Not a lot of running this week. In fact not a lot of running over the past few weeks. I have been getting busier with work/life and not making a huge effort to get out there. Part of that has been the routine change with Ms. Roxie coming home to us. I am up earlier, and getting more walks in, but going home instead of running after work because I am worried about her being home alone for too long. Last night we may have turned the corner. When I got home from work, she had been alone for about 3 hours. I peeked in the window, and she was sitting calmly in her (unlocked) crate. YAY, good job Roxie!
Anyway, I am hoping to get some more running days in, and I’m hoping that the spin & yoga make up for lack of consistent running. We are going BACK to Chicago this weekend, where I plan to get my 18 mile run in on Saturday morning! It is also the day of the CARA Ready to Run event where marathoners have a race environment for their final 20 mile run before the Chicago Marathon. Logistically (and financially) it won’t make a lot of sense for me to sign up, so I’ll be tackling that run solo. Looking forward to some time on the lakefront trail!
