weekly workouts | january 21
Work travel to Charlotte threw off my week a bit. Thanks to a crazy couple days of meetings, I wasn’t able to explore the city via running like I’d hoped, but I did manage a 5a CST dreadmill run in the hotel fitness room. Two other runs, including a 6.26 miler down Summit – my longest run so far in 2013 – rounded out the week.
Every muscle in my body ached for yoga this week (I did a few sun salutations in my hotel room, but ewww… I need a travel yoga mat!), so after an awesome 70 minutes of intervals at Urban Tri on Saturday morning, I got my om on at candlelit yin yoga at the CorePower Edina studio. From butterfly and shoelace to dragon and sphinx, pure asana bliss. I was so relaxed, I slept in savasana for at least 10 minutes at the end of class.
This week’s non-training highlights…
Per doctor’s orders, I started taking a Vitamin D supplement (2,000 IU). A blood test showed my levels were insufficient – 27 ng/mL when they should be above 30 ng/mL. Maybe it’s in my head, but I feel tons better already. Fish oil’s back on the daily regimen, too.
Friday night date night at the MIA exhibit China’s Terracotta Warriors. I’m still in awe of this marvel and could have spent a few more hours taking it all in.
And, on Saturday night, Nick, Sonia and I spectated at Red Bull Crashed Ice. Insanity. And, a beautifully lit cathedral.
