My spring calendar is always my busiest race schedule. I train hard all winter and pray for results come spring. Since I nabbed a new marathon PR last month, I'll deem this past training cycle a success. After the relay race last weekend, I put my Garmin away for awhile. It's time to let my body recover (heal) and just relish in the joy of the run. This week I've done a couple Spinning classes and a several runs as well. I find running naked (no technology gadgets) a completely FREE feeling... releasing myself from the analytics of a watch and the expectation of how fast I should be moving. To be able to finish and feel good is enough. I plan to run naked for the rest of May. It's so old-school running and I love it.
It's been a busy week in our house, wrapping up the school year. Tomorrow is Big Girl's last day of school... and yesterday was Little Girl's preschool graduation. Both my kiddos will now be in grade school! I can hardly believe how quickly the years have passed since they were babies. I'm taking extra effort to make this "the best summer ever" for us. It takes tricky coordination to squeeze in my runs, so I better get used to that 5am alarm.
