1. Going on Day 11 with this “cold” over here and it is stubornly hanging on. Thankfully I feel okay and my energy level is mostly normal, but the cough and runny/stuffy nose will not subside. The only time I feel true relief is after a great snot rocket on a run. Nothing clears you out like that! I’ve been able to train, but keeping all of my workouts on the easy side until I am 100% recovered.
2. Tonight is the first night of the Marathon Clinic that I am co-coaching for the next 18 weeks. We have 33 people signed up so far and about 20 more expected, including the “vets” and some newbies too – this should be a great group! I’m excited to kick things off with intros and a meet-and-greet run tonight. Moving forward we will be doing speed work on Thursdays, because it’s always more fun to suffer with company!
3. Last weekend we did something that should have been done long ago – donated our worn-out running shoes! I have no idea why we held on to them for so long, but here is what 3-4 years of running looks like:
Happy Thursday (almost Friday!)
