This week has just flown by! It's already Friday and I feel like I just woke up and it was Monday morning! Thank god for weeks like this!
As fast as the week went by, it wasn't without its challenges. I found myself telling myself over and over to mentally be tough. My workouts were challenging, work has been difficult and as positive as I am, I felt like all week I was working on my game face and just plugging away. Not to get into too much detail, but I have a co-worker, well, receptionist, who has the attitude of a six year old. Nothing is ever her fault, she has a remark and comment for everything, and takes pleasure in being just plain rude. So, I had to deal with that this week on top of feeling like crud. I treat everyone with the same respect and hope it comes back in return. I guess in a way I am a bit naive.
Tonight some of my best BFF's and I are heading out to dinner together. But before that I have fun 8 mile tempo run all planned for me and the dreadmill. Running has been just plugging along, ticking off the miles on my schedule. With my strep throat I am not sure the quality of my workouts this week, but I got my miles in and I am feeling a ton better for the weekend.
Tomorrow my cousin Sarah and I are meeting up so that I can pace her for her first 7 mile run! Her longest distance yet! I am super stoked about this, as we are heading to one of my most favorite trails. She is going to do awesome - let's just hope those shin splints stay at bay! When I'm done with Sarah, I'm heading home to tack on some extra miles to get my legs good and tired again for my long run on Sunday. I have a scale back week of 18 so after last week this sounds like a piece of cake! No other big plans as the weather has decided to go back to gloomy. It's going to rain all weekend so if anything that will mean lots of couch time in front of the TV watching the Olympics! I have been so wrapped up in them! I am always so sad when they're over with!
To all you peeps with races this weekend, especially the Redhead, Jill and Jess good luck, you're gonna rock it! And to all my peeps tackling the long run like me this weekend, run strong and enjoy it!
