I Runfess...I have run less mileage this month than I have in a long time and I am okay with that. If you have been reading my weekly wraps the last week weeks, you would know that I’ve switched up my workouts and temporarily dropped my running to 2 days a week. Instead I am doing lots more cardio in the form of swimming, biking and elliptical.
I Runfess… A few weeks ago I absolutely hated my new plan and desperately missed my run time. Fast forward a few weeks and I am feeling stronger and a little lighter. I agree with my trainer that my body needed to mix things up a bit and get in better shape for the upcoming tri season.
I Runfess…I am savoring this February weather we have been having. I don’t think I’ve ever taken my bike out in February. I am just loving it and hope it lasts. I bet come this summer we will all be complaining about how hot and humid it is. But for now, it’s just bliss.
I Runfess…We just found we hit the lottery! The Ragnar lottery. Running in California has always been on my bucket list and we just found out we will be running from San Francisco to Napa Valley this November. How exciting is that?!
I Runfess…I have not taken a day off for a few weeks now. I know not good but it just kind of happened. I am visiting my daughter at school this weekend and looking forward to a fun mother/daughter sorority weekend. Stay tuned for some fun pics all weekend on Instagram. We follow each other right?
