Are you guys having awesome weather, too?Â Spring has definitely sprung in Charlotte.Â I just hope it lasts!
It was so nice outside yesterday that I skipped my planned indoor workout (spin class) and went on a run.Â Â My legs are still shredded from this weekendâ€™s half marathon!Â I thought I was back to normal, but then I started pushing a 45 pound jogging stroller up a hill.Â Hahâ€¦
So â€“ itâ€™s time for an Ironman March check-in!Â Ironman March is my quest to run, swim, and bike the Ironman distance over the entire month of March (here are more details, including the training plan).Â Hereâ€™s how Iâ€™m doing so far.
As you can see, Week 1 was entirely run-focused because of my Half Marathon (and traveling and the fact that Henry was sick so I couldnâ€™t put him in gym childcare).
So far this week, in addition to yesterdayâ€™s short run, I went swimming.Â I went into the pool planning to do 1500 metersâ€¦ It was quickly knocked down to 1000â€¦ and then I settled on 750.Â LOL.
It was nice to be back in the water, as I havenâ€™t gone swimming in a while.
If youâ€™re doing Ironman March, too, howâ€™s it going?Â I gotta make up the cycling â€“ it can get nasty if you get too far behind on that.Â 112 miles is a looooong way.
Thought of the Day:
And hereâ€™s your smile of the day!
To preface this video, Henry was telling me about what happened the day before.Â We were all in the car, and Kristien saw a deer on the sidewalk (yes, in the middle of urban Charlotte!), so he shouted, â€œDEER!!!â€ and leaned on his horn.Â Iâ€™m always amazed at the 10-second moments that Henry focuses on and remembersâ€¦ itâ€™s a good reminder to try to be a role model all. of. the. time.
