Josh got cleared to ride his bike again (and do some short runs), so he biked along with me on my 12 miler this afternoon.
The weather was great, it was nice to be outside in the sun & warm breeze.
Quite a difference from yesterday, when we had hopefully our final Snowpocalypse of the year.
I didn’t meet my mileage quota this week, I’ve been having some IT band related knee issues so I took a few days off to let that simmer down. Thanks to a few sessions with my foam roller my knee was fine and dandy on today’s run.
Packing has been a priority since our moving date is coming up fast and we have a lot more boxes packed. This week, we only needed to break into three boxes to retrieve packed items. We had success with two items, but not the last, which explains why I just pulled banana cake out of the oven instead of banana bread.
At least the cats have been having lots of fun.
Anyway, weekly recap. Monday, 3 @ 11:36, Wednesday 6 @ 10:26, and Sunday 12.3 @ 10:52 for a total of just over 21 miles. I ended up about seven miles short. Next week I have 28 miles on the schedule, but I’m already anticipating not making that. Oh well.

Happy Easter, or Happy Zombie Jesus Day, whichever you prefer. We are having ham later on today, depending on if I packed my roasting pan. We’re moving at the end of the April so we’ve been packing like crazy and my life currently looks like this:
Our new place is on 10.5 acres about 5 miles outside of town, and our only neighbors will be critters and trees. It’s going to be so awesome. Packing up the kitchen has been interesting. I take something out of the cabinet, try to decide if I’ll need it in the next month, decide that I won’t so I pack it up. Two hours later either Josh or I are standing in the kitchen trying to figure out why we can’t find the thing that’s now packed away on the bottom of a large, sealed box. So far, I’ve only had to break into one box.
Anyway, since it finally stopped snowing, I had a much better running week than the last two. Last week I was only able to manage 15 miles. 5 miles on Monday right before Snowpocalypse IV hit and then 10 miles on Saturday. This week, I finished up with just over 25 miles, including a 10 miler in a steady drizzle that turned to sleet half-way through. The roads were slippery, but not too terrible. Running in frozen clothing was unpleasant. Check out the ice on my glasses, compliments of a MUB bathroom glamour shot.
Weekly recap: (last week) Monday, 5 @ 10:16; Saturday, 10.25 @ 10:11. (this week) Tuesday, 5 @ 10:12; Wednesday, 5 @ 10:00; Friday 4 @ 10:38; Saturday, 10.50 @ 10:33.
March (good riddance) ended up being 83 miles @ 10:30, and so far for 2013, I have 178 miles. Next week is a big one. I have 28 total miles on the calendar, with a long run of 12. Woot.

Thanks to the bunch of snow we got early last week, I was only able to complete two out of my four runs. I had a not-so-great run on Thursday where I felt like the upper & lower halves of my body just couldn’t get in sync and then a 10-miler on Saturday that was pretty okay, aside from having to climb into a snow bank for a potty break. Incidentally, the snow is up to my knees on the side of this road.
It’s not looking good for making my runs this week, either, seeing as we’re right in the middle of Snowpocalypse IV. I did have a really good on Monday just before the snow started, so that felt good.
Weekly recap: Thursday, 5.14 @ 10:23; Saturday 10.14 @ 11:05 for a total of 15.28 miles. This week I’m supposed to do 23.50, but it’s unlikely I’ll make that.
