Wow, what a week! Although my focus this past week was less on starting half marathon training and more on other exciting things going on, it feels good to officially be back in half marathon training mode again. I was able to complete all three of my planned runs, but there just wasn’t time for any other training. So what kept me busy this week?
One highlight of the week was that on Wednesday afternoon the chiropractor released me from my post car accident treatment. Its so nice to look at my calendar for the coming week and not see a single chiropractor or other doctor’s appointment on my schedule, which will of course leave me with more time to train and take care of chores around the house.
The more exciting part of the week was our 39 hour whirlwind trip to Illinois. Although the weekend didn’t start off as planned (our flight to Chicago was delayed by almost four hours due to the airport here being closed midday for the WWII flyover in celebration of the 70th anniversary of V-E Day, followed by an emergency landing, followed by Chicago’s airport being closed due to lightning), I’m so glad that we were able to spend the weekend with family celebrating my sister’s college graduation and Mother’s Day.
Although it was great to spend the weekend with family, it also feels good to be home. I’m looking forward to a quieter week and being able to put more time and energy into my training.
