Another busy week has come to an end! I spent the week working on the second half of my annual summer curriculum project, and more importantly, Preston and I celebrated our third anniversary! Our anniversary was on Wednesday, and to celebrate, we went out to dinner Saturday evening. We’ll also be spending this coming weekend in Charlottesville and will continue celebrating while there.
This week marked another milestone in my half marathon training: I’m only one double digit run away from race day! I logged some heavy miles last week, and my sore legs are definitely looking forward to a bit less running this coming week. Maybe it’ll be a good time for me to make yoga a high priority, especially since it’ll help my sore muscles and its one of my monthly goals.

Tues 7/29 – 3.10 mile treadmill run, 0.45 mile cool down walk, kettlebell squats, abs, chest, arms, back, shoulders

Total Half Marathon Training Mileage – 209.93 miles
I shared on Instagram and Facebook on Saturday the other milestone that I hit over the weekend – I logged my 1,000th mile since I started running! I’ll commemorate this milestone tomorrow with a separate blog post. For now, I’ll be resting my tired legs and taking things a bit easier this coming week.
