Weekly Recap – March 25th

I’m a little late this week – sorry! I wasn’t feeling well over the weekend and have been battling some insomnia issues, so I just wasn’t able to get the blog updated timely. I promise I will do better this week!

MONDAY: Rest – Dawson’s Creek night with the framily

TUESDAY: Body Pump (1 hr) and Zumba (1 hr)

WEDNESDAY: 3.8 miles outside – teaching after

THURDSAY: Rest – choir night!

FRIDAY: Rest – teaching night

SATURDAY: 3.8 miles outside and fun with the “Little Sis” from Big Brothers Big Sisters

SUNDAY: Rest – I wasn’t feeling well

March Mileage: 34 miles

YTD Mileage: 80.1 miles

Notes: Well, I got back to Body Pump…that’s good, right?? This was an “off”-feeling week. We had a 6 miler scheduled for Sunday, but I just wasn’t feeling great with the lack of sleep. I’m careful not to push myself too hard when I’m not prepared, as I think this might be playing a role into when I have minor allergic reactions. We ordered a new bed on Sunday, so maybe more restful sleep will help!

Happy running, everyone!


Grandma’s Half Marathon–here we come!

Today started off with some exciting news…Dan and I were selected in the Grandma’s Half Marathon Lottery which means we are heading to Duluth June 22nd! Everyone who has ever run in Grandma’s (either half or full) has raved and raved about the course and atmosphere, and I’m so excited that we get to experience it this year! It also helps that we will have some motivation after a very cold, cold winter.

After work today, I taught a voice lesson which was fun as always. I really love that all my students are at different stages in learning and singing – the variety keeps things exciting and quite fulfilling for me.

Typically on Mondays, we have been having most of the framily (we refer to our close friends as the “framily” Smile) over to re-watch Dawson’s Creek which has been a BLAST. We are on Season 2, and it’s been a most wonderful trip down memory lane. At any rate, there’s some sickness going around, so instead of DC, Dan and I headed to the store to check out clearance winter items and for me to pick up some KT tape. I’ve been intrigued ever since seeing all they Olympians wearing the tape over the summer games, and decided to finally pull the trigger and try some out. I’ve had ankle issues for the past year and I haven’t gone to the doctor to get it checked out because I’m scared they will tell me to stay off it (which I don’t think I could handle). After much debating, I picked up the blue tape:


And after searching online for the correct tutorial, I taped up my ankle:


I’m really excited to see how it holds up for my run tomorrow and hopefully I will find some relief.

All in all, today was an unexpectedly fantastic day…and it was a Monday of all days!
