Back in Training Mode

Sunday night already?! Awwww man.

It's 9:15pm and I'm already in bed - a sign of a busy weekend, for sure! And a weekend that involved a few too many indulgences....

These 2 talked me into donuts after swim class...

But it also involved a fair amount of running, so that cancels out all those calories, right? (Just mid and smile...)

Anyway.... I totally forgot to mention last week that I started training again! Week one of training for the Atlanta Half Marathon is in the books.

I adjusted my trainjng schedule for this go 'round. Instead of running Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, I'm running Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday (like I did last fall). Saturday is still my long run day, and I'm hoping that only running 2 days during the work week will make life feel a little less hectic.

I was up and at 'em early on Saturday for my long run, since daddy had to take off for work at 6:50 am, and wasn't going to be home until almost 5 pm. I got out of bed at 5:20, changed, stretch for a few minutes, and then was out the door, intending to do 6 miles.

Oops. I overshot.

It wasn't really a great run - I'm having problems with my left hip flexor / lower back, and I had a really hard time getting loose. And if I'm being honest, I was in pain pretty much the entire time. Ugh.

Oddly enough though, I ran again today (Sunday is now my short run day) and I felt great! Ran much faster and witjout much discomfort. Probably because I was up for quite a while before running, and had a chance to warm up my muscles...?

I closed out my active weekend with a 3:00 pm Pure Barre class. And it was a good one! I'll be feeling it in my "seat" tomorrow!

I'll leave you with a couple highlights from the weekend:

One-on-one time with my Big Girl at my Pure Barre studio's 1 year anniversary party

One-on-one time, snuggling with my Baby Girl

What was the highlight of your weekend!
