Wow! I can't believe it's been almost three weeks since I've done a blog post. I kinda sort of took a blogging hiatus. It wasn't on purpose, but as the days rolled on, I guess it's what I needed at the time.
Life has been so busy. Between work and home, it seems like I've been on the go 24-7. But don't worry friends, I'm back!
So what have I been up to lately? It's a random collection of things..from running to shooting!
Mapping out the marathon-I've been reading up on numerous marathon plans, and trying to find one that will work for the Chicago Marathon. Each night, I try and do some research on the do's and don'ts of a training plan. Yes I crossed the finish line of my first marathon in December, but I know there are things I want to do differently this time around. I've narrowed down a plan and now I'm trying to map out my calendar to make sure I get all my runs in....a few of our summer vacations are definitely going to have some long runs!
I'm a loaded weapon-For years, I've wanted to go shooting. I've never held a gun, let alone shot a gun. The hubs has never been a fan of me getting my hands on a loaded weapon. After all, I'm a loaded weapon at times...LOL Last weekend, I had the chance to go shooting with two great friends. We spent all day in the woods and I had a great first experience with shooting some "big guns!"
Running-I've been working hard at building a strong mileage base in preparation for marathon training. Each week, my mileage has been increasing. It's so nice to see some progress. This week was especially awesome! I ran four days this week, my long run today was double digits (10 miles...'bout time), and I hit 20 miles for the week. I'm getting there...one day at a time, one foot in front of the other!
Sleeping-This week I've been so tired. Like bedtime at 8:00 tired. Can you relate? For about three nights this week, I was in bed well before 9:00. Seemed crazy at the time, but my body needed it. It feels good to be so rested!
So there's my last few weeks. Sorry for the hiatus! I'm glad to be back at it ! Be on the lookout for new posts coming this week! Have a great week!
