There was a whole lotta green going on this week!
We're talking emerging grass (courtesy of the melting snow). The MSU Spartans had a big victory Tuesday evening. And, there was a St. Patrick's themed (in-person!!!) race on the roster.
After so much cold, in previous weeks, it was great to usher in an entire week of pleasant weather. March is a tricky and temperamental month, weather-wise, so this past week was a nice treat.
Before I give you the down 'n dirty details, welcome to the Weekly Run Down!
I love hosting this link-up with Deborah (from Confessions of a Mother Runner)! If you write a fitness-based blog, you're invited to join the party. The link-up opens at 1:00 (EST) on Sundays and remains open through noon on Monday. We love reading about everyone's weekly fitness endeavors, training highlights (or low lights) and race recaps. We ask that you link back to both hosts, and we encourage you to read/comment on the other linked blogs as well...please don't link-drop & dash ;-)
Anyways, here's what went down this past week:
All in all, this was a great week! I took a chance switching a few of my workouts around, and it was well worth it. The DOMS were no joke, so I'm glad I was prepared for them. How'd we do?
In case you missed out, here's what else went down on the blog this week:
In other news:
Friday Fashion Flair! With all the excitement for Saturday's race, I felt compelled to get in the St. Patrick's Day spirit. So what if I was a few (or 12) days early? Life is too short to wait around for ONE specific day. I say if you got the green, go ahead a start the celebration. Anyways, care to join me? Post a pic of your Friday outfit on Instagram, grab the hashtag (#FridayFashionFlair) and be sure to tag me (@runningonthefly).
On March 2nd, Dr. Seuss' birthday was celebrated. Dr. Seuss played a big role in our kids' childhoods. In all honesty, I don't know who enjoyed reading his books more...my kids or myself. I came across this passage from the book One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish many years ago, and it spoke to me.
Lastly, the second annual Week of Pi begins tomorrow! There's already a slew of runner friends joining me for some (or all) of it, so I'm looking forward to all the Pi fun! This involves running 3.14 miles each day, ending on March 14th...which is the National Day of Pi (also my birthday LOL). Last year's recap is HERE.
So that's a wrap! We're another week closer to Spring (and Summer), and the cold of Winter is (mostly) behind us. Onward!
How are things in your world? Feeling like Spring? Are you seeing green, too?
