Although, I'm excited about Chey starting school, I am also extremely stressed about finding an afforadable before and/or after school program or if I can find a friend who would be willing to work with me that would be even better. I know we will figure it out, but I just want this to be an easy transition.
New Run Buddy:
Last week, I had a high mileage week. This is the first time I peaked at 40 miles since Cowtown Ultra, back in Feb.
Sunday, I met a new running friend for a short 3 mile recovery run. She lives in my neighborhood. Her background is mainly triathlons…like ironman (the full, not sprint). Our pace is not the same, she runs like 12-14 min. miles, but I think running with her will be great for recovery runs. So, that's what we did. I woke up early Sunday and ran 4 miles solo, before meeting her for 3 miles at a conservative pace.
There's another girl in my neighborhood who reached out to me about running shorter runs during the week. She also does triathlons, but I think she's closer to my running pace. I hope we get to run together soon!
