It’s been a great week so far and it looks like the Valentine fairy came to our house yesterday! Lol. There are balloons, candy, and flowers every where! This was the first year I delivered a small gift for each of our three children to the schools and the first Valentine’s Day my husband and I were able to go on a date in years! He runs his restaurant with his Dad and guess when they’re open? Only on weekends so date nights are few and far between for us! It’s been a really great week and here is what I’ve been doing so far..
Sunday: church and family time.
Tuesday: Happy Valentine’s Day! Since I raced Saturday, I didn’t run until yesterday morning. I made it three miles using the run/walk method I’ve been using for the last 2 weeks. Run 2 minutes and walk 30 seconds. My legs were still pretty tired and my knee was talking to me a little. It’s an old injury that comes and goes called “Runner’s Knee.” It’s pain across the left knee cap. All I had to do was shorten my stride and run more on the balls of my feet. The pain went away immediately. Running downhill was a little tricky, but I finished with 10:57 average pace which is not bad for all the hills I ran! I spent the rest of the morning writing an upper body workout for my class and delivered balloons, candy, drinks, and cards to my three children at their schools. Our three Valentines ❤️💜💗
He also bought me running clothes for Valentine’s Day. Swoon! He’s such a sweet and thoughtful man. I am truly blessed. Valentine’s Day is sort of an anniversary for us. 14 years ago on Valentine’s Day, he proposed to me on the beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama. I am so thankful for 14 years with such a wonderful husband and father to our 3 children! Date night!
Wednesday: I plan on resting today. I am considering running another half marathon Saturday since it’s at the beach. I think with the kids being off school Monday we may spend three days down there.
How has your week been? Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Hope the rest of your week is great! ❤️
