weekly workouts | january 7
This week’s highlights…
Monday night I joined friends Sonia and Sarah for a run around the Ford-Franklin bridge loop plus another mile or so out and back. Maneuvering icy sidewalks, we kept a sub-nine pace, and, as always, talked nonstop. Love having these weekly runs with these lovely ladies!
On Tuesday, after tromping up and down the stairs three times and fiddling with the DVD player for at least 10 minutes – it didn’t work, so I watched Eat Pray Love on my laptop – I hopped on the trainer for Frayed Laces’ week six of #trainertuesdays.
Not one, but TWO sessions on the dreadmill this week. During Thursday’s run – it was pouring, in January, in Minnesota – Nick and I did intervals while he explained how to play racquetball (I still don’t fully understand it). And, before a quick swim, I slogged through a quick three miler again Sunday morning after dropping Nick off at the airport. Lucky bum is working in Florida most of the week
On Saturday morning, we hammered out some threshold training at Urban Tri. Nothing like holding your heart rate at 85 percent for about an hour. My legs were toast by the end. The gluten-free pancakes and bacon sure hit the spot afterward! Thanks for another great morning, Urban Tri!
Weekly stats: I can’t believe I didn’t ski this week, but it’s tough when it’s dark after work, and trails that are lit are a haul from our house. And, in big toe news, it still hurts… but, despite modifying every chatarunga and every crescent lunge during practice this week, I can’t give up my mat. I need that yoga bliss!
