I have so many things that have happened since I last posted that I wanted to write about & now I can’t remember! I’ll just work backwards & hope for the best. Had a GREAT run this morning – was aiming for only 30 minutes because I had to go soak up the Son at Adoration Chapel at my son’s high school. I averaged 8:28 miles, which made me happy, especially after attempting the workout listed in “Run Like a Mother” book…which I’ll include the link to one day when I learn how to include links!! Anywho, there is this amazing full page workout in there & I was intrigued by it & tried it. I love a lengthy recipe, too, so I guess it figures. The workout yesterday started with a 2 mile run, followed by a 400m 5K pace lap & then lots of other goodies – crunshes, squats, chin-ups…everything you can think of to get moving! It was great. I capped it off with a 1 mile run on my treadmill. Ordinarily, I don’t like to mix my workouts like that – if I’m going to run, I wanna run. If I’m doing weights & such, then that’s it.
I purchased some new kicks yesterday! My Brooks were bought in December & I was just feeling this muscle ache in my right leg & I knew it was time to get some new ones – I am trying Mizuno – never tried them before. I’m usually into Asics & Brooks, but I liked the way these felt in the store. They are the Wave 13 model & I really enjoyed them on my run. I’m trying to plan the rest of my week – that’s really code for trying to fit my runs in – I have a ceiling guy coming in the morning, a meeting at 10 at my girls’ school, so I guess I’ll run after that. I planned on Mass at the high school, but I’m assuming the ceiling dude will cut right into that. And I can’t very well go out to a meeting in running clothes…or could I? Heehee, I wouldn’t do that. I just like to get my run done early! And then there’s Friday, which is smelling like a long run to me. I only have ten miles this week (another reason I was a little ambivalent about yesterday’s workout), and my goal this year was 20 miles a week. Saturday includes our last 2 soccer games & hockey out of town to be announed…I’m not whining, just thinking…trying to fit it all in.
Good news is Sunday begins Holy Week. I LOVE Holy Week. The older I get, the more meaningful it becomes to me. I love Veneration of the Cross. Our kids’ high school do a phenomenal job of the Stations of the Cross/Passion…I can’t remember the last time I didn’t cry at one of those.
Of course, this weekend, I’ll have to have some kind of an Easter Egg Hunt for the kiddos…yes, I hide eggs just for the girls to find…they enjoy it. Maybe the weather will be warm enough to swim!
There goes my kitchen timer telling me my post-time is up! Gotta get going again!
