SPRRRRRING BREAK! Who’s excited?!
I kicked mine off with 18 beautiful miles on Saturday morning.
We are so close to shorts weather, but not quite there for the early morning runs. I ran the first 5 miles alone, the next 12 with a friend, and finished off the last mile alone. I averaged a 9 min pace, and the run felt much better than I thought it would. I felt strong through the end, and my left hamstring was almost totally fine! We looped back around to our cars at mile 5 and mile 12 for water and fuel.
Strawberry Clif Shot bloks have been my fuel of choice lately.
I’m encouraged and excited that my hamstring was okay with this run! I tried to analyze the week leading up to Saturday’s long run to see if I did anything differently, but I think my inconsistent strength training and aggressive foam rolling must be finally catching up.
After the run, I helped a friend move (okay, I played with her little daughter while the guys loaded heavy furniture), and then Ryan arrived.
…roasted a bunch of veggies, and made a cauliflower creation with Greek yogurt and spices that was quite possibly the grossest feeling and nastiest tasting thing I have ever experienced.
For the rest of the weekend, we did a lot of eating and walking.
Fun fact: Ryan and Karen can almost eat 3 dozen cookie bars in 2.5 days.
Spring break is off to a great start! We’re heading out for a game night with Andrea and Alex soon that will hopefully include frozen yogurt.
Favorite fruit flavor?
