The Weekly Pursuit #38

Hey, hey it’s Monday yet again! It’s also Passover week, with Easter this coming Sunday. I’m considering going to the Easter Sunrise Service here in Orlando. It’s a annual tradition for a number of families and I’ve wanted to check it out, just never done it. Sure, it’s early, but I get up early for runs, and God is much more important than a run!

The Girl's Got Sole - Galloway Victory Breakfast

Orlando Galloway Pace Group Leaders at our Victory Breakfast.

This past weekend, we had our Galloway training group annual victory breakfast. Always a fun time, an event I look forward to ending each season with. This time around, we had the breakfast about a month later than usual, but it worked out pretty well. Everyone brings in food (and there ends up being tons), and we all have a great couple of hours hanging out together not running, but talking about running. We also do awards and have a great slideshow featuring a lot of photos from the season. It was a good morning with fellow running friends.

Since I didn’t run on Saturday morning, I met up with some fellow Orlando Galloway folks on Sunday morning for a run in Winter Park. Ended up doing about four miles with them, and finishing with 6.2 miles with my friend, Susie. It was a nice morning for a run, the weather was cooler than it usually is this time of year in Florida. I know we will be wishing for those 60 degree temps in the coming weeks!

Last week ended up being a more restful one for me than usual. Due to feeling worn down and my stomach not being so happy, I took three rest days, and didn’t even get a run in at all (until Sunday’s run). Definitely an odd week workout-wise for me, and while I tend to dislike resting a lot, I suppose sometimes it’s good to take some extra down time and allow your body not to workout. With NYC Marathon training starting to ramp up soon, I’m happier to do that now rather than later. 🙂
