Another high -mileage week is in the books.
Would anyone believe me if I confessed that I'm feeling a tad bit fatigued? This marathon training, though fun (at times), is not for sissies.
Mondays have become my favorite (training) day on the schedule because they are just easy miles. No paces/splits/speed work. Just good old-fashioned running. Barb and I have started calling them "5 at 5" (and I have coined the hashtag #5at5AM).
|I love my easy Monday runs! Five easy miles always feel so good!|
|stairs and planking...my two favorite forms of cross-training|
|Although it was a mere 30-degrees, it actually felt great!|
|After finishing the 5-miler (on the left), and after finishing the 13.1 (on the right)|
|This is the second year that they have medals that are magnetized for the full marathoners and half marathoners who do the Combo challenge (the Saturday race and one of the Sunday distance races). Aren't they pretty?|
In other news, we became grandparents to a little fur baby this weekend! Our daughter (in Pennsylvania) adopted a sweet little Shih Tzu, named Lola. Life is, indeed, quite good!
As usual, I'm linking with my gals Holly and Tricia for the Weekly Wrap. I highly encourage you to check out their awesome blogs, as well as the numerous linked blogs.
