Just another week in April.

After a good weekend it was time to do it all over again. Monday’s are unpredictable. What am I trying to say. I never enjoy speed work itself but I can’t wait to get started. It’s temporary pain. It seems to be paying off. This Monday our coach was sick so he decided to warm up and take some pictures. 

As you can see Speed coach is still working on his selfie skills. Definitely getting better. 😅

As you can see Blanca is keeping up with the quick men. If you squint you can see me coming around the corner. 

Never easy, always satisfying. 

Speaking of speed work. Here is what our week looked like. 

Monday- 1 mile warm up (fartleks) (2 min 5k pace)( 2 min slow )x 6 (1 mile cool down)

Tuesday- 4 mile (ended up being half marathon pace)

Wednesday- 1 mile warm up (6×600) 1 mile cool down 

Thursday- stretch, core, roll

Friday- stretch

Saturday- 7 mile (negative splits) will be adding more mileage

Thursday we were able to get together with our bible study and have some great fellowship time. We got to catch up with each other and shared many laughs together. 

Blanca and I have been recording some routes to add to our Downtown Run Group YouTube page which you can check out by clicking on here. 

Here is Blanca editing the video. 

Having been at the Pearl I finally took Blanca to have a bite at Green. 

After having lunch and finishing with the video it was time to play some disc golf. Have you ever played? 


Santino was able to join us on this round. He’s a quick learner. He came out ahead. 

A little bit of Saturday. 


It was a great week overall.
