Happy Monday! I had a really productive day on Saturday, and a really relaxing day on Sunday which = the perfect weekend.
Saturday morning I got up early and went down to the beach to do a little photoshoot for the Spring Collection for Lilypad Candles (my candle shop).
I ended up taking close to 200 pictures and eventually selected about 20 of them to be used on the website. I think I did an okay job… I still have a lot to learn about lighting, camera settings, angles, post-processing etc. but overall I’m happy with how the pics came out.
After I messed around with the pictures for a bit I went for a run. My coach said to just do whatever felt right last week. I had it in my head that I wanted to do about 10K on Saturday but I ended up only doing a little over four miles.
I’m still using my calendar to keep track of daily / monthly mileage. In February I ran 66.2 miles for a total of 143.4 for the year so far.
My goal is always to take just one complete rest day a week, but this month I only managed that one week. Hopefully I’ll do better in March, although I’m not stressing out about the eight rest days I ended up taking. A couple were during my taper and a couple were post-half marathon so it’s NBD (no big deal). I wasn’t just being lazy : )
On Sunday after I rolled out of bed at 12:30pm (yes, seriously!! haha) and walked down to the beach for lunch.
It was SO CROWDED! We realized soon after that lots of spring breakers are already in town. We saw a Michigan State flag and an Ohio State flag which pretty much confirmed our suspicions.
All in all this was the perfect weekend. I was productive but still got to sleep in one day, spend quality time with Adam and go running.
Are you tracking your monthly / yearly mileage?
Favorite place you went for spring break when you were in college?
– I worked a year-round, full time internship my entire junior and senior year so we never really went anywhere : (
