Last week, I attended a really awesome event. My favorite running store, Performance Running Outfitters, and Oiselle, teamed up to host a Ladies Night!
The evening started with a 3-mile fun run. After everyone was back in the store, the local Oiselle sales rep, Cindi, showed off the Spring 2014 and Fall 2014 line. Lots of cute apparel - although I already own a lot of the Spring line, I can't wait to get my hands on the Fall stuff when it's available at PRO or online.
It's events like this one that get me re-excited about running! PRO hosts fun runs every Thursday at 6pm at both the Brookfield and Shorewood store locations and I definitely recommend checking them out. Lots of fun and a great way to connect with fellow runners.
Believe it or not, another race week is here. On Saturday, I'm racing the Hot Chocolate 5k in Minneapolis - part of a visit with my brother, Joe. Like my last race, this one isn't a goal race but that's not to say I don't care how I run. I ALWAYS care and will do my best to run according to the plan from Coach Matt.
Here's this week's plan:
Monday: 4 miles + strides; Y-Kettle Bell Intervals Class
Tuesday: 6 mile workout, including 4x800m @goal 5k pace
Wednesday: 4 miles
Thursday: Rest Day
Friday: 4 miles + strides
Saturday: Hot Chocolate 5k!! (Plus w/u and c/d miles)
Sunday: 7 miles
Total: 32 miles
A lower mileage week, but I'm looking forward to resting my legs for this weekend and also for a final push before my goal May races!
Tell me: What gets you excited about running or working out?
On a side note, I finally got the results from the Winter Series - I ended up placing 3rd AG for the series!
