Monday mix tape

Hey everyone! It's been a pretty good Monday after a very quick weekend. The weather here is amazing - cool in the mornings and sunny and warm in the afternoon. 

Saturday, I took advantage of the temperatures and my pain free foot and did this

It was early and cook and the beltline was almost empty. My foot was feeling great as long as I stayed slow and kept short strides so I left my ego at home and let my body tell me what to do.

I could have gone another 4 miles easily but I'm being careful and working up to my half marathon distance. The plan is to get to 12 a couple weeks before the race. I will wait until the race to do the full 13.1. I can't even begin to describe how good it feels to be able to run for 2 hours.

Sunday was a rest day. My quads were on FIRE but my foot wasn't hurting at all. I took an epsom salt bath and kept icing and stretching. Worked well enough to be back out again this morning!

I'm afraid it's a short and not so interesting mix tape this week. We are laying low during the renovation and trying not to spend a lot of money. Yep, that's pretty boring :)

Have a happy, healthy week everyone!


  1. Good to hear that your foot wasn't hurting; very good to hear that you're paying attention to your body's cues and taking the distance nice and easy. :)

  2. I wish I could run 4 miles never mind another 4 miles haha. Take it easy hunny. xox
