minor happenings

Now that I don't have a marathon to train for I don't have much to blog about ;) My first run back was last Friday. It should have been sooner per an arbitrary recovery schedule but seriously I couldn't even walk to the bathroom how was I to run?!? The hubby joined me on my 4 mile jaunt. He kicked my butt and that's the farthest he has gone in almost a year! My quads were on fire but it felt great to be outside shuffling err running again. I kicked it up to 5 miles Sunday afternoon and Monday afternoon before my flight. Both were very pleasant thanks to the slight warm-up outside. If only it could stay in the 50's and 60's the rest of winter ;)

Over the weekend I had big plans to get a lot of projects done around the house. Instead I slept in late (hello noon o'clock!) and wasted a lot of time either running errands or laying around the house. It was wonderful because I can't tell you the last time I was able to sleep like that on a weekend! Although honestly I didn't know what to do with myself not having a long run. I missed it!

I'm in Texas this week for work and that means 3 things. 1) little running because cross-training is just easier when on the road and there is no schedule to follow 2) I'm going to need a good run when I get home b/c I already know Tuesday's visit is going to be long and frustrating, no getting around it and 3) Outlet shopping! Nike here I come!

Have fun at Nike!!! You'll really be itching to get a good run in when you get back with new gear!

My hubby started running too and the first one I did after my race he kicked my butt, also the longest distance he had done :)

That sounds like a perfect post-marathon weekend to me. You earned it!

Sometimes its nice to have those relaxing weekends where you don't have to worry about a long run and you can sleep til noon!

oooh Nike outlet. Jealous! I always end up looking like a Nike poster child for weeks after I shop. I love new running garb.

I get mad at the Nike outlet in Aurora. Seems like all the Womens stuff is regular priced and there are about 5 items of actual outlet stuff. I go in there every time, but walk out with a bunch of stuff for my hubby and nothing for me :( It's truly depressing.
