Most of this week was cold and windy, with some rain mixed in. The weekend was nice, but the mornings were still chilly. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some spring miles! I’m getting more and more tired of wearing all the layers and having to bundle up Grayson for our stroller runs (if they can even happen).

I was able to get out with the stroller more this week than most other weeks, but it was still tricky. On Monday it was cold and I didn’t know how far we would make it, so I did a short treadmill run first. On Friday it was SOOO windy. I brought the wind cover for the stroller and tried to put it on, but there was a huge meltdown and it just wasn’t worth it. At least it wasn’t super windy in all directions.
As I shared in recent posts, I’ve been doing banded chin-ups with the hopes of doing a few unassisted ones at some point. This week I was able to (sort of) do a couple. I think I need to get a tad higher, but it’s progress.
The plan was to make this week a cut-back week. My mileage was a little lower than it’s been over the last month or so. I was kind of glad to be doing a shorter long run on Saturday because I just wasn’t feeling it. Actually I wasn’t really feeling it for my speed work on Thursday either! Maybe that’s a sign that it was time for a cutback week. Hopefully next week will be better.
Ready for spring miles
After some warmer weather a few weeks ago, this week felt like winter again. Finally the weekend brought some sun and warmer temps. And now the calendar says it’s officially spring! I hope we can continue with some warmer weather and say goodbye to winter for good now.
How was your running last week?
Does it feel like spring where you are, or are you ready for spring miles?
Can you do chin-ups?
