Gooood Morning, and happy first Friday of Spring! Between returning from Utah, and family events, this week has flown by! I cannot wait to spend the weekend relaxing and catching up with friends! Before I get ahead of myself, let’s take a moment for Five Things Friday.
First, Runners High Is Real
I am still on a high from Canyonlands Half Marathon all I want to do is run and run and run! The only problem is that I want to run with tons of people and in beautiful scenery. It looks like I have some group runs in my future, woo!
Second, Links I Loved
I have always said that running is 70% mental, 30% physical. Kristen of Glitter and Dust wrote a fabulous, comprehensive article on one of the most , if not the most important aspect of physical activity, your mind!
I. Would. Die.
Words will never be able to express my extreme love of the Spice Girls. When they release their greatest hits CD, I absolutely trekked to Victoria’s Secret to buy it!
Third, 2014 Vacation Plans
Traveling is what motivates me. It’s what gets me out of bed in the morning. Having a trip on the horizon is a necessity in my world. I will happily sacrifice Starbucks drinks for plane tickets🙂
Where to visit this year has been weighing heavily on me. There are a lot of variables in my in my world right now that make planning almost impossible. Despite that, I think I have settled on a location, two places I have not been in years, Sante Fe New Mexico, and Durango Colorado!
I have been dying to return to Santa Fe for the food, shopping, hiking, and food for a while now and have not been able to make it happen. I plan to make this year the year!
Fourth, March Madness… Gooooo Gators!
I was born and raised a college basketball fan. While my loyalties have shifted over the years (sorry I’m not sorry Dad) the month of March has always been a special one in our family. Living in ACC country for the past three tournaments has made is better than ever.
The best part? I get to watch the Gators allllll the way to the National Championship! (Ok, not if they keep playing like they did yesterday, phew!)
Finally, The Week In Fitness
Friday: 6 miles easy @ 8:19, arms
Thursday: 7 miles, easy @ 8:19, abs
Wednesday: 60 minutes elliptical, abs!
Tuesday: AM: 6 miles, super easy @ 8:27, arms
Sunday: 5 shakeout miles @ 8:22 average pace
It made me a bit nervous how difficult this pace felt. 8:00 was not hard to maintain, but it certainly wasn’t easy. Ahhhh well, One not so hot run, mean better are coming, right?🙂
Saturday: Canyonlands Half Marathon
What are your plans this weekend?
If it feeling like Spring where you live?
