Hello Monday! It was much cooler here in DC, so it made running more enjoyable this weekend 🙂 Before I start with my recap, congrats to Caitlin on finishing her first sprint triathlon at Monticelloman!
Monday 5/1 – Rest Day
Tuesday 5/2 – Rest Day
Still SUPER sore from the North Face Endurance Relay, took another rest day.
Wednesday 5/3 – 2 miles | 13:42 min/mile
It was a beautiful day for a run! I met a few co-workers after work for run club in Alexandria. I ran 2 miles while the rest of the group ran 4 miles. Overall my foot felt find and only went numb at the end. Time to throw out the shoes anyways.
Thursday 5/4 – Rest Day
Happy Quatro de Mayo 🙂 Met up with some of my friends at Tacqueria del Barrio in the Petworth neighborhood. The tacos and chips were tasty, but I still prefer Tacqueria Habanero and Mezcalero Cocina Mexicana on 14th Street. It was nice to get in an early (calm) celebration before Cinqo de Mayo.
Friday 5/5 – Rest Day
Saturday 5/6 – barre3 | 60 minutes
Had an awesome workout at Lindsey’s barre3 class. Tons of squat variations (sumo squats) and I was a sweaty mess.
Sunday 5/7 – 5.5 miles | 14:31 min/mile
Ran the Frederick Half Marathon Team Relay with my friend Emily (recap to come). I ran/walk the second half of the relay, which was about 5.5 miles. This was our second year running it and we had a 4 minute team PR 🙂 I wore new shoes, but my foot was numb from miles 2-4. I’m still puzzled. I will try a new lacing technique this week. If that does not work, I will follow up with a doctor.
Afterwards we met up with Kathleen at Family Meal for some brunch/lunch. If you are Top Chef fans, this is one of Bryan Voltaggio’s restaurants. The food was great and it was fun catching up. Kathleen just completed State #33 of her 50 State + DC challenge.
How was your week?
Did you race this past weekend?
