It was one of those weekends where I just needed an extra day. Needed. It wasn’t bad – just non-stop and I would have loved another 24 hours.
We were invited to attend the Raptors game with adidas on Friday night and while we watched, we got to design some custom ultra boosts and eat pizza. Pretty perfect way to spend a Friday if you ask me. These ultra boosts are going to be available online on April 13th and they are only releasing 3500 pairs to both Canada and Europe. You can choose between white, grey or black and customize small details like the sole, laces, and tongue tab. I ended up going with the black ones and added some red details!
Saturday and Sunday were spent running one errand after another and doing house-related things. Never too busy to squeeze in a pasta date though, am I right?
I don’t think I actually sat down until about 9pm. We ended up watching 3 Days to Kill before calling it a night. Has anyone seen it? I am pretty easily entertained when it comes to movies so I enjoyed it even though the reviews are less than stellar (it did receive four stars on Netflix though).
Let’s move on to those April goals now, shall we?
Increase my mileage on my FEET and my WHEELS!
Since March was basically a write-off running-wise, I’d like to try and get back to a more regular routine now that I feel better. Running will obviously be my main focus but I think it’s time to dust off my road bike as well. I bought one years ago and used it a total of three times – two training rides and then to complete the Ride for Heart. I’d like to try and spend one day each weekend getting comfortable on it so that I can (hopefully) go on longer rides this summer.
Blog more consistently and share what I can.
With less running, March also brought less blogging. Not only was it a month full of viruses but it was also an extremely busy month. Blogging just couldn’t be a priority. Now that things have started to fall into place, I’ll be able to carve in a little more time for this little blog of mine. I have been getting some questions about my personal life and why I’m keeping things private, not making Internet introductions, etc. That’s just the way I’m choosing to do things right now but I will share what I can/feel comfortable sharing on here. This is a running blog, after all! 😉
Get back to weekly food prep and eat more dinners at home.
I feel like this has been a goal of mine starting January 1st and I have yet to nail it. Let’s try this again. Oh, I did make the sun dried tomato pasta from Oh She Glows last week and it was amazing. I hadn’t made it in months and I think it’s going to be in the weekly rotation going forward. Between that recipe and the vegan caesar, my cashew consumption is going to be through the roof. Costco has big bags for a decent price so we picked some up on the weekend. What would I do without Costco?
Be nicer to myself.
I know I already mentioned this in my last post, but I’m going to say it again. There has been too much negative self-talk lately and I am over it. I’m so critical when it comes to my running, the way I look…and always find I’m comparing myself to other people. Nope. Done. Compliments over criticisms from now on. Who’s with me??
Got my first April run in yesterday (6 miles) and went watch-less. No numbers, no pace goals, no stress. My goal was to ease back into it and enjoy every second. Mission accomplished.

Have a great Tuesday!
