I signed up for Ali’s Virtual Running with Spatulas Race, and decided that I would run the 10k today.
Let me tell you, today was a horrible running day. I have good running days and bad running days. I like running, but it’s a struggle for me. I have never been a great runner or a long distance runner. I enjoy the challenge and trying to improve my running, but today was tough. My body just wasn’t feeling it.
I still pushed myself to complete the 6.2 miles. I ran a little over three miles, and then had to walk/jog the rest. But I did it…and now my legs are sore. I even wore my Zensah calf sleeves and Mizuno running shoes!
Ali’s virtual race goes to the end of the month, so I can always redo the 6.2 if I’m not happy with my time, but right now I’m just happy I did it. I still have the 10k on the bike portion to complete.
After the gym, I stopped by the grocery store and was surprised to find the new Chobani Flips yogurt.
Surprised but excited. I usually grocery shop at Meijer, and they don’t even carry the Chobani bites, so I was surprised to see the Flips. I bought two of the key lime with graham cracker and white chocolate flavors to try out.
I’m pretty sure that it’s going to be delicious
Yesterday, I made an Easter craft with my niece and Jaden. (Apparently Jacob is too old to make Easter crafts.) We did
marble bouncy ball painting. Usually a marble or golf ball works best, but all I could find was a bouncy ball.
I love this kind of painting because it doesn’t make a mess and is great for toddlers.
I cut off the top of a pancake mix box, put in a paper shaped egg, added the paint and bouncy ball and let the kids roll it around until the egg was painted. My niece loved it. Great for fine motor skill and not messy! Win-win.
After the eggs dried, I glued them to a purple piece of scrapbook paper and wrote Happy Easter on it.
Only 10 more days until Easter, and only nine more days until the Egg Shell Shuffle 5k. I am a little bit nervous for the 5k because it’s going to be cold here, and I have never run an outdoor race in the cold. I am more of a hot weather girl! We’ll see how it goes!
- What’s the last distance that you ran? Ever have bad running days?
- Would you rather run in hot or cold weather? Any cold weather running tips?
- Make any Easter crafts?
