March, already!? This year is already flying by! This past weekend was a pretty good mix of activity and inactivity. It started with a race on Saturday morning: the Explore Your Limits 10K trail race in Roanoke. It was a balmy 15 degrees at the start, which actually didn’t feel so bad compared to the weather lately. The trail conditions were really tough, with deep snow covering most of the trail. I wish I had been better prepared. Unfortunately, I ended up dropping from the 10K to the 5K midrace. It was the right decision, but I still wasn’t thrilled about it. Full details on Wednesday.
Once we got home from the race, I made a delicious breakfast: a spinach, tomato, and feta omelet. Yum! I spent most of the rest of the day catching up on some of our DVR’ed shows with Barry. We record a lot of shows, but we’re not very good about watching them. Case in point: we spent much of the day watching episodes that were recorded last October. Oops.
Yesterday started out with another spinach omelet. I couldn’t get enough this weekend! Then I spent some time doing a handful of chores around the house, and helping Barry watch more TV shows from the DVR. 🙂 In the evening, we both got in short runs on the roads around our house. I had debated whether or not to go for a run yesterday, and I’m glad I did.
It was 44 degrees outside, which felt downright hot compared to the weather lately. I got in 3 miles and it felt good to get my legs warmed up and stretch. My ankles, calves, and right hamstring were really sore from Saturday’s race.
I like this part after a handful of big snow storms: where the roads are clear but everything else is still covered. It’s really pretty, but at the same time it’s not a hindrance. But I’m also really ready for spring!
Who else has had enough of winter?
