Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Harley’s Birthday, and a Fitness Tip

St Patricks day

There is no weekly workout summary post this week because I’ve had to take the entire week off from any form of exercise. Make sure to check back tomorrow to read my Polar Bear Series Half Marathon race recap where I explain the lack of exercise this past week.

Today is not only St. Patrick’s Day but also my dog, Harley’s birthday. She is a black lab/border collie mix and today she turns 15!! I bought her a special bone for a treat as well as a Beneful soft dog food dinner.

Fitness Tip of the Week: Inner layers should fit tight to keep you warm and dry. Outer layers should fit loose so that the air between layers helps evaporate sweat.

**I hurt my foot on Sunday during my run to the point that I could not put any weight on it at all on Monday. By Tuesday the pain was tolerable. Wednesday it was down to tenderness when walking but no pain when sitting. I decided to continue some form of low or no impact cardio all week but no running.**
