Last week was not quite what I hoped it would be in terms of running. Meaning I hardly ran at all. But you know what? I am so damn dedicated 90% of the year I'm gonna give myself a pass on this one. We all need a break once in a while.
We had a great time down in San Diego. All the family was there from Zach's dad's side and it was great to see everyone. All his aunts and uncles are so cool and of course his parents are so much fun. There were some new cousins that we hadn't met yet, a 2 1/2 year old boy and a baby girl that just turned one. They were wonderful. The other kids are all grown up and super nice. It's not too often we are all together and we cherished every minute.
Well the moving date is shockingly soon and I'm trying to stay calm. We're making good progress on getting the stuff sorted and packed. It is tempting to skip my runs because I have so much to do, but really if I just get out and run for a few miles I will be more productive the rest of the day and less stressed out. Isn't that true about everything in life! Work, relationships, holidays, etc?? Running is such a blessing. Sorry to be so cheesy but I just got back and I feel my load feels a lot lighter. :)
Here's my couple runs since last post:
5.0 miles/45:42/9:09 average pace
(total miles for last week: 16! Weak!)
6.0 miles/53:02/8:51 average pace
So it looks like my speed is picking up already! It's encouraging. Just gotta keep getting out there and working hard. Have a great week everyone! :)
