I am trying something new to post my weekly mileage. I got the idea from Melissa at I Crashed the Web. I asked her about it and she told me she uses Canva. I also have used it for my blog posts and love the different options that are available. What do you think? Too bright? Too dark?
Anyway, this was a long and hectic week at work. Nothing specific but I was very tired and was very happy when it was finally Friday. Almost winter break!
This week again consisted of 3 easy runs and 1 speed workout. I had to do my speed workout on Tuesday (did it on Wednesday). I woke up on time and got ready. However, something didn’t feel right and I went back to sleep. An hour later I felt much better!
My speed workout was 15 minutes warm up and cool down, 4×2 minutes with 1 1/2 minutes recovery, and then 3x 1 1/2 minutes intervals with 2 minutes recovery. I did pretty good, but somehow I messed up on the last one.
Wore some colorful tights for the 1st day of Spring!
We did a fun Spring activity with the kids. Yep, all 4 classes which was over 90 students. Pretty cool, right? Our next one will be next month for Easter.
Here is the link if you want to make it with your kids.

I went to the expo Saturday morning to get my bib. I wasn’t there too long but did run into a few friends. I did buy 3 Sparkly Soul headbands and a few Nuun tubes.
Saturday night I laid out my stuff for the next morning. I was debating between shorts and compression socks OR tights since it was supposed to rain in the morning. I ended up with the shorts with compression socks because it did not rain.
I met up with a few friends before and after the race. My goal was simply to finish under an hour and to have fun. It was my first race of the year and I wanted to enjoy it. I definitely did. It didn’t rain. I finished in less than an hour. I had fun. 🙂 I will have a race recap on Tuesday.
Later today I will go to my mom’s (she came back from Mexico yesterday) because my cousins are coming over to eat some mole. << A popular and delicious Mexican food.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
