spring has sprung

Enjoyed a weekend of fantastic weather and fellowship with family and friends. Caught up with a dear high school friend, Hollie, and her little family on Saturday. Who would have ever imagined two Texas girls who have fallen into the grasp of Oklahoma’s arms?

Started the weekend off with a Saturday morning run with my training group. I was so eager to return to my training after my week’s hiatus of running. So, I had 12 miles on the menu. Woke up and started my morning with a hot coffee and fresh scrambled eggs. I guess I am going to have to start getting used to the warmer days ahead. Even after the thunderstorm that had passed through the night before, Saturday morning welcomed us with a springy 60 degrees.

My run started off UH-MAZ-ING. I was just thrilled to be back on my running game. I even got to break in my new shoes. My Achilles was feeling great for the first 2 miles, and then it started to hurt- the same type of pain I was having a week ago. I said and prayer, and kept running. It didn’t give me any more problems during the remainder of my run, but I made sure to stop at every water stop just to rest it a bit. I finished my 12.25 mile run, and headed to the gym.

Saturday was an upper body at the gym. I have officially completed 1 unassisted pull-up! To complete a pull-up has been a goal of mine for years running, but never took the time to put in the work for it. After weeks and weeks of pull-up negatives, weighted pull-ups, assisted pull-ups, wide grip pull-up, narrow grip pull-ups, and any pull-up under the sun you can think of, I FINALLY can complete 1 pull-up on my own.

OH Press- Look a those biceps :)

OH Press- Look those shoulders and back 🙂

I will also be interviewed on NPR this week on Zobra Paster’s, On Your Health. I will let you all know when it airs.

Since I spent most of the week resting my leg, I did mostly lifting and resting this week. Plan on making a call to the doctor tomorrow. I will keep you all posted.
