Well this week was hectic to say the least!
On Monday, I got my new shoes!! They are the same shoes as before but in a new color. The running store was busy when I came in, so not much time to shop around, but I know that Asics work for me, so I’m sticking with it!
On Tuesday, I had to stay at work a little later and the temperature was super humid and hot (hello Chicago!), so I decided to do my 2.5 mile run on the indoor track. It wasn’t too crowded.. yippy!… but I didn’t run at my ideal pace… oh well, I had run a half marathon just 3 days earlier!
On Wednesday, I had an early morning meeting and then I was downtown all day seeing Motown the Musical with my mom and aunt. It was absolutely great! Before running, I was a frequent at musicals in downtown Chicago… that was how I spent my “fun money.” I still try and see the musicals I really want to go to, but it’s much less often than I use to go 😦
I decided to do a double this weekend, running 5 miles on Saturday and 2.5 miles on Sunday to complete my weekly mileage for the week. In less than 10 days, Dopey Challenge training starts and there will be plenty of 4 days in a row running 🙂
I’m so proud of Lauren for completing her first marathon on Saturday! She has come so far in just 1 year! It’s crazy to think that less than 1 year ago she ran her first half marathon and now she’s already run her first full marathon!! We Facetimed on Sunday and I think I may have convinced her to do Grandma’s Marathon with me in 2016 (it’ll be the 40th anniversary). I cannot let her do this awesome race and never do it myself 🙂
