I hope all the running Momma’s had a great Mother’s Day! (even the Mothers of furry kids (animals 😉 ) I was a lucky girl and was treated to breakfast in bed, spent the morning
napping playing on the beach, the afternoon running on the trails with a friend, and the evening curled up with the Mr. watching Game of Thrones. Here is how this (me) running momma moved it last week:
Sunday- a.m.- 5 mile loop p.m.- 6 miles
Monday- a.m.- 7 miles p.m.-5 miles
Tuesday- a.m.- 8 miles p.m.-3 miles
Wednesday- 11 miles
Thursday- a.m.-6 miles p.m.-5 miles
Friday- a.m.-7 miles p.m.-5 miles
Saturday- 4 miles
I totaled 72 miles for this week. Can I say that I am still in shock that I am recovered? After spending January, February, March, and April in one level of pain or another it is still a mental & physical surprise to me every time I start a run and am not met with wincing pain. I wonder how long it will take me to realize my calf tear is healed and not feel scared the first 10 steps of a run?
The weather and temps have been gorgeous lately. After 3 years of living in the beautiful but GRAY Pacific Northwest the blue skies here have me falling in love. Here’s a few pics of where I ran this past week. Remember the old Sesame Street Game…”One of these things is not like the other?!?” Sadly one of the places I ran is not like the others 😉
Where is your favorite place to run?
I love running on the beach but my ankles can’t stand it for long so my favorite place is on the trails at Seashore National Park in Virginia Beach. I do really miss the trails in Poulsbo, Washington too. They were amazing for hill training.
