Hello, Friday! Amazing how much I appreciate you every time you come around. My low back had stabbing pain most of yesterday so I took it easy other than a little yoga and a walk. It's a good reminder to honor rest days. They are vital to continue running strong and healthy, whether I like it or not.
This weekend, I'm hoping to do some easy running with a few miles of trail if the back will allow. On Sunday, the manfriend and I are hoping to ride a local highway (242) that is closed to traffic for a few weeks and involves lots (22 mi) of climbing. We'll see if I survive...
I've been snapping photos regularly so I thought it would be fun to include photos of the last week (or so).
Last Friday after work, the manfriend and I went to the Prefontaine Classic early races and stayed to see the Kenyan Olympic Trials 10,000m race. It was a pretty awesome 27 minutes.
Finally got my I <3 Sweat shirt after stalking Ali's blog/facebook for them for a while. #worthit
The typical state of our coffee table. Organized we are not.
I busted out the new trail shoes for Monday's run - felt good on trail, so so on pavement.
I'm just hoping the sunshine shows up for good when the Olympic Trials roll into town in two weeks.
Tuesday night, the manfriend had his first criterium race of the season. Summer is on the way!
So for those of you experiencing summer weather, humor me with what you're doing to enjoy the sun this weekend. I'm more than ready for nights of grilling, bike dates and enjoying dinner and a beer outside.
