This week was SO much fun! I got to do some exploring at home and in Cleveland, Ohio! While my training plan looks crazy from all the rearranging (I printed it out and stuck it on the fridge--think arrows everywhere) I'm proud to say that all of my runs are getting done!
Monday: 6 miles at the park. This was supposed to happen in week 4, but I'm glad I waited. This was not an easy run, but looking back at my last training cycle my last 6 mile run wasn't easy either! It helped to look back and know that things started looking up last time. Gives me hope that this go around will eventually get easier, too!
Wednesday: 5 miles on the 'mill. The weather kind of sucked and I had a bazillion things I had to do, so no time for going away from home.
Thursday: 45 minute run on the new trail! Maddux and I finally explored the park I drove by a few months ago. We had a great walk and I'm so excited to have another place to regularly walk and run.
Friday: I made the drive over to Ohio and there was a circus going on in my sister's little town. We didn't attend the circus, but we did have the chance to see the elephants get a bath! It was a really neat experience. After our walk to see the elephants, my sister and I headed to see Sara Bareilles! It was a great time, but I was worn out at the end of the day!
Saturday: 3 mile run in Ohio! Yep, another state checked off! My sister took me to one of her favorite parks and walked her pup while I ran. It was nice stretching my legs after sitting in the car so long the day before. We headed to watch an Indians game in the afternoon and got to walk around Cleveland a little bit. It's a really cool city and I can't wait to go back!
Sunday: My sister and I walked to get delicious donuts from a shop that's been around since the 1930s. After finally watching Frozen together, we headed to another great park near her house to get one last leg stretch in before my ride home. The weekend went by way too fast! It helped knowing that I will see her towards the end of the month! We are meeting at our parents' house for more family fun!
Total Miles for the Week: 18.6
Total Training Plan Miles: 82.45
