TWIRL’16: Week 7

Sunday: 02/14/16

  • 3.12 miles.  Totally wasn’t feeling it today.  All my runs leading up today have been good, solid and hard…just not feeling it today.
  • Feeling rather grateful that this is the first Valentine’s Day in many, many years that I didn’t feel like a sad ol’ spinster! #smallvictories

Monday: 02/15/16

  • 15-minute rule – 1.77 miles running and then another 45 minutes walking (another three miles)
  • 30/30/30 (physio ball pikes/push ups/squats)
  • Feeling grateful that I just listened to my body today.  Said body wanted ice cream and not to run…so that is just what I did.

Tuesday: 02/16/16

  • Nothing.  Migraine.  Sigh.
  • Feeling grateful that I had access to my favourite migraine food – Trader Joe’s White Cheddar Mac and Cheese.

  • 90 minutes of curling! So fun.
  • Feeling pretty good after a fun night of curling – my last until I return from Australia.
