So as it turns out I got a little bit of a head start for my March Break:
We had an ice storm that then turned to snow, so basically there was a thick coating of ice HIDING under the fluffy snow and of course that was just slipp-ER-y!
I did not complain though because I got to chillax and then:
Yee got right into those tight spots and also informed me that the muscle fibres in my right hip (the hip that literally feels like a thorn in my side), feel like a guitar string. Yikes!
Last Saturday I fuelled for my LONG run with Jennie with fajitas w/mango salsa, tortilla chips and broccoli...mmm.
Our 19 miler totally kicked my butt but we got it done!
We had a LOT of slushy puddles that apparently were filled with salty water from the snow storm the day before:
You know what's good marathon endurance training? Keeping up with a bunch of 6-7 year olds during Spirit Week at school! Pweph. We did stuff like:
Crazy hair day:
|I know, I'm not that crazy...lol.|
|Ms. Brenda loaned me this hat and so many people thought that my hair was spiked on the top!!! It is NOT. LOL.|
|I got a lot of compliments on my attire, lol.|
Okay how funny is this?!?!? I had one of my coworkers laughing just as hard as myself when I read this at school:
Monday: Gym date with Sam where we did the bike and free weights. Then once I got home I did Yoga for Runners. I literally youtube my yoga videos on the apple tv and it's awesome!
6 mile run followed by yoga.
|I was so tired on this run! We had a class field trip planned for the next day and I got exhausted just thinking about it. All I could think about was the looming March Break (which as you saw at the start of this post came early!).|
|P.S. if you don't use Bitmoji you totally should! I'm addicted to that app!!! And I sort of think my avatar looks like me!|
Zero miles but some yoga and a MASSAGE!!!!
Followed by a brief visit to Little Hound in search of two beautiful chocolate brown eyes. <3 ;)
Christine, Marg and I headed out bright and early this morning to conquer 2 x 10 mile loop around Halifax. We were sure to get some good hills in with Christine's Boston preparation route map. ;) I have to just tell you that two out of three of us literally almost lost our hats from the wind! Take a look at my jacket below, lol. It's whipping in the wind!
Longest run since Chicago and Marg's longest run ever! Be sure to congratulate her. ;)
The thing about city running: Red lights. It's a love hate relationship on a long run. ;)
This week's total: 49 miles
Lots of stretching and strength!
Thanks so much for stopping by the GGR blog! Have a wonderful day!

What race is next on your radar? A bunch of us are doing the Moose Run 25k run next Sunday!

Happy Running,Heather :)
