A week in my shoes….26th April

This afternoon, we will pack up the car until it groans and head up to Apple Hill for the Apple Blossom Weekend and the trail run. I still have no idea what the Husband’s race plans are, and if I’ll be pushing the Dude or not. This race has literally NO info online about it – the ‘course map’ is just a dot to show where the start-line is. I did manage to find THIS handy little write up on Alisyn’s blog. She very kindly told me it was varying terrains, no shade, hot, at altitude. Should be a barrel of laughs, especially with a stroller!! Whatever…I’m really excited about the weekend.

This is what the week looked like.

Saturday: 4 mile trail run with strollers

Sunday: 8 min abs plus 80 mins over-eating at a BBQ

Monday: 2 miles at a dismal Run 4 Boston

Tuesday: 12 miles in Half Moon Bay

Wednesday: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Level 2       

I thought this was getting easier. But it’s not!

Thursday: 6 miles

As often happens, I didn’t want to get up and run at 6am, but the cat woke me up and at 6.30 I found myself outside and ready to run. I wanted to push the pace where possible (i.e. downhill) but somehow found myself blitzing along in the early morning sunshine. By the time I got to mile 5 and knew I was on for a good time, nothing was holding me back. So somehow I did 6.4 miles in 54.49at an 8.35 pace.Yeah, I don’t know how that happened either.

Totally token picture of my running shoes because I read
somewhere that every blog post needs a picture!

And tonight, I went into the city in the evening for the Another Mother Runner party at Sports Basement! But I’ll talk about that more next week.

Friday: 8 mins abs on youtube. And leg-resting.

Okay…have a lovely weekend, all of you! A weekend of fresh air and apples is calling my name!

    So funny I have been doing 8 minute abs on youtube too. Trying to do everyday and do it about four times a week…..so not a great effort there. Good luck on the trails this weekend!
