Sunday: 10.25 miles in 74 minutes and this run just felt right and everything clicked! It was pretty windy and cold but I didn't care because running at the beach is my all time favorite! This also happens to be a part of the Rehoboth Beach Marathon course where I ran.
Monday: Worked Sunday night into Monday so after a quick nap I rode the Expresso Bike and did 11 miles of constant hills followed by the stairmonster for 30 minutes.
Tuesday: 9 mile run that looked like this... ran 4 miles of hills with max incline of 4% with a pace of 7:47 then switched gears and ran 4 miles of speed intervals ( 800 m repeats with 400 m RI ) and finished with 1 recovery mile.
After my workout Nicole, Shirley and I loaded up and went to PA to go to our Annual Harrisburg PA Craft Show! We have been doing this for, oh my goodness, 11-12 years now and always have the greatest time! This is something us girls look forward to every year and we always have a feast of steak, salad, potatoes with cheese sauce and crab legs at Aunt Patty's house when we get there. If you are in PA or close by I highly recommend going to this craft show it is amazing and has such great finds.

Wednesday: Craft Shower power walking!
Thursday: 8 mile run in 62 minutes with a average pace of 7:45...this was a rough day for me and I just laced up and hit the road. It is amazing how running can be so therapeutic. I got called into work and worked 12 hours on midnight shift and had the nicest patient who reminded me why I love my job!
Friday: 5.2 miles in 38 minutes followed by some much needed leg lifting! I tend to get so focused on my running and cardio and sometimes slack off on the weights. This reminded me today that I HAVE to start back up with 2 x a week of lifting!! My hamstrings are practically non existent and were screaming after 2 sets of weights! Oh boy!
