Sunday | April 20, 2014: rest (including some walking)
- Looking at my training logs, I have not done a solo run since March 17th! That is nutso! I sure feel lucky to have so many people to run with, at many different times (and sometimes, paces)!
- I can’t decide if I want to include walking in my recaps or not. Sometimes I end up walking a lot if I am downtown, but don’t include it, but would if I was walking that amount around my neighborhood. If that makes any sense. This week I did track how much I walked downtown Chicago and it was over 3 miles (non typical day – my walking commute isn’t always like that). I am sure it will be back and forth from week to week.
- I’m coming up on potentially 6 weekends in a row of races (not signed up for all of them yet), and most of them are with friends! Fun, fun, fun!
