Are you ready for some chatting? Over coffee (or, in my case, chai)? What say we throw in a few Runfessions...you know, just to keep it real?
I'm always game for a (virtual) meet-up with like-minded people. Here's what I'd share if we were having a (virtual) coffee gathering...
First of all, I'd have to runfess that my Spring races (and their finish times) kind of took me by surprise. Technically, according to the calendar, Spring is not over by a long shot, but my racing is on hold until June 1st. I'm happy to be done for a bit, and I'm happy with all that I accomplished, but especially proud of the fact that I did it on my own. I didn't really have a specific plan because I had a variety of race distances. I just tried to pay attention to what my body was telling me, in terms of speed work and rest. I got really lucky, though, in how things fell into place in April (after the three speedy 10K's in March). The Cherry Blossom 10-miler was a natural succession (in distance), followed by the Drake half marathon...and then the 1-miler was a significant finishing kick a few days later.
Maintenance On The Daily:
-10 stair flights (double-stepped)
-2:30 minute side plank (on elbow, 1:15 each side)
Finally, I'm not sure what's happening to me, but I'd runfess that I have kind of morphed into a filter freak. I seem to go in phases where I don't filter any pics (because I want a "real" representation of what I actually look like) and then I start getting creative and go a little overboard. What can I say? Some filters really enhance the image. The colors pop. There's more depth. The pics look more like art. Sorry, not sorry.
Anyways, those are just a few things I'd chat about (along with the crazy weather and my yearning for summer).
How about you? Anything you'd runfess? Would you be drinking coffee, chai or something else? How did your April play out? Any fun races on your roster, in April or coming up soon?
