I love cutback weeks!! And I love the warm weather and time change extra sunlight!!
Tuesday, I had to do my run on the treadmill because we had interviews for summer employment from 2 pm until 6 pm… ugh! It was so many people!! I love my job and it was great getting to do all these interviews with a group of four of us… but it was a long afternoon! I’m glad I didn’t make an excuse (I had been working since 9 am) but got the weekday run done on the treadmill.
On Wednesday, I was supposed to go out to dinner with a friend, but she had to reschedule to Thursday. I didn’t have my gym bag with me so I had to reschedule my weekday run to Friday evening. The weather on Friday was amazing. It was 61 and perfect weather… I felt awesome during my run! It was absolutely great!
Saturday, I decided to do my long run (only 6 miles) after a hectic day of work and a St Patrick’s Day party in Chicago… I knew that I had to get in my long run before the sun went down! It wasn’t the easiest run but it wasn’t horrible either and I got it done before it was dark.
And now, it’s SHAMROCK week!! Shamrock is/was my big goal race of the year, but honestly, I’m not sure I’m ready to crush my 2:15 goal. I’m not sure if I can be at 10:15 pace… it’ll be close, but I’m not really sure. Otherwise, I’m super excited and I know it will be super fun race weekend with Kathryn from Dancing2Running and others… so I’m trying not to think too much about the fact that I probably/more than likely won’t be hitting my goal time.
I’ll be back on Wednesday with Shamrock fun!
