Running Lately

I've been running a lot lately to be honest.

A lot for me at least, in fact, I ran almost 29 miles the week before last. That's quite a bit for me.

As you may know I'm running my first half marathon next month and I'm really trying to stick to my training plan and put in quality workout so that I'm confident and ready when I toe up to that start line.

That being said last week I only ran like 15. Why? I needed a cutback week. I felt my legs getting very tired and tight and I also had some pain in my left hip at the beginning of a run. I rested it over the weekend and really spent time stretching and foam rolling. I'm happy to say it definitely helped and now I feel stronger and more ready than ever to tackle the last weeks before my first half marathon!

Here's a few photos from some recent runs!

I ran 10 miles for my long run this week! Very little stopping/walking! I like that Sydney is in the picture.

It was snowing/raining one night and I had mascara that wasn't waterproof......nuff said.

It's been in the 50's-60's all week so that means shorts weather!! Today is supposed to be in the 70's....crazy for February in Pennsylvania.

When I run on the treadmill I get really really sweaty. My dogs have also started trying to see what happens if they put dog toys on the treadmill, so they have to be in their crates when I run now.

Anyways. I hope you are having great weeks and happy FriYAY!!!
