Sanity Runs

This is going to be a crazy week, so I will need my running more than ever to keep me sane. On the running schedule this week:

Monday - Speedwork (10 min warm, 3 x 1600 w/3 min recovery, 10 min cool)
Wednesday - Long run (shooting for 10 miles)
Friday - Tempo run (10 min warm, 4 miles @ tempo pace, 10 min cool)

All my runs will most likely be on the treadmill because the hubby is out of town. The treadmill is probably better for me right now since some ITB/knee pain on Saturday cut my planned eight mile run down to seven. I hope to do a few miles Tuesday and some recovery miles Thursday as well. There will be no running Saturday because that's the day we head to HAWAII!

My cousin called this morning to invite me to do a relay with her and some of her friends (one of them dropped out at the last minute) this weekend. I was a little bummed because I really want to do a relay and this one is a qualifying race for the St. George Marathon runner series. I guess a week of running in Hawaii is a pretty good trade.

In addition to running, my week will be full of: making birthday cupcakes for preschool on Tuesday, a music program for the parents at preschool on Tuesday, my annual girl exam on Wednesday, a follow-up appointment with my ortho on Thursday, birthday party for the biggest little midge on Thursday, making a birthday cake for the party, parent/teacher conference on Friday, packing for four people and a dog (he's going to play with his puppy cousins for the week), finishing up a work project, and last minute birthday and vacation shopping.

I also plan to throw a little blogging and blog reading in there when I can. Hope you all had a great weekend full of great runs (I know Redhead Morgan did)!

What were your weekend running highlights?


  1. Hey, you can run through the airport like you are trying to catch a plane = speed work!

  2. Hawaii? That's awesome. So jealous right now!

  3. Sounds like a very full week but well worth it with Hawaii at the end of it! I so need to get back there!
    As for my weekend running: don't even go there.

  4. Oh my, you do have a very busy week ahead but you get to go to Hawaii so I don't feel sorry for you lol.

    My weekend of running? I ran on the treadmill. Yay me :)

  5. exciting! my weekend was spent on the treadmill.

  6. Thanks for your comments on my blog. You sure you want to run the "dreadmill" with your knee issues? Two different PT's have told me how bad treadmills are on knees. Not trying to be "bossy," just trying to help. Sounds like a VERY busy week ahead for you. Running will definitely be the least challenging part of it for you I would guess. Going to Hawaii is certainly a nice reward once it's all over though. Have fun!

  7. Ohh I hope the relay is lots of fun! I agree running is how I keep myself sane during these nutty weeks!

  8. I would say running in Hawaii is a great trade!!! How exciting! Have a wonderful trip!!
