Moving forward

My mom told me yesterday that she was sad I wasn’t blogging anymore, and that I should keep doing it, so I will.

She is dealing with a health challenge that, at the time I wrote this post, had me so sad and mad and scared that I had nothing good to say about anything, so I chose not to say anything at all for a bit.

Now that we know more about the situation, I’m thrilled to say that everything looks very positive and I have nothing but hope and good expectations for the future.

The next several months won’t be fun, for sure, but the road to anywhere worth going is never smooth. All I can do now is be loving, supportive, and optimistic, and keep on living life.

So, with all that said, you didn’t miss much of my training. Last week was an “off” week for sure, since I took three days completely off, skipped all strength-training and cross-training, and only did two runs for a total of 14 miles. They were great runs, though.

Five miles on Thursday:

Nine miles on Saturday:

That is a stupid-fast pace for a long run, but I felt great so I don’t care.

I think my legs appreciated the rest they got last week and are ready to take on this coming week in full beastmode.
