Week In Review; February 11-17
Saturday: Met up with a bunch of runners for a 4.5 mile group run. Was supposed to be 5, but my friend and I missed a turn. Ooops! I really pushed it on this run, and definitely felt it in my legs the rest of the day!
Sunday: Swam 1000 meters. Was feeling pretty exhausted, but wanted to get something in. Took it easy on my legs and made good use of the pull buoy.
Monday: 856 group run. We have two a month and I really look forward to them. It’s a simple 3 mile out and back, but always a good time with friends, even when it is super cold!
Tuesday: Swam 1800 meters. Did a mix up of kick board and buoy with freestyle sprints.
Wednesday: Weekly Cooper River Run. It’s a 3.5 mile loop, but I always get a little extra because we don’t let anyone finish alone! This was the windiest and coldest 4.5 miles of my life!
Thursday: Swam 1400 meters…and then…spinning! Back in the saddle on that one!
Friday: Planned Rest Day
Weekly High: Pushing through the Wed night run. I wanted to turn around and stop countless times.
Weekly Low: My cousin suddenly passed away this week. It’s been a crushing couple of days.
Three things I am grateful for this week:
- The Cooper Run my friend Meghan and I started. I love this run- I wish runs like this had been around when I was starting out. We never let anyone finish alone. It’s a great concept and we are gaining in numbers!
- Having exercise as a form of therapy. I have had a pretty stressful month and with the emotions of this week tied in, I felt really overwhelmed. I am thankful to have exercise back in my life, because it really does help me cope.
- It is now light out on my way to work! Soon it will be light out when I leave. Spring is on the way!!!!

There are days when I am happy to spend a few hour
