There was nice and not-so-nice weather this week. It is April, after all. Grateful April Fool’s didn’t dump snow on us — it often does. Just rain this year. It was a busy easy week, if that makes sense.

Wednesday Intention: easy
Since I’m considering a 5k in April — maybe — it’s time to sit down and work out a training plan. Which I haven’t done yet. I was at my mom’s on Tuesday, and often like a rest day afterwards, but had a rest day before the visit and wanted to take advantage of a less windy day (although it still wasn’t terribly warm). Nice to see the return of negative splits (without trying).
Friday Intention: easy time on feet
Grateful the rain held off. The HS girls were back in the neighborhood, but I took a slightly different route this time. Mr. Judy walked Bandit while I was running with no drama.
Sunday Intention: easy time on feet
The running week started strong, but with a couple of nights of shortened sleep due to circumstances beyond my control, I was dragging by the end of the week. Today the first mile felt great due to the chilly but dry weather, and the next couple of miles slowed a bit and I just felt a bit tired. Hoping for better sleep next week.
Favorites of the week
Any week I can get Mr. Judy out of our neighborhood twice is a good week. We still stayed relatively close to home, mindful of the price of gas.
I snuck in that second day on him because the weather, while still a bit chilly, was really beautiful.
