It’s officially spring, and although the sun isn’t out and the air isn’t warm, I’m still excited to know that nicer days are on the way.
This weekend we definitely got a glimpse of the changing seasons. If you missed out on anything, here’s how I spent the past few days:
- I stayed home sick from work on Friday. My sinus infection got the best of me, but after a hefty dose of antibiotics I started feeling much better.
- On Saturday, I had a great 7-mile run and used my new friend, The Stick. I also shared my first post on NBC New York!
- Sunday was spent thinking of ways to get mentally and physically ready for my upcoming half marathon.
Add in a dose (or two) of 16 Handles frozen yogurt, some quality time with good friends and plenty of sleep — not a bad weekend!
I’m proud to say I was in bed last night around 10 pm and slept amazingly. When my alarm called for me at 5:30 this morning, I answered it feeling refreshed and ready to start the 4-day work week.
That’s right. I have Friday off to head down to D.C. for the race! Yay!
I knew it might be yucky weather today, so I laid out happy-colored running clothes.
Still, the weather was nasty. All of my runs this week will be short runs — no longer than 4 miles — and today I opted for the streets rather than the river path. My thought was that I could stay under awnings and scaffolding and try to stay somewhat dry.
The views this morning were a bit different than normal, but how nice does the Metropolitan Museum of Art look before the sun comes up?
I ran 3 miles and was pretty soaked by the time I got back to my apartment.
(That’s my undershirt, hence why it’s dry.)
A rainy day calls for an easy outfit, so today I’ve got on a skirt and a cardigan.
I know I said I’d try to wear heels less often this week to keep my calves loose and rested, but these ones are pretty low and comfortable.
Rain also calls for an easy hairstyle. Blow drying = crazy frizz. Solution? A simple twist and a ponytail.
My To-Do list for this week is out of control, so I’m off to start tackling it.
HERE’S WHAT I WANT TO KNOW TODAY: Yesterday I rattled off my list of things I do during race week to prepare. Another thing I do is stop listening to all my favorite songs, that way I’m not sick of them by the time I put together my race day playlist. I’m seeking songs to get excited about — things beyond Top 40, because I have that stuff already. What upbeat, can’t-help-but-run-fast songs do you swear by? Please share!
Shout outs to blogger friends!
