This month I ran 122.09 miles compared to 90.3 in January. Definitely another great month. Ugh, I cannot take this winter anymore!! It is driving me nuts! More snow and more snow. I cannot wait till Spring.
I ran two races: Walt Disney World Enchanted 10K and Walt Disney World Princess Half Marathon. Two humid days in FL. After the race on Saturday, I went to Epcot and had so much fun! I’ve never been there and am glad I was able to go.
My training for the 50K is going OK. I’ve tried to keep up with all of my workouts but man sometimes I am just not in the mood to run. Thankfully Coach Sara has been very helpful and understanding. My training plan includes doing a variety of runs (tempo, steady, recovery, and long) which makes my runs interesting. But with 23 kids in a classroom for 6.5 hours, after work all I just want to do is come home and relax on the sofa.
Papers I need to review and grade this weekend. Not fun.
I am sure you’ve heard of Apera Bags. I’m excited because I purchased a bag and am supposed to get it on Tuesday. They have so bags but at the expo last weekend in FL, they were there and I was able to see the bags and decide which one to purchase. The winner is…Sling Tote.
The bag is roomy but yet not bulky. I like that it can be worn over the shoulder or across the body. Every morning I walk out with at least 3 bags to go to work and this bag will simply make it easier for me to haul my stuff for the gym.
I also bought a pair of Aspaeris shorts. According to their website “The patent pending technology uses Dual Sensory Compression™ in key compression zones that guide knees into the proper position, acting as a guide that creates muscle memory. This, coupled with a second layer of overall compression leads to proper joint, “loading,” to help you avoid injury and improve performance as your legs move more efficiently.”
I was worried when I got them because they look very small. I wear a medium in Nike and Brooks shorts so I decided to also buy a medium. No, I did not pay attention to their size chart. The first time I wore them the waistband kept rolling down and made it uncomfortable to run. I pulled them up and they finally stayed put. I wore them again today, adjusted them, and ran 12 miles in them. Not sure if that’s what I am supposed to do each time or maybe I ordered the wrong size and should have gone with a large instead? Overall, I like the shorts. They’re silky soft and felt comfortable once I adjusted them. They did not ride up at all. Yeah, definitely my kind of shorts.
How cute are these pink ones?
