Weekly Run Down: End of the month and 335 miles

Weekly Mileage-36.jpg

Happy Sunday!  I hope you had a great week with your family.  I had a great time and ate so much these past couple of days.  It was all yummy but not good for my waist.  🙁

How is it that we are in December?  November did go by fast and I am sure December will too.  I will be in school 3 weeks and then will have Winter Break.

I did not run a lot in November.

For some reason I did not feel good this week.  I was sneezing a lot.  For sure I thought I would get sick but I didn’t.  Could it be allergies?  I remember my doctor telling me that as one gets older, they can get allergies.  

Monday morning I ran 3 miles. I forgot to delete my records last week but remembered to do it on Monday.  Happy with my fast mile.

I did not run on Tuesday but saw a beautiful sunrise.

My coach moved a few workouts because I did not feel good.  I was exhausted Tuesday and Wednesday.  Due to the changes I ended up running on Thanksgiving.  It was a fun workout.  It was 3 miles warmup and 6×1 minute intervals with 1 minute recovery, then another mile or so to end with 5 miles.  I got 2 badges!

Another record for me.  Boy, I have a lot of work to do.  🙂

Something happened with my left foot.  The top left side began to bother me.  I was supposed to run 6 miles on Saturday but didn’t because of my foot.  Plus it was raining and I did not want to run in the rain. 😜

It felt somewhat better on Sunday but I didn’t make it to one mile.  It hurt!  I went back home and sent a text to my couch.  He said it was probably due to a tight calf and tendon.  I thought it was my shoes and decided to retire my Brooks Ghost 11 with 335 miles.  I was hoping to make it to 400 miles.  How cute are my new Oiselle tights?

My coach had me do 60 minutes (20 minutes easy followed by 4 x 5 minutes fast, 5 minutes easy).  That is the longest I have been on the bike!  I thought it would be bored but I wasn’t. 😜  I biked through several cities by the sea and watched TV.  

Do you have allergies?  Did you have them as a kid or “recently”?

Weekly Run Down: A new kitten and still no running

Still no running but my foot does feel better.  This week I did 4 workouts on the Peloton bike.  My bottom does not hurt as much but still get a little sore.  I do have a seat cover but maybe I need cycling shorts?

I enjoy the classes that have various resistance levels.  Yesterday’s was tough!  I don’t know if you can see in the picture but this class had a 90-100% resistance.  Yeah, I didn’t last that long but I still enjoyed it.

Doing good in my challenge.

My brother found a kitten and brought him/her on Sunday.  It is adorable!!!  We first thought it was a girl but now I think it is a boy.  I am 99% sure it is a boy.  We have a vet appointment on Tuesday for a checkup and we’ll then find out for sure.  

Lola is spoiled and is NOT happy with the kitten.  She spends her time hissing at the poor kitty.  We kept the kitten in my sister’s room this week.  However, yesterday he was able to roam around the apartment and simply would not stop.  He has so much energy!!  I had a name in mind (Luca) but now I am not so sure.  Now I am thinking Mateo?

Yesterday the kitten was enjoying Lola’s scratcher so I put it in my sister’s room because I know Lola wouldn’t want to use it anymore. (Lola hissed at me when she smelled the new kitten smell on me and for a few hours wanted nothing with me).  At Target I found the cutest scratcher that they can both use.  I mean eventually they would have to get along, right?  Haha, to them it is more of a toy.

Friday was an interesting day.  Well with it being Friday the 13th and a full moon, I was expecting the worst.  Not really.  It went better than expected.  My kids had to take a MAP test in Math and we were done in about 1 hour and 20 minutes.  Then we spent the rest of the day taking more tests (spelling, reading, and math), some fun time, and then watched part of a movie.

With the new TV I also purchased a new DVD player.  Earlier this morning I watched “La Llorona” and even though I was scared, I liked it!  I remember as a kid my sister telling me the story.  Next we are going to watch “Aladdin”.  

Not so much an exciting week.  🙂  I am going to try running tomorrow and see how it goes.  I have a half marathon next month!  How was your week?

Weekly Run Down: Room set up and it is here

I spent 2 days setting up my classroom and was exhausted!  My classroom is ready.  I just need a few more things to finish up like labeling their lockers, mailbox, job responsibilities, etc., but I will be ready on August 26th.  We have two Institute days and they students’ first day is on the 28th.

My Peloton bike was delivered on Tuesday afternoon.  Isn’t it beautiful?  Even Lola is checking it out.  I thought the bike would have toe cages like the ones at the gym and I would be able to use my running shoes.  Wrong!  After going back and forth with a few people that also own a bike, they convinced me to get cycling shoes.  Thanks Amazon for the fast delivery!  It took me some time to figure out how to clip in and out.  🙂  

This week I ran 3 days for a total of 11 miles.  Tuesday was a planned rest day but then woke up very tired on Wednesday and Thursday so I decided to rest those days too.  I made a mistake and thought my mother had a doctor appointment on Friday.  Nope, her appointment was on Thursday.  I was angry because I couldn’t believe I made that mistake.  Ugh, the next available time slot isn’t till September 16th.  

The plan on Saturday was to run 8.5 miles.  I had a great run last week and really thought I could have another great one yesterday.  It was humid and I wasn’t feeling it.  I did enjoy running along the lakefront and seeing many friends.

This morning I did my first Peloton ride.  It was 20 minutes Glaciers & Rocks Scenic Ride.  It was fun and I was very sweaty at the end.  I need to buy a small fan to have nearby.

So that was my week.  I didn’t do much running but I am OK with it.  This week should be less hectic so I am hoping to run more days.
