Although I used to dread speed workouts, yesterday I was beyond excited to get my legs turning over faster again. It was such a great feeling to pick up the pace and to feel good doing it! My 3:2 ratio for speed and recovery jog worked out perfectly for my first speed workout post-injury.
We had a blast celebrating James’ birthday yesterday. Since he goes to a cooperative preschool, I was scheduled to be the helping parent for the school day. We brought cupcakes, and James was so excited to get to wear his birthday crown during snack time. I asked him in the morning what he wanted for his birthday dinner, and he said “Thai food.” God I love this kid!! Maybe it was all the Thai food I ate when I was pregnant with him….Anyhow, the whole family was happy with his dinner choice, and we rounded out the day with some great Thai takeout.
This weekend will be a whirlwind with birthday party on Saturday and my sister flying in on Saturday evening. All fun, of course, but very busy!
Yesterday, I also kicked off my fundraising for team Running for Cover (I will be running the Falmouth Road Race). I am working on getting some cool prizes to raffle off for donors, so if you are so inclined, you can visit my fundraising page to make a donation.
Sometimes it’s easy to feel helpless when someone you love is battling a particularly deadly form of cancer. You keep wanting to help in any way you can. Running for team Running for Cover is my way of honoring John’s battle against melanoma. He is such a tough fighter and such a tremendously positive person, and I hope that I can raise a lot of money to help the Melanoma Foundation of New England continue to do the wonderful work they do for patients and their families.
What’s on tap for your weekend?
