Don't we all need a little escape, from time to time?
Well, I certainly do. This past week blessed me with such a treat. After all, Winter was coming to a close (according to the calendar at least), and this called for a celebration!
Before I share the 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 ;-)
So, here's what went down this past week:
So, it wasn't an intense week, by any means, but there was enough action to keep me moving. After 10 consecutive days of running (most of which were 3.14-milers with the Week of Pi Challenge), I thought it wise to have a bit of a cut-back week. Running saw 12 miles, walking had 9 miles (more on tap for Sunday afternoon), and biking logged 27 miles. Also, there were a couple of ab/core workouts, one upper-body and one lower-body workout and one elliptical. Yadda Yadda Yadda.
In other news:
Coming up, I have the Chocoholic Frolic 5K next weekend (Iowa City, IA). It's a live race for me, but there's also a virtual option available. I ran this for the first time in 2019. Last year it had to go virtual, so I'm looking forward to running this in person again! If you're interested in joining me, code CHOCKIM will save you $5 on your registration. There's some sweet swag to be had!
I realize that center parts are trending right now...but UGH. I gave it a try this week, but it's (still) totally not my gig. Even with an attempted side pony, it still was not a flattering look. Once and done LOL.
And March Madness has been quite maddening. The Ohio State Buckeyes totally blew my bracket, then Purdue and Tennessee followed suit. I won't even touch on the heartbreak from Michigan State.
...but the Iowa Hawks are still going strong!
So, that's the latest and greatest. We head back to Iowa Monday morning, so I'll be hit and miss on reading/replying to the link-ups...fair warning. I will get back to everyone, but it may not happen as timely as desired.
How are things in your world? Are you following the March Madness with the NCAA tournament? Center hair parts...yay or no way? Did the spring weather arrive? Exercise on vacay: do you make an effort to get it done, even if it's not as intense?
