles total – run in the AM AND PM.
I wasn’t planning on running in the AM that day, but for some reason I couldn’t sleep. I woke up at 3 a.m. and was unable to get back to bed, so after cleaning my closet and semi cleaning the kitchen, I opted to head outside in the 50 degree (near perfect running temps) and get in about 2 miles before hitting the gym. And then that night was the Cleveland Marathon Fleet Feet Pub Run – an event I had already planned on attending – so there were another 3.8 miles run outside with tons of other runners, including B and Mary, for free beer! (I obviously didn’t partake in the beer)
Tuesday: no run, just elliptical. My feet were hurting and legs were tired.
Wednesday: 1.3 miles before the elliptical. Tired legs AGAIN.
Thursday: 4.62 miles. OUTSIDE before work!
It’s not often I get an outdoor run in, but I was happy to get in a run before St. Patrick’s Day. I was planning on running around downtown and seeing if people were out and about – and they already were!
Friday: 5 miles walk and run.
I decided to run for time and not for distance today. It’s something I’m not good at doing and I wanted to walk/run on the treadmill. So I focused on just keeping up the workout and varied on my speeds.
Saturday: 4.5 miles OUTSIDE again!
And that was it! Another so-so week of running – but a great week of pregnancy runs in my book for this Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon Ambassador. Woop woop!
Some questions for you:
- What Amazon Prime videos or TV shows are you digging that I should watch while running?
- Do you prefer running in the a.m. or p.m.? AM. Always. I hate and hardly ever run after work unless I have an event (like the pub run).
