It’s starting to feel a lot like spring here in Minneapolis, and I’m loving it! I love seeing the green grass everywhere and just can’t wait until the trees match. 

As I mentioned on Friday, my sister, niece and nephew came into town for the weekend and we had a packed weekend…

All in all, it was a great weekend and I can’t wait til they come back again when the weather is even nicer so we can hang out in the sun even more. 

But before that —> BOSTON IS ONE WEEK AWAY!!!

So very excited to hit up the city and oh yeah, that little thing called a marathon. 😉 We won’t talk about how much taper is driving me crazy but instead, a recap of this week’s workouts:

Tu: rest day
We: 7 miles @ 9:16 avg pace
Th: rest day
Fr: 8 miles with 3 miles at 5k pace (8:37 avg pace)
Sa: 5 miles with 6×100 stride outs
Su: 10 mile Goldy Run with my sister + 2 miles 
Mo: rest day 
Total: 32 miles 

 

This week is going to be pretty low-key, minus that whole having to travel for work Wednesday-Friday. Beyond that, lots of hydrating, eating good food and catching up on that whole sleep thing… oh, and maybe obsessing over the weather just a little bit. 😉

 

What was your favorite part of your weekend? Where do you like to take people who visit you? 

How’s the weather by you? Any fun spring adventures planned?
