Weekend Update

Well, how was your weekend? I feel like mine was almost nonexistent because of work stuff, but we still managed to fit a lot of fun in. Friday night was spent at a work event, which ended up turning out great! I woke up on Saturday and ran some errands, which included picking up our shirts for the half marathon! By the time I got home, Kev was ready to run, so we headed to the gym to get in a couple of miles before meeting our friends for dinner at our favorite, El Torazo. Cough, four, cough margs later, a few of us headed to the UofL mens hockey game. SO FUN. Tiny little rink with barely any sitting, so we got to stand along the boards. Again, so fun. We somehow ended up at Holy Grale for beers and beer cheese…not that I’m complaining. On Sunday, I spent my morning recovering from the night before and left that afternoon for Indianapolis for work. We had some meetings up there Sunday night and Monday morning, and I can’t believe we made it home alive last night because we got a ton of snow yesterday, with more expected tonight! The weekend flew by, but it was another great one and I’m already looking forward to next weekend because DISNEY.

P.S. FLORIDA IN FOUR DAYS.

Half Marathon Training {February 1-7}

February 4: After 12 miles, it took a lot of motivation to do these two. My legs were really sore and felt incredibly heavy during this run.

February 5:¬†Another rough run. I’m not sure why my legs were feeling so heavy, but this was a tough one.

February 7: I decided after doing two treadmill runs earlier in the week, that I hate the treadmill and I love running outside, even if it was 35 degrees, because it makes the runs go by so fast! Like last week, I took Gracie with me on the first three miles. Once she was getting tired, I quickly dropped her off (literally stopped for like two seconds) and ventured out for the other five. I was feeling great, until I hit a wall at mile seven. The last mile was. the. worst., but I pushed through and finished!

Since I ran this outside (finally not on the treadmill), I was able to see my splits.
