Happy Monday! How was your fourth? I spent mine with family in Frederick and took Charlotte to see her first fireworks. I actually had a lot of fun because I haven’t gone to see fireworks in years. My brother went down to the park to stake out a spot early in the morning and we met up later in the afternoon to listen to music, eat good food, and let the kids run around.
As far as workouts go, last week there were zero! As I mentioned in last Monday’s post I was in Vegas for work and the time change and delayed flight, combined with the long days really wore me out. I did do a ton of walking, it was one of the few times I wish I had a FitBit. I got home at about 2:30 AM on Thursday and was too tired to get up on Friday morning. Vegas was fun though. My hotel was awesome, I saw a Cirque show, and I actually did learn some things at the conference. (I’m proud to say that none of these pictures involved a selfie stick.)
On Saturday morning, my local running store, Charm City Run was having a Fourth of July group run so I signed up and met up with another friend who was running. I was only going to do 3 miles, but thankfully she convinced me to do 4. When we got started it was misty and overcast out and I had hoped the rain would hold off. About 2.5 miles in, it started to pour. I had never run in the rain before so I felt kinda awesome. I wasn’t wearing a hat though and it was getting in my eyes, not fun. Overall, the run went okay, my body didn’t totally hate me.
Total Miles – 4
Today it’s back on the wagon. Half-Marathon training officially starts this coming Saturday so the countdown begins again!
Since it’s that time of year again, are you starting up your training for a fall race anytime soon? How did you celebrate 4th of July?
