weekly workouts | december 31
I’m trying something new for weekly workouts this year. While recapping each day in detail has been a fun way to log my training, it’s been a LOT of work to write and photograph. So, in 2013, I’m adjusting. There will still be a recap each week, but it won’t be as in-depth. Instead it will touch on the week’s highlight(s) with a photo or three along with a chart of the week’s totals.
So, this week’s highlights.
Prior to ringing in 2013, Nick and I skied at Como Park on Monday afternoon. Thanks to dwindling daylight, we only had time for one loop – which was probably a good thing. One: I was crabby; and, two: My skis had zero wax. What a terrible combo. My crankiness wrecked all the fun, and I got the wind knocked out of me when I fell on one the easiest downhills.
On New Years Day, I set my 2013 intentions – compassion + kindness, strong body and be present – during 108 sun salutations at the CorePower Yoga Highland Park studio. A blissful practice, lead by lovely lululemon Grand Avenue ambassador Amelia, next to Nick and friend Sonia. So much beauty and breath.
And, on Saturday, after a three-week hiatus – I left my Madone at the shop for a looong overdue tune-up – I got back on the bike at Urban Tri‘s pedal for pancakes. Twenty-five riders – a fantastic turn-out today! Love that Urban Tri generously opens its doors, clears out the retail floor and sets up trainers for a kick ass sweaty hour of spin each week. Also awesome: My bike spins like a champ. It’s amazing what functioning cables can do for shifting 🙂 Anyway, the work out consisted of a warm-up, six minutes of hard, six intervals of two minutes hard + two minutes recovery, six minutes of hard, and cool down. After not biking for a few weeks… ouch.

This week: With a tentative spring marathon on the calendar – eeeee! – running is gonna pick up. I’m also planning a weeknight Frayed Laces trainer session and another spin at Urban Tri.
Who else planning is a spring 26.2?!
