Training recap week of 3/23 (Pixie Dust Challenge Week 12)

Another week of training done and we are officially 2/3 of the way to the Pixie Dust Challenge! Only 6 weeks to go -  get excited!

This week took a slight down turn in mileage as I was fighting a bit of cold early in the week.  I never got fully sick, thankfully, but it did kill my energy levels.  I didn't do my speedwork on Wednesday and just did an easy run.  Although, won't lie, there was part of me that still wanted to do it, but I knew that it would just delay my recovery.  I was feeling better by the weekend for my long run, so that was good!

Got in a solid amount of cross training and strength workouts, so that was good.
