It was a week! There was a lot of sunshine (yay!), an abundance of wind (buzzkill!) and frigid flashback-to-winter temps (brrr!).
But the precipitation stayed away, so there's that.
It also was a bit of a taper week for yours truly. I still ran on my usual running days, but I laid off of the lower-body strength work, stairs and HIIT. I also did plenty of walking (and some biking) to keep my legs loose.
Before I give you the down and 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 ;-)
So, here's what went down, this week, in my little corner of the universe:
In other news:
With the chilly temps, I dug out a favorite scoop neck sweater to keep me toasty. I thought of wearing a black sweater with the black pants...but that would have been too predictable LOL. The grey sweater just seemed like a more fun option, especially in contrast to the bright pop of fuchsia from my shirt. What would you have gone with...black or grey? AS always, you're welcome to join the party on Fridays...post a pic of your outfit on Instagram, grab the hashtag (#FridayFashionFlair), and give me a tag as well (@runningonthefly).
Lucky us! We get to dogsit the grand-doggy, Lola, this next week. Don't worry, both her and Max are certain to keep me company...especially if I'm trying to spread out on the loveseat.
And, finally, this little gem caught my eye on Insta this week. I didn't create the meme, nor did I write the text...but it echoes my thoughts. All the hate and self-righteousness on social media is ridiculous these days. If you don't see me arguing, defending, or shaming someone for their own personal words, it's not because I'm indifferent. I just have better ways to spend my limited free time LOL.
So, there you go! Another week is over and done, and we're (already) into the last half of April. That sure happened quickly!
How was your week? Any fun fitness endeavors? Crazy cold and windy in your neck of the woods, or are you enjoying pleasant temps? Any live races?
