weekly workouts | january 28
Other than a visit to the cardiologist, it was a really good week training-wise. I logged my biggest running mileage week in ages – five runs for 18.75 miles! – including a great evening run down Summit with Nick and Sonia and a chilly Sunday morning run along the Mississippi with Jen and Johnny. Running is so much more fun when done with friends!
After a kick ass inverse pyramid interval spin at #pedal4pancakes at Urban Tri on Saturday morning, I blissed out on my mat at lululemon Grand Avenue ambassador Amelia‘s C2 vinyasa at CorePower. I was a bit apprehensive about practicing given the last vinyasa class I went to I nearly raced the from the room halfway through. But, the cozy class was exactly what I needed. #yogalove
And, Friday officially marked the start of my Ironman Canada training! Coach Joe sent my first few days of workouts via Training Peaks – a cool format and communication tool with your coach, but I’m still a little partial to my training spreadsheet Regardless, I’ve been diligently logging my workouts in both locations.
This week’s non-training highlights…
I knit a circle scarf! The last time I knit was… hmm… eight years ago, I think! But, it came back quickly after watching a couple tutorials on YouTube. I used this swirling cowl pattern from ravelry and a malabrigo rasta yarn, a super soft merino wool I picked up at the Yarnery. I will definitely make another circle scarf (or five!) before winter is over. A Minnesota girl can’t have too many scarves!
