Hi all! I hope you had a great week.
I had another week where I was a inconsistent in my training. I’ve found that in the mornings, I sit on the couch with some coffee and then I don’t want to get up off the couch. This week, I’m going to try not sitting on the couch until my workout is complete!
This week, I did one cross training day (45 minutes stationary bike), a three mile run at 10:35 pace, and a long run of 8 miles at 11:17 pace (last two miles at 10:49 pace). The good news is that all three workouts felt great, it just took a lot of motivation to get out there. I’m going to remind myself of this later this week when I am lacking motivation. I am also reminding myself of the people who cannot run who are fighting cancer. I bought myself a NYC Marathon hat, and wore it on my long run!
I did some shopping on Saturday and found a dress for Christina’s wedding for only $14 at Ross!! I always forget about that store and always find dresses there. I also got this really cool lamp for my home office.
In other news, I kicked off my fundraising, though I am STILL making hats. I got so many orders last month and I really underestimated how long it would take to make them all! I still have about 7 to make, I’m hoping to knock most of them out this week.
So far, I’ve raised $766 of my total goal of $10,000!! I’m thrilled with the progress but hope to keep the momentum going. I’ve sent out a bunch of emails, and plan to continue to send around 50 a week. It’s taking a lot of work, but I’m keeping at it. More to come soon.
In the meantime, if you would like to make a donation, you can visit my participants page here.
