Posts Tagged ‘10 miles’

Sunday afternoon and I finished my final workout for the week. Logged everything into dailymile and realized I *only* ran 10 miles this week. 5 days of workouts, 4+ hours, mix of full body strength & cardio but only 10 miles. It didn’t feel like enough. What’s that about?!

So I went out and ran 2 more. Did it change how I felt about the week? No, but it made me feel like at least today I wasn’t a slacker.  No idea where I’m going with this except that I realized I was being crazy and kind of hard on myself.  I’ll stop that.

What’d I do this weekend?

bringing back the smoothies

I took Friday off, slept in, went for a run, got a massage (so painful and soo wonderful), ran into friends on the way home, had beverages, dinner, more beverages, it was fantastic. the end.

Yesterday, there was a birthday celebration at F1. More racing!  This time I drove though so I have no pictures. I was slow. I was okay with it.  so fun!

JT & I had dinner at Amrheins in Southie. Again, no pictures but I got the grilled turkey tips special that came on risotto with cashews, cranberries, and baby spinach. holy deliciousness. I loved it.  The turkey was fine, but the risotto..  I NEED TO RECREATE. soooo good.

I’m never ready for the weekend to end, but at least this one was long.  It was a good one 🙂

how was the weekend?! tell me a story.

Its a gorgeous day!  Okk..  its dark now but it was a gorgeous day.

I did my first double-digit run since Nov & my foot.

10 miles 🙂

they weren’t pretty though. pretty hard is more like it..

I always take a rest day before a long run to “save my energy” or whatever. I’m usually just too nervous that my legs will be tired.  This week I decided I don’t run enough mid-week miles, so I ran slow & easy yesterday.  Today, I think I paid for it. But that’s how I’ll get stronger right?

I should’ve taken pics but I didn’t.

it looked like this... less fall, more winter.

It was a tough run, it was still soo nice to be outside, in the daylight, and in the 40’s too!

I even wished I wore shorts..

Last night, I watched the Adjustment Bureau, which was surprisingly awesome. I’ve had the Netflix DVD for maybe a month. I couldn’t remember what it was supposed to be about, but threw it in anyway.  So good. Watch it.

Today, I caught up on all the productive stuff I never get around to doing, plus a few Homeland episodes on the couch. perfection.

what’s everyone up to this weekend? do you run the day before long runs?

I’m back!!  After a weekend of babies & beverages, I’m home & had a fantastic time!

I have so many fun photos to share but for now – I’ll just give you a little tour of the 10 miler I did on Saturday morning.

Lisa was kind enough to map out a route for me, looks like this.

5 miles out, 5 miles back.

good morning baltimore
tough to keep the camera straight while moving – but I try. 

at some point in the middle – Lisa & I crossed paths, she snapped this for the blog 🙂

oh hello fells point. 

does shuckers remind anyone else of the 5 yr college reunion?

not sure what this is. but it felt photo-worthy

yoga at the harbor? I wanted to jump in.

only 2 more long runs before the half marathon! so soon

after this run was when the real fun began – but I need to catch up on life a bit, so you’ll get the scoop on that tomorrow. 🙂     happy tuesday kids.
