Upcoming Runs & Random Thoughts

So happy for Spring!
It's been a few weeks since I've posted...in that time, I've been busy training clients, trying to fill my own training log, and starting another business as an Independent Biltmore Inspirations Consultant. I'm really excited about that! I've also registered for the Philly Marathon again...can't wait for November, 2012!

I was thinking how running seems to go in cycles, kind of like life. For instance, two weeks ago, I felt great, had great runs everyday, even did a 13 miler out of the blue with some friends. This week? I can't be bothered! I haven't run since Saturday...well that's not true. I did try to run this morning and couldn't get past 2 miles. I walked this week instead and guess what? It felt really good. I haven't felt that runner's guilt this week like I normally do. I was perfectly content with walking! I also added in my weight training a few days this week. The thing is, I know that next week I'll be back to normal, so I'm not stressing about it too much (It may also be that time of the month...I usually have no energy the week before).

I'm in love with my new compression socks!

More exciting news...next month, I'll be on my way to San Diego for a whole week to visit my brother. During that time, we will run a Navy four-miler across the Coronado Bay Bridge. I'm really excited to be able to run with my brother, whom I haven't seen in a very long time. He has also asked me to lead a PT session for himself & the guys on his ship! How exciting! He says they need a running coach :) I will definitely be posting with pictures!!

My goal this week: Do an actual pull-up (at least one...like a full, complete pull-up :) Wish me luck!
