How about a week on the down-low?
Most know I don't like sitting idle, even after a tough (hilly and windy) race. I do know how to "scale-it-back" while my body recovers, though. We all get to do our fitness our way, and recovery is no exception. Thank goodness!
Of course, Momma N did her best to intervene, but she also threw in a few nice surprises...
Before I give you the low-down, 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 this week in my little world of fitness:
In other news:
Friday Fashion Flair. Friday was a moderately cool day, so I needed long sleeves. I've had this denim button-down for several years, and it's one piece that has stood the test of time, probably due to its "fitted" cut. Denim is great for its versatility; it can be dressed up or dressed down depending on what you pair with it.
I mentioned my daffodils and magnolias in my yard, but I also noticed some tulips are ever-so-close to blooming as well. Speaking of flowers, these beauties showed up at my work desk this week. It's always nice when your co-workers take the time to show their appreciation.
So, that's the latest and greatest! This week was active, but also all about recovery from last weekend's race. And, it was crazy (again) trying to figure out how to dress for the weather. Thankfully, we didn't get as much rain as expected...I'm hoping that holds true for this coming week as well. I have the Fight for Air Climb on Saturday morning and the Des Moines Women's 10K on Sunday. Knock wood, both days are looking dry and somewhat sunny right now...
How did your week play out? Surely, I'm not the only one shaking my head at Momma N's antics? Any great workouts to mention? Any racing?
