I am finally better! Yesterday morning I went on a celebratory hike alone through the woods. It was blissful and exactly what I needed to greet this new week. With 2 months to go until the Whidbey Island Half, it is time to resume my normal schedule. Nothing makes you more grateful for running than when you’ve had to take a break for health reasons. I also baked some delicious hamantaschen last night, making for a tasty finale to my weekend. I recommend this recipe if you’re interested. Neither healthy nor low-calorie… but we’re runners, so it’s all good!
The plan for this week is 5 miles tonight, Zumba tomorrow, 3-4 miles Wednesday, rest on Thursday, and 7-8 miles Friday. The upcoming holiday weekend should afford me at least one day for a solid long run. There is a “two for the road” 5K on Saturday morning hosted by the running club I belong to which I may do, depending on how the morning unfolds (we have friends staying with us this weekend). How do you make time for running when you are also hosting others?
Glad to be back, and super psyched for my run tonight!
