Happy birthday week to me! Tomorrow I turn 26 and I cannot believe it. 25 happened way to fast, I seriously wish time would just slow down sometimes. Here is a look into the past week:
Monday morning I headed out for my usual easy miles. My legs were feeling unusually tight during this run and did not really warm up until the end. I definitely noticed that I needed to foam roll.
Tuesday was another recovery run. I was actually loving this run the whole time. Moving slower has taught me to enjoy things like people who are passing by and the moment I am in.
Wednesday I got up at 4am to get my GMP run in by 5:30. I have never ran this early before and honestly it was pretty eye opening. 4am is a scary hour! It was so dark out and literally only a few people were on the road. I stayed near the cars on the road and in the light so I could 1. be seen and 2. be aware of my surroundings. I know that is not my only 4am run but I know next time I’ll be way more prepared.
Thursday I was feeling super tired so I was relieved to actually sleep in. After getting 9 hours a sleep I was feeling so much better and headed to get my yoga on.
Friday I got up early and headed out for another easy 5 miles. I took a new route which I enjoyed a lot! After my run I spent the whole day deep cleaning our condo. I love doing this every so often!
Saturday was long run day and I was actually looking forward to this run all week. It was my first double digit run in months and I was ready to rock it! Still keeping it at an easy pace my legs felt great the whole time. I had to fight myself to slow down a lot because occasionally I’d look down and see I was running way too fast. Overall it was a great first double-digit run!
Sunday was rest day!
