Three Things Thursday

1. With half marathon and 30K PR's and a total of 268.8KM (168.0mi), March was a very successful month on the running front. April will include a 5K race this weekend (not racing), a weekend in Montreal for the half marathon (also not racing) and three long runs over 20 miles. Bring it on!

2. Last night I met up with my training group for a 10K run (and to swap stories from Around the Bay). I decided to add on a little extra before for a total of 15K (9.3mi). I may have been regretting that on the tail end of our run... my legs were tired! Tonight we start Yasso 800's! I love repeats and can't wait to get started.

3. We found out yesterday that my sister was selected as the grand prize winner ($1000) in the vervegirl.com before & after hair contest. Apparently the decision was unanimous among the John Frieda Beauty Panel. Thank you so much for all of your votes!


It's time to get this long weekend started! Have a good one and Happy Easter!

It sounds like you have a WILD weekend of running planned, have fun! I LOVE Yasso's 800's by the way, I credit them for my longer tempo run successes. They were so hard to do at first, even 6 were hard but we made it to 10 by last week and they didn't even hurt. Good luck!!
