Squeezing in a Run!
Monday I ran on the treadmill and did a speed workout. It went well and I felt pleasantly tired. I am reading a lot of half marathon race reports and feeling envious. I would have loved to have tried the Mercer Island Half - well for the views and the bloggy friends, not for the hills!
Tuesday I had a very long day with my regular work, a dental appt. and an evening meeting. In between the dental appt. and my meeting I squeezed in a run and I do mean squeezed. I had packed all kinds of stuff not knowing what the weather would be. It was cold and damp - drizzly, probably my least favorite weather to run in especially later in the day. But I changed after my appt. and headed out. It was actually just fine and I loved running somewhere new. I have run before after appts. in this town but when I had more time so I took a loop I didn't have time for today. It was an out and back but I liked the road/view a lot. I had to change quickly and try to look presentable for my meeting. I changed at a gas station, grabbed a cup of coffee and got to my meeting right on time! This run was hands down the best part of my day. Probably why I could speak civilly at the meeting.
Wednesday - today- I was back on the treadmill, mainly so I could use the machines afterwards to strength train. When I started I didn't think I was going to be able to stand it but I got into a rhythm surprisingly quickly and settled into my run. Again I have that pleasant tired feeling from a good workout.
Now a couple of rest days and a 10K Spring Fling on Saturday plus I am volunteering at Kaynor's Sap Run on Sunday!
