Hello there! I am late to the party and had no idea that the weekly link up hosted by Holly and Wendy was retired, but excited that Kim and Deborah have decided to keep it going with hosting a “new” weekly link up! I am hoping to post regularly here and read about everyone’s week.
I can’t believe that we’re already in March! Glad that February is behind us and hopefully the nasty, cold weather we’ve been having here in the Midwest will go away. I am actually pretty tired of it. Unfortunately, the cold weather got to me and I missed so many runs because I didn’t want to deal with the cold weather. I mean, I am sort of OK with running in cold weather (and actually wrote a post on my essentials) but it was just too much for me.
I have a few races coming up and realized that I needed to get out of this funk and start running again. I signed up to train again with Mary and am excited about it. She is so patient with me and I love working with her.
In order to get ready for a new training cycle with Mary, I decided to start “new” with running shoes. I had 4 new pairs of the Brooks Launch 5 and sent them back to Running Warehouse. Currently I have a pair of the Brooks Ghost 11, a pair of the Launch 5, and recently received the Brooks Launch 6. I am thinking of buying the Glycerin 17. That is 4 pairs in rotation. Too many or not enough? 🙂
This week was kind of blah for me. Still no running (only ran 4 miles on Saturday) but kept busy at school. I had parent/teacher conferences on Tuesday. I have 21 students and was able to see 17 parents. I rarely wear heels to work (I am more of a Tieks girl) but somehow decided to wear boots on Tuesday. Big mistake. My feet were hurting by the time I got to school and had to wear gym shoes when I wasn’t meeting with parents. Not pretty but at least I was comfortable.
This Monday is the beginning of a RunBet hosted by Deborah. Have you signed up? My goal is not just to win money, but NOT to lose any money. 🙂 That means I need to run 4 times each week for the month of March. If interested, sign up HERE.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
