For many reasons, this past week of workouts didn’t go exactly as exactly planned. My biggest obstacle was my schedule. Between chiropractor and dentist appointments after work this week, Tuesday evening was the only day that I didn’t have an appointment after work. Just to paint one picture for you of how this week went after work, my dentist appointment was Thursday after work. Our dentist is near our old apartment, and it took me well over an hour to get home from the dentist. By the time I finally made it home on Thursday, I had been out of the house for close to 13 hours.
One highlight of my week was the yoga class that I took at work on Monday. One of our professional development options for the day was yoga, as a way to focus on destressing. It was a great way to ease back into work after Spring Break.
The other highlight of this past week was running the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run yesterday morning. I’ll recap the race this week, but as I shared in my goals post, this wasn’t a goal race for me. And I’m glad it wasn’t since the course had to be cut short due to a pedestrian that was hit prior to the start of the race on the race course. According to my Garmin, I ran 9.49 miles during the race. Despite the emergency, it was an absolutely perfect morning for a race, and I loved that the cherry blossoms were at peak bloom.

QOTD: Have you ever run a race where the course had to be cut short due to an emergency?
