Well, we made it to March! I am planning to do a February recap/check-in post tomorrow, but for today I’m just gonna talk about what’s been happening lately and share last week’s workouts.
My ClassPass Trial Expired on Wednesday, so I did my best to get in a few more classes earlier this week.
Sunday: Rest, PT exercises
Monday: AM: 45 minute spin class at Rev Cycle PM: Physical therapy and ran 4 miles on Alter-G
Tuesday: Rest, PT Exercises
Wednesday: PureBrarre class, PT exercises
Thursday: Physical therapy and ran 4 miles on Alter-G
Friday: Rest, PT exercises
Saturday: PT exercises, ran 6 miles
Total: 14 miles
This mileage is really low for me, but between the weather and not feeling 100% it just makes sense for now. Lately I have been feeling more frustrated about my “injury” because 1) I can’t seem to figure out any pattern of what makes things better or worse 2) Each week I run less and some days I feel worse than weeks where I am running alot 3) There is no consistency to where I feel aches/pains/tightness. I swear it moves between 3-4 different places every few days.
But anyway, all that is a post for another day…what I do know is that when things feel “off” its not as comfortable to run….so while I don’t necessarily think running is causing pain I do think that it can be a ripple effect when things are already hurting, if that makes sense.
Do you see how frozen over the harbor is from the picture from Saturday’s run? It was pretty weird to look out where there is usually water and just see a sheet of ice covered in snow.
Speaking of which, it’s snowing again as I am writing this on Sunday.
Thanks for nothing, March.
On a happier note, I need to give a few shout-outs today. This first goes to the amazing Suz who BQ’d this weekend at the Phoenix marathon!
Also, I am coaching Alexis who is training for the Providence Cox Marathon on May 3rd and lives in Boston…so you know how tough it has been to train there this winter. But she managed to get her 15 miler done at an awesome pace despite negative temperatures, ice, a frozen water bottle, and having to finish up her run on the treadmill!
So even though I’m not training or even running much, I like to live vicariously through these other runners who are doing amazing things!
As for the weekend, there’s not much to report. We got to go back to the house on Saturday, and it’s almost complete! My parents met us near the house and we grabbed lunch and Starbucks and they got to see the house for the first time since it looked like this:
We took some measurements and met a neighbor who recently moved in across the street. I spent the rest of the afternoon getting some food prep done and made chili in the crock pot to eat for dinner after we got home from church. The rest of the evening consisted of a few of my favorite things: pajamas, wine, and chocolate.
So far Sunday has been spent drinking coffee, making pancakes, and doing blog stuff. I’m also hoping to do some cleaning/packing later today. We have been picking random areas of our apartment and tossing out a ton of stuff that we don’t plan to move. Before Rob and I moved in together 5 years ago I was moving every 1-2 years so I was always cleaning things out as I was moving. Now we have lived here for 5 years and gathered tons of crap that together we will need to decide what is worth keeping/tossing. It will be alot of work which is why I am glad we are getting started early! Each time I do a small section I end up with 1-2 huge garbage bags of stuff that we are getting rid of.
I’m linking up with Tara for the Weekend Update!
How was your weekend? Anyone else have a shout-out worthy race or run?!
When was the last time that you moved?
