Yay, the weekend is upon us. I decided to take Monday off and make it a 3 day weekend. We all need those every now and then. I’m battling a little cold, so my fingers are crossed I remain illness free all weekend.
I’m going to try a new blogging format. I generally don’t have much interesting running stuff to talk about since I don’t do a lot of races and trail runs anymore. So I’m going to turn my blog into a little virtual training diary. I’ll try it at least….it may get so boring and pitiful I’ll have to stop, but it’s my blog, so I can do what I want! Oh, and my weeks will be Saturday-Friday. Just because Friday at lunchtime is a good time to blog and Saturday and Sunday evenings are not. So here goes:
Saturday: I already mentioned this was a great run with a chunk on the treadmill, a chunk outside in the hills. 13.5 miles
Sunday: Walnut creek heaven with friends. 6.6 miles
Monday: Treadmill while finishing up Spirit of the Marathon II and some more Breaking Bad. 6 miles, yoga core in evening.
Tuesday: More treadmill, more Breaking Bad. What will I do when I finish it? My sidekick got up at 3:30, which means I went to work having also gotten up at 3:30 and did my run ridculously early. 6 miles
Wednesday: My little sidekick slept until 6:30. HEAVEN. I ran outside in the ‘hood for 7 lovely miles, and had a cup of coffee before he got up. That night I went to yoga at the Y and was bummed it was a Silver Sneakers class (geared towards those preferring a slower, gentler pace). Still went though since I worked hard to get out of the house. 7 miles, plus yoga for seniors.
Thursday: Another outdoor run, after getting up with Jaspy at 2:45. Got him to sleep again at 400, and took a nap until 430 and then got up. Torture. Run was slow as a result, but happy to be out. Baseball night for Jasp means a super hectic day on little sleep and I notice my throat is very sore. Meh. 6.2 miles
Friday: Feeling sick so slept in until 5:30. Walked on the treadmill for a couple miles with my sidekick who woke up at 5:30, which is better than 2:45. Yoga core ready in DVD player for tonight… 2 miles
And now back to work. My goals this weekend are get in some hills and try an a new brew pub. Aim high, I tell ya…..
