Hello Monday! Ignore the screaming red warning and notice the temperature!
Lola was literally panting and it was only 14 degrees Celsius out...lol. That will just show you how abrupt the warm temperatures appeared. Once we got home Lola took Guard dog duty to a whole other level....lol. Short dogs need a little help to look out the window. ;)
I've started my "Post-Boston-Easter-Pig-Out-Stash." :D I'm overly excited to try these. Yes. Peeps are a weakness and I usually eat the whole pack in one setting. That's how classy I can be.
Some pretty cool Tuesday mail came today. Shalane is determined to be this years female Victor at Boston.
|I can't even imagine how squeal-worthy this would be to see in real life!!!|
I didn't run again on Tuesday, but I did do a short and sweaty workout: Abs and Arms.
8 minute arms
My Wednesday run was oh so good! I wore shorts for the first run of the year!!!!!!!!! Yes, I need that many exclamation marks. :D I warmed up for the first two miles and did the next few in Tempo Style. Then I eased off for the final mile and half. Awesome run :D
I've been checking the weather like a mad lady for Marathon Monday. When I first checked it the little icon displayed a sun with SNOW FLAKES!!! All I could think was 'Throw me a freakin' bone here!' The next morning it was showing rain drops. Bummer but not like SNOW! And now look at the forecast for the Boston Marathon: Let's hope this one stays put. ;)
|I'm thinking Beet Root Juice is on the grocery list of many marathoners these days.|
So my Thursday started with a bright and early batch of physio. My PT is super easy going and isn't at all letting on that he's worried about any little ache, pain, twitch, etc. I'm experiencing. He continues to express his opinion on my attitude: "This Marathon is making you crazy." Yep. He said that.
And if the massage didn't do it than my 4 miler sure did!
Friday was my rest day. It was very nice running weather out when I got home and I really wanted to hit the road. :S I was well-behaved though and settled for a nice walk with my furry BFF instead. :)
How is the weather where you are these days?
Have you ran in shorts yet this year?
I hope you've had a great week and was able to enjoy a few sunny miles! Thanks for visiting GGR. :)
Boston is in 9 Freaking Days!!!!!!!!
