Weekly Wrap Up – 4/16/17

Easter week, spring break, blah blah blah…

  1. 65.3 miles – 8 runs. I feel really good that I was able to push up to a level of running that I used to do quite regularly. Also feel good that I was able to keep to a schedule of running every day of my spring break. It’ll be a while before I get that kind of time again.
  2. Long run for the week was 18.7 miles. I literally haven’t done a long run of that length since I first started training for marathons back in 2009. I actually searched through my Strava history to find the closest to that and came up with 16.6 miles from two years ago.
  3. On that last note, I realize that the marathon training I do is somewhat different than the training most people do but it’s always worked for me. I’m sure I could tweak things here and there to get faster (especially pacing, lol) but so far my marathon PR is 3:10 and my 1/2 PR is 1:23 so I can’t be doing too bad. Different strokes for different folks.
  4. I’ve thought about this a ton over the last year and as much as I grumble about it, it’s nice that June is growing older and maturing. Just watching her around the twins puts our mind at ease about having more kids so much further apart. She loves spending time with them and helping us out in small ways. It excites me for how that relationship is going to expand as everyone gets older.
  5. About June and her aging and grumblyness (yes it’s a word!!!), she spent most of the week up with my wife’s family. It was nice to be 1 on 1 with the kids for a change and I’m sure it was nice for her to be the #1 priority for a whole week.
  6. Our twin boys had their 1st Easter that they could really participate in. My family came up and spent the day with them. We made a simple dinner for everyone and ate way too much candy. It was a ton of fun. Maybe next year the boys will be better about dropping eggs in the basket.
  7. I’ve been working on a future post in my head…the concept of balance now that there are 5 in the house (7 with the animals) and how life is always the same but also completely different. Also, Seven.
