weekly workouts | january 14
This week’s highlights…
It was a stressful week – more on that to come – so my workouts were a little more relaxed than normal. But, I still managed to get in three trainer rides, including an early morning spin (hey, girl…). I’m not a huge fan of the trainer, especially in our creepy crawly cold basement – not kidding, a spider has dropped down from the ceiling and dangled just inches from my face – but it feels good to spin out the legs and sweat while watching a movie
As for running, Sonia and I ran on Monday night. At 11˚, it was cold, but it wasn’t windy, so we didn’t freeze our bums off. Running in those temps is actually pretty invigorating! And, if you’re dressed right, you don’t even notice it. Nick and I also ran a quick Summit-Cathedral-Selby loop Saturday morning and got a peak at the Red Bull Crashed Ice race course. It’s gonna be fast!
This week’s non-training highlights…
My first attempt at making lavender candles was a success! Super simple and they smell wonderful.
And, my beautiful sister‘s baby shower! The day turned out perfect, and I am over the moon about the bambino’s arrival (mid to late February… my prediction: February 27!) and becoming an aunt! Isn’t my sis glowing?!
|Bike||42.31 miles, 3:09:54|
|Run||7.5 miles, 1:08:49|
|Yoga||one class, 60 minutes|
This week: I’ll be in Charlotte for work Tuesday through Thursday, but will have my running shoes packed and ready to run in 45˚ temps! With a low of -17˚ on Monday and highs barely above zero, it’s a good week to not be in Minnesota And, I’ll finally be announcing my 2013 race calendar!
Have a great week, friends!
Anyone else going to Crashed Ice on Saturday?! Stay warm!
