My only "failed" workout came on Wednesday when I did 4 x 400 instead of 9 x 400. I did a mile warm up and cool down (unheard of for me!), but ran my 400s way too fast (7:00-7:15 pace) so I was spent by #4. I really could have run more, but I called it quits. Lazy!
Overall, my runs were too fast and I paid the price when my IT band started to act up by Thursday. I broke out pigeon pose and my foam roller and made sure to take the two prescribed rest days.
I planned to spend last week doing our taxes and running errands. That didn't happen because I got a job. It was serendipitous... or something. I've been working with the same freelance client for a few years and when I turned in a project on Monday they asked if I'd be interested in a steady job. I love working with them so it was a no brainer. I may get a job here in Bozeman someday, but for now I'm enjoying the illustration work and semi-flexible schedule.

On Saturday we ran bunch of errands, went to a brewery for lunch, then tackled the very easy Story Mill Spur Trail. It was only a mile one way but lead to another brewery, so we stopped for a drink and turned around. We still had energy so we went to the Triple Tree Trail. We went a mile through prairie and mud until we hit a second entry point. Alex and I didn't feel like doing the remaining 3 mile loop so we turned around and went to the grocery.

Until next week...
