Long time, no talk! I did not intend stay away from the blog for as long as I did, but I had so much going on in the past few days that a full schedule plus resting up equaled a lack of technology.
Regardless, I’m back and feeling especially marvelous today thanks to some medicine, family + friend time, relaxation, and LOTS of cake! More on that later in the week, though. 😉
Today after I got back from my morning interval run, I decided that I had to participate in MIMM because I felt awesome. I’m not sure what I did, but my workout was so successful, even after just coming off of a sinus infection. All I can say is thank goodness I was on break last week. Yeesh.
Speaking of sinus infections, that little bug threw a wrench into my training last weekend. I was able to complete both weekday runs as scheduled, but I just was not feeling a 9 mile run with a stuffy nose and a headache on a treadmill (I stupidly left my cold-weather running gear at school).
I decided to switch the 9 mile run for a shorter 6 miler I had on tap for this coming Saturday, which worked out perfectly. A slow 6 miles was wayyyy more feasible last weekend.
I decided that it was finally time to get a sport armband for my iPhone so that I can use my Runtastic app and listen to music during my long runs. Thanks to my brother for the early b-day gift!
I have a really good feeling about upping my mileage in the next month, and I’m psyched for the race. I have so much to squeeze in before that though (a ton of exciting stuff, starting this weekend!), so now I’m just going to focus on my marvelous day-to-day life to help keep my mind in check.
That’s all I’ve got for you today. Promise I won’t disappear again any time soon 🙂
