I am very happy to see the month change from February to March. While it is still cold out (DC had sleet/ice storm yesterday that left it very slippery out – be careful this morning), I am looking forward to warmer weather, spring races, and all other outdoor activities that come with it.
Monday 2/23 – Rest day
Tuesday 2/24 – 1/2 mile + 60 minutes personal training
Wednesday 2/25 – Rest day
Thursday 2/26 – 60 minute sports massage
Friday 2/27 – 1.5 miles
Saturday 2/28 – 8 miles and change
Sunday 3/1 – St. Pat’s 5K and 10K and change
Total: 19.3 miles
I am happy to see my total mileage increase from last week. I hope I will be able to maintain this week to week (ideally I would like to get back to a consistent 20-30 mpw). The past couple of work weeks have left me fatigued – I go home and fall asleep immediately. I am hoping I could adjust my schedule a bit so I do not miss a planned workout (last week it was yoga).
On Friday night I enjoyed a nice dinner in with Cliff and we watched a few episodes of House of Cards. I was a bit exhausted from the week and fell asleep during the second episode. The next morning I met my friend Rachel for an 8 miler. It was cold out, but luckily the trails were clear. While not the easiest of runs, this was certainly the highlight of the week (fitness wise).
Oh you know… the runner shoe/leg shot.
Later that night I had a Gilt City voucher for Lost Society. Overall the meal was good and we split a Nutella S’More for dessert. It was so rich, I only managed a few (large) bites 🙂

The next morning, after checking if the 5K and 10K were still on, I headed to the mall for the St. Pat’s Double.
Luckily I was able to meet up with Kathryn before the race and we were able to catch up during the 5K.
Later that evening, we headed to my parent’s house for New Years Dinner Part 2. Some of my favorites:
With a few lucky envelopes.
Today I am linking up with Tara at Running n’ Reading for her Weekend Update. Congrats to Tara on finishing marathon #2!
How was your weekend?
Did you run outside? Or take it indoors?
