Monday: Rest day. Thank you tart cherry juice for helping me recover a little bit better. My wonky hip felt one thousand times better since I sat and foam rolled
Tuesday: Speed work. This one was fun but hard. 10 minute warm up, 6 minutes (9-9:20) and 2 minute recovery x 5 with a 10 minute cool down. Since the time change had both Melly and I exhausted, we decided to run post work. Something came up for Melly, so Deuce and I headed out solo. Even though I entered the paces in my garmin, I honestly didn't pay attention to the fact that coach had slightly slid the pace down below what we had been targeting. When I settled into my first interval, my watch started screaming at me to speed up. WHAT? Dang it, I had to get it under 9:20. I fought and fought and got each one under and somehow averaged 9:14 on all 5. 5.56 miles traveled. I did walk one minute of the two minute recoveries just to catch my breath.

Thursday: 6 miles. Day light savings time is kicking my butt. I am not even joking. That and my hubby was up late coughing and snotting, as he and the kiddo have a little cold. Either way, when the alarm clock went off at 4:20, I was like big nope. The good news was, it is suppose to be low 70s later, so Mel and I got to enjoy some warm temps and some sunshine, versus the cold temps when we wake up. Silver lining right? Sometimes seeing a sunset is nice for a change.
Friday: Strength and or cross training. Chasing little red around the park is cross training right? Ended up taking stella for a nice long walk post sunset. Downtown Wamego was bustling with life, with even a live band playing in one of the bars. Stella got lots of love from bar patrons out smoking, and we got to hear some good music!
Saturday: 6 miles. Had planned on doing my long run, but hubby had to work, so had to switch things around. Decided since the weather was going to be so nice, that we had to go on an adventure. Since we had been watching the giraffe on youtube, waiting on April to give birth, I wanted andrew to see a real baby giraffe and BONUS, they had a new baby at the Rolling Hill's Zoo. Off to Salina we went!
