If your week has been anything like mine, you’ve been finding every way possible to take advantage of absolutely gorgeous weather! Over the weekend I spent more time outside than inside, and I couldn’t have asked for better weather to kick off my much needed Spring Break with. Both Saturday and Sunday it was sunny, in the 80s, and very low humidity. The weather for the rest of the week isn’t supposed to be as warm as its been this past weekend, but since we’re not traveling this year for Spring Break you can bet that I’ll be outside every possible moment that the weather allows me to and taking advantage of the gorgeous Spring weather as much as I can.
We spent all day Saturday downtown on the National Mall. The Cherry Blossoms hit their peak bloom on Thursday, and we were fortunate to be able to enjoy the blossoms Saturday morning. Then, Saturday afternoon we participated in the Run As One with Team Red, White and Blue, which I’ll fully recap tomorrow. Sunday I spent about an hour outside on a local trail, completing my first “long” run (“long” being 3.84 miles) since last weekend’s Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run.

With not having to work this week, my goal is to be active every single day. When the weather allows, I’ll be outside running and walking, and when it doesn’t I’ll be inside at the gym. Between this goal, as well as working towards my monthly goals, this week seems like the perfect time to add another component to my weekly training log: Monday Motivation.
As we kick off another week, let me leave you with my first Monday Motivation here on the blog. The absolutely gorgeous weather that we’ve had here in the DC area inspired my choice for this week’s motivating quote.
