You know how it is...you wake up early and head outside, eager to greet the new day amidst another sunrise.
Or is that just me?
Truth be told, we did have some sunshine this week...but the sunrises kept eluding me (until Friday). Definitely not a deal breaker on my fitness endeavors, but still.
Before I share all the details (and some of the weather), 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 8:00AM (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 in my little world of fitness this week:
Then, after work, we met up with Mike and Amy to tackle the hilly bike path. This ride was downright brutal. The temps were hot and felt much more humid than indicated on the weather app. And the wind was relentless. Utterly relentless. Did I mention it was windy? Fifteen total biking miles; about 12 of which were on the hilly portion of the trail.
In case you missed out, here's what else went down on the blog this week:
Finally, check this out! I was late getting the sunflower seeds in the ground, so I've been nurturing them in some discarded egg shells. These started sprouting on July 5th, and 11 days later, they've grown a lot! I'll be putting them in the ground this week, hopefully.
So that's the latest and (somewhat) greatest. Summer has been going great, but YIKES, it's going much too fast...how are we already halfway through July?
How was your week? Has the sunrise been playing Hide & Seek with you, too? Any races? Ever broken up a long training run into multiple shorter runs, or incorporated a race in the mix?
