Move It Monday! #BestFoot

Another Monday is here.  But it's a special one.  The last Monday in this winter season.  Oh yes!  Now, if we'd get a major heat wave and melt all that snow and ice and I could get back on the rail trail.  A girl can dream, right?  



Regardless of the horrid weather, it didn't hold me back from my training.   

Monday - REST!  

Tuesday - 3.5 miles.  44 degrees, melting snow.  I even ran without a vest and gloves.  



Wednesday - 7 miles.  We had another (last??? please!) snowstorm come rolling in Wednesday. The forecast was calling for a pretty bad afternoon, which resulted in an early dismissal.  I took advantage of my "extra" time and hit the gym.  



Thursday - 6 miles.  No school today, but the gym didn't close.  I was scheduled to work so I went in a little early and got in my speed workout.  Nailed it.  Warm up/7:30/recovery/7:20/recovery/7:00/cooldown.  Felt fantastic!!!



Friday - 3.3 miles.  Easy after school miles.  No picture.   I'm a slacker.  



Saturday - 6 miles.  But today I had two pictures!  I ran 6 miles for Jaime, the young mom who was killed this past week.  It breaks my heart to think of her grieving family.  To think that there is always a chance that I could be struck and killed when out for a run is a scary thought, but a real one that races through my head quite a bit lately.  


To break up the treadmill run, I pulled out a 6:54 mile mid run for Happy Fit Mama's March Challenge.  

Sunday - 6.8 miles.   On the treadmill.  Again.  But the window beside me was wide open.  I do appreciate the treadmill and the ability to get in safe miles.  I just miss running on the rail trail.  Melt snow! Melt!  



Weekly Total: 32.1 miles

#ffmarchmiles total:  91.23 miles

I have a sneaky suspicion that today is going to be a rest day.  The last couple of days I've been battling a head cold.  I feel great when I'm running, but as soon as I stop, the head clouds up and nose starts running.  I'll see how I feel when I get out of work and make my decision then.  Rest days are a super important piece to training and in general.  

How's your training going?

    Looks like you had another great week! I am still trying to get back INTO running, so it will be awhile before you see any mileage reports from me like the one you posted recently. I hope the spring thaw starts soon for you!
