|Finally got my free photos from the Andrew Jackson Marathon! How cool!|
Monday: Rest day. No track club so grocery shopping it is.
|Who puts a giant hill (behind me) at the finish line? Mean RDs that is who!|
Tuesday: 5 miles and track club. I am having SO much fun helping with track club. While andrew wasn't really feeling well and didn't want to run, he did do a few sprints with me on the track and did the cool down. I am not pushing him, he isn't old enough to do the track meets anyway, so we are just going to focus on going, trying the events and finding what he likes. As always, we took our easy miles easy. Miss stella ella and deucey doo ran with us, and we had an hour talking session.

|Crossing the finish mat to head out on my next loop. I looked confused because no one was telling me where to go.|
Thursday: 6 miles planned. Ended up doing 5 because I got in around 2 miles at track club with the kiddos. Trying to take it easy and get to this ultra pain and injury free.
Friday: Cross-training. Taking stella to the vet. Falling temps and not feeling so hot thanks to this cold andrew shared. Another rest day. Stella got a glowing report, tapering down on her immunosuppressants, possibly tapering her enalapril, and keeping up her apoquel even if it means loosing her coat. We would rather have a healthy and happy nakey puppy than a full haired not so happy puppy.
Saturday: Long run with Rocking Robin=9 easy miles. We are going to run the Bill Snyder half marathon together and I am SO excited!!!! Not sure how I will feel post ultra, but I am not running this race to race it anyway. Going to take it easy and enjoy it and get my first power cat medal! I finally feel like my legs are back to feeling good, but my dang hip is still being goofy. Lots of stretching and foam rolling for me for sure. We also had the Tulip Festival a block from my house. Right now, most of my festival going time is spent at the bouncy houses and I am fine with that. Less money spent right? We ended up mining for rocks in the sluice tent, eating some tasty festival food, having a tall grass beer, and picking up a new photograph from our favorite photographer.
Sunday: Tulip festival take 2 or should I say bouncy house day take 2. Luckily they put them down one street, so we could sit at our little local bakery/eatery and eat and rest while they bounce. Now if we could just move the beer garden to this side of the road:).
