Three Things Thursday

by - Thursday, April 21, 2011

Happy Thursday! Just a few quick training and life updates today!

1. I'm heading home to Allentown tonight for Easter and I'm insanely excited. It will be my first time back to PA since Christmas! I can't believe it's been that long, but between races, vacations, wedding showers and baby showers, I feel like my weekends have been crazy busy and I just haven't been able to carve out a minute to get back home. It'll be good to see the fam!

2. Yesterday I slept in a little bit and headed out for my run around 6 a.m. It was a beautiful day for a run and running while the sun was coming up reminded me of all the training runs I used to do in college at 6 a.m., a time my friends couldn't even fathom being awake at, let alone being up and running. I miss those runs. There was just enough light so that it wasn't creepy and you could see where you were going, but it was still pretty quiet. And nothing beats watching the sun rise while you're running. Now if I want to run before work it's at 4:30 a.m. in the dark.

3. I can't believe the Frederick Half marathon is only two weeks away! Where the heck has this spring gone? I feel like this training cycle has come and gone in the blink of an eye. About half way through I made some tweaks to my training plan that made it easier to fit in with my schedule and I'm liking the new plan much better. I'm still doing the same workouts each week, I just shuffled which days they were on. I'm excited for the race and want it to hurry up and get here!
