In this week's adventures: 26 incredible miles of running (8 of them outdoors!) and I turned to Thred Up for a fitness wardrobe refresh.

A weekly round up: eats, watches, and reads. This week was insanely busy on the work front. I love my job, and normally it's nice about containing itself between 9 to 5, but this week was a brutal exception. I had some very late evenings this week, two days in a row where I was so late that I not only missed dinner with the fam but also our nightly dog walk. I'm so happy to finally have a few minutes to chat about it all and fingers crossed hopefully everything is settled down now?

A tale of 23 miles and frustration with my work life. Werk has been pretty heavy duty lately and my first full week in the office after Christmas break came down hard with no mercy. The only way that workouts happen in weeks like these is when they happen at dark o'clock in the morning.
I'm not really training for anything except life right now. I don't need to start training for my April half for a few more weeks (and anyway my half marathon training plan is just "run a lot"), so the goal now is to start increasing my mileage a bit. In full transparency, my body was not impressed with the treadmill this week, and you'll see that a few of my workouts came with a side of humble pie. That's life friends, I wouldn't have anything to write about if everything was easy.

Before we get started
I am not qualified to give advice on any subject let alone running. This is what works for me and the trials and errors that got me here. The only thing I know for sure is that you should do you.
My Running Plans for 2019 (here)
- Run > 1,000 miles
- Do the Strava Lululemon challenge in January
- Run six races: my first half marathon (!), another half marathon, two 5ks, a 10k, a marathon relay (5 miles) for 43.6 miles of racing.
- All of the above and so much more
