I have been so bad about taking pictures lately. I don’t like lugging my dSLR camera around everywhere I go, so not many pictures get taken. And since I’m old-school and don’t have a smart phone, no pictures get taken on my phone either. This means there’s not a whole lot to recap as I like having a lot of pictures in a post, but here are a few random pictures of the boys who fill my heart with so much love these days.
Look at those teeth! (Cullen’s not Craig’s.)
I really didn’t want to take this picture, but I have to admit it is kind of funny.
Craig was having fun playing dress-up with Cullen.
It was a good week of running–50 miles and 4.5 months postpartum, I definitely can’t complain about that. In hindsight, I guess I would have been okay to run Boston this year. Oh well. I didn’t know how my recovery would go, and since I was almost 8 months pregnant when registration occurred, I didn’t want to take my chances. Here’s a recap of how my workouts went this past week.
Workouts for March 9 – 15, 2015
Tempo run on the treadmill: 10 minutes @ 7:15 pace, 10 minutes @ 7:00, 10 minutes @ 6:45 (3 minutes recovery jog in between the sets). I felt awesome during this workout. Although, when I was running the 6:45 pace, I kept thinking, “Oh my gosh, if I want to break 3 hours in the marathon, this would nearly have to be my pace for the whole 26.2 miles. Yeesh! I’m never going to be able to do that!”
7 miles | 58:00 | 8:30 average
Early morning run. Definitely tired from yesterday’s workout, but the roads were clear of snow and ice.
I also did yoga for 45 minutes and lifted at the gym for 30 minutes.
7 x 800 meters
Splits – 3:09, 3:10, 3:08, 3:09, 3:11, 3:06, 3:08
Speed workout at the Dome (our indoor track here in town). The workout went well. I am sure I could have went faster if I would have had someone pushing me. I was still satisfied with my splits though.
Easy run on the treadmill.
15 miles | 2:03 | 8:13
This went really well despite the temps being below zero. But the pavement was dry, which makes me a happy camper. I picked up the pace during the last 4 miles and was surprised at how strong I still felt.
Easy run in the afternoon. I can feel the effect from yesterday’s workout when walking around, but I didn’t have any discomfort while running.
Total: 50 miles
