I think Momma N likes me again.
I say that with the utmost sincerity and humbleness. We've had some very questionable weather this spring, especially in recent weeks. It finally feels like the spring temps are here to stay...well, until the summer temps make their (much anticipated!) arrival.
Although our spring has been a bit psychotic in terms of weather, I honestly cannot complain (much) because I've had decent weather on my most of scheduled running days. I've been able to swap a day here or there to accommodate the rain (or outright avoid it), and have not had to struggle through too many unpleasant outdoor adventures. Glass half full, right?
This past week went well. As mentioned last week, it was time for a scaled-back, recovery week. With Grandma's Marathon looming (now only three weeks out!), the mileage is crucial but the recovery is paramount.
Monday rolled in, bringing us unseasonably cold temps and a stubborn N/NW wind that smacked us in our faces during our #5at5. None the less, the run went well and we had daylight for almost the entire five miles. Another successful #nevermissaMonday, so all was well.
|It felt like a late-winter run...minus the snow|
|There also was a badly-needed pedicure on the agenda|
|Be careful with the camera angle...you may look like a giant with a child's bike|
|Happy with the daylight!|
|Orange and Navy for the win!|
|10 miles done|
|another successful recovery run done|
In other news....
I must confess that my 5-minute plank didn't happen on Thursday. Oops. I was up late finishing my Friday blog post, and forgot about the plank until the next morning. Have no fear, I did the plank on Friday evening instead....can you think of a better way to spend a Friday evening?
Can you say DOMS?

And I'm also linking with Courtney for her Weekly Training Recap Link-up
But enough about me! How was your week? Spring-like weather? Training runs going alright? Are you disciplined about treating the recovery with the same respect as the training?
