Hello again! I hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend and were able to spend some time outside, racing, running or relaxing …
I always look forward to linking up with Tara for her Weekend Update on Running N Reading and today is no exception. This post is a little later than normal, but I’m so excited to share our weekend with you :)
Sunday morning was an absolutely fantastic time to run. We met a little later than a typical weekday run and were treated to one of the brightest and most colorful sunrises I have seen in a while.
I would run 6 miles every single morning if I could guarantee this view during my run :) No filter needed … no kidding!
I am thrilled to report it was warm enough to unearth my favorite running shorts from the depths of my closet and … GREEN grass! I joked that our shoes look like Easter eggs in this picture. I know I give a lot of love to my Brooks PureFlows, but Annette loves her Asics Kayanos and Geri was rocking her Newtons.
This morning was another small victory for one of our girls on the Injury Report.
On doctor’s orders, Summer has been off for more than three weeks, but was cleared to try one mile with us this morning. One. So we ran a mile then walked a mile back … pain free and fabulous!
Training season is always hard, especially through the winter when you love to run outside. The snow and ice can unknowingly cause a slight change in your gait (as I try my best to not land on flat on my face … or my backside). Without extra attention to stretching, foam rolling and cross training, even a slight shift can cause pulls and strains or worse.
This time of year always comes with some adjustments and we are happy to see some of our girls on the mend! :) And of course, we had to celebrate the best way we know how to at dark-thirty!
