Where have we been?? Last week was Spring Break for our kids. I wish I was going to tell you about the warm week- long vacation we took, but I’m not. We stayed here in cold West Michigan as I have for my whole life. With the exception of 1 Spring Break in college….those were the days. 😉
I was afraid Amara was going to be bored for a week straight, but she wasn’t! Success! That meant I had no time for blogging and other “extras”.
I can’t even remember everything we did. Trips to the library, the museum, running boat loads of errands, the gym almost everyday, pawned them off from 9-5 to Andi’s husband. 🙂 A weekend Easter trip to the in-laws. I probably forgot at least 10 other things, but you get the picture. We were busy. I need a vacation. *notice, I did not put a cute 😉 there * Nope.
As for my workouts…I did the usual. Spin three times a week and taught a Cardio Sculpt and 1 Totally Toned class. I also did 2 days of core on my own. I want it to become a trend. Last weekend I ran 12 miles without my partner in crime. It was hard. I won’t lie. I was lonely. I used to run by myself a lot a few years ago. Running 10+ miles alone was not a big deal. I had my music to keep me company. I am not used to that anymore. It was HARD. I am just glad I got it done. Taper time- it seemed like I barely ran! My goal was really to run for 2 hours and I did for 12.15miles in all. It was a beautiful day too, so that helped
a little with my loneliness.
This week I will be teaching my normal classes etc. and running less. I ran a little over 5 miles today, with 3 + being at tempo pace. I might run a few easy miles on Thursday and 10 on Saturday. 10! It’s going to seem so weird! 🙂
It’s time to start planning some goals for after this marathon. I already know 1 goal ( *no more marathons for a while).
