Last week my workouts were pretty uneventful. I ran long on Monday and then had a few easy runs during the week. No CrossFit for me last week but that’s ok as my body welcomed the break. I had a migraine in the middle of the week so took my easy running to the treadmill in hopes of the migraine disappearing. Sometimes exercise helps when a migraine hits.
My mom came up for a visit from Thursday-Sunday morning so I took some time off from running. We kept ourselves very busy. The kids had Shakespeare Day at School. Piper took on the role of Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Brock was Macbeth. I am so impressed with all of the kids who performed and by Piper and Brock who had many lines to memorize and perform.
I am so proud of my kids for all of their hard work and hope that they will get into other dramatic performances soon as they both did an incredible job. After seeing their performances my mom and I spent Saturday doing house projects as well as enjoying some time shopping together and finished off our time together with a fantastic dinner at one of our local restaurants.
On Sunday afternoon I joined my friend Bridget at her house for a long run. She has tons of trails and dirt roads to run on near her house so we were easily able to find a loop that took us just over two hours. We ran for 2:20 and finished a total of 13 miles with 1626 Feet of elevation gain for the run.
Even though our paces weren’t fast this run challenged us and was great training for the upcoming Wallis Sands Half Marathon which is happening in less than two weeks. The Wallis Sands Half Marathon course is mostly flat so my legs will be excited after all of these super hilly runs. I am looking forward to testing my fitness soon!
Then just a quick reminder about your health. I had a mammogram scare last fall which turned out to be a benign cyst. I had a follow up ultrasound today which was all clear. Be sure to go and get yourself check out at your yearly mammogram. It is so important to stay on top of your health!
