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.
Gorgeous 3D Paper Tulip Flower Craft
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.
Congrats on your race, and meting your goal 😉 I love that tulip project, those look great! Thanks for linking with us 😉
Thanks! It was fun but lots of work. They are getting better at it.
I used to love doing those little crafts with my kids when they were younger. Congrats on hitting your goal today! Looks like it was a cold morning
Thanks! It wasn’t too cold. I did warm up and was sweating but then got cold again.
I”m so glad I found you today at the race! Congrats on a strong finish. You’re speedy, getting those photos in your post already. I probably won’t recap until next week.
Me too! So fun seeing you before and after the race. I had my post ready to go but just wanted a few pictures from the race.
omg I love mole…
I use Canva sometimes, I really like it. I also use adobe spark, you should check it out 🙂
seems like you had a good week and a great race! must have been kitty who was giving your outfit some love the night before.
super nice you also met up with friends, including Wendy!
Thanks! I have to check out Adobe Spark. Thanks for the recommendation.
Looks like a solid week! Glad you felt better Tuesday after a little extra rest. Yay on the fun race!
Thanks! I guess sometimes I just need more sleep.
What a fun craft day with the students! Congrats on the Shuffle, I ran it too and the weather was perfect!
Congrats to you too!
I love the Canva color palette
I’m a sucker for the sparkly soul headbans
Aren’t the headbands great? I have quite a collection. Whenever I see them at an expo, I have to think really hard and remember as to whether or not I already have that color.
Yes! Last year I was glad they were at the Women’s 10K finish because I needed one for Pride a couple weks later
I like the way that you are displaying your weekly running and workouts (and love the colors too). Glad to hear that the race went well today!
Thanks Kim! I love the colors too. It is so easy to make so I guess I will continue adding it to my post.
That tulip craft is so pretty and perfect for spring. I’m glad we ran into you at the race. The Shuffle is so large I doubted we’d see anyone. Hooray for no rain!
I was also happy it didn’t rain either. I agree that it is so large that I was not expecting to see anyone I knew, but luckily Wendy saw me and called out my name.
The tulip project sounds like a lot of fun. Great job on the race and all the workouts during the week 🙂
It’s always nice when you meet all your goals for a race! Looking forward to reading more about it.
I like the grahpic, btw.
Thank you! Yes, I just wanted to enjoy my rave. A PR would have been nice but I knew I was in no shape to get one.
What a fun race! I need to pick a Chicago run and plan a visit up there. Shamrock Shuffle would be great, but maybe I will find something at a more convenient time of year (March is the busiest race time around here, so hard to get away).
Love your graphics. Canva is the best.
Hope you can make it here! There are lots of fun races all year round.
Love the beautiful spring craft! Tulips are my favorite! Congrats on your race!
Thank you. I put the artwork on the bulletin board and received many compliments.
Congrats on the race! I usually go with shorts if it might rain because wet tights are miserable.
Thanks! That makes sense about the wet tights.
