The recap part of this post will be short and sweet. Lather, rinse, repeat as they say.
Monday: 3 miles. The day after my long run. This is probably not the day I should take on Mo-Fo Hill, but I did. I’m enjoying seeing my progress and how much easier it’s getting week by week to go up this hill. I’m no longer needing 10 minutes to catch my breath once I get to the top (only 9 minutes now, lol).
Tuesday: 5 miles. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the picture already. It was a gorgeous, early morning run by the lake. I usually fight getting up so early, but I’m always so happy when I do.
Wednesday: I rested. Yep, I said it… I rested. I was supposed to cross train, but I didn’t. I’m not proud of it, but life happens.
Thursday: I rested again. I was supposed to run 5 miles, but I missed my early morning and it was so nasty hot in the evening.
Friday: 3 miles. Again, I couldn’t get up as early as I wanted, so that only left me enough time to tackle 3. I was going to finish it off with 2 in the afternoon, but, well… we all know how that goes, don’t we.
Saturday: Rest day.
Sunday: 10 miles. You know you live in a small town when running from one end to the other is only 5 miles. I had to make up the difference with an out and back on the trail. A beautiful run, so cool, so overcast. I live in the Pacific Northwest for the clouds, people, not the sun, hehe.
Weekly Total: 21 miles/34 km (Shameful… I must do better this coming week. Respect the distance.)
Total Mileage So Far: 62 miles/99 km
Sunday night we went to see 2 Cellos play at Chateau Ste Michelle Winery in Woodinville. It was thanks to Motivational Music Monday and the lovely Dorothea from Wanderwolf Running who introduced us to these fun musicians.
In case you don’t know who they are, they are two classically trained cellists from Croatia who took the world by storm with their rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.” They play everything from Vivaldi to AC/DC, not to mention a little Iron Maiden and some Nirvana.
An amazing time. The child even enjoyed it. (Side note here… AJ has asked to go see Bon Jovi if and/or when they come back to Seattle… I’m so proud!!)
