5K/10K Training Tuesday: Week Seven
Monday: 2.5 miles
Wednesday: 2 miles
Friday: 3 miles
I'm still counting moving as a quasi-form of cross training. Lots of lifting of heavy boxes in and out of cars and in and out of apartments and up and down stairs. Week and a half until the big official day!
Monday was, of course, the first day after our clocks "spring forward" and we lose an hour. I spent all day Sunday cranky and binge watching Dawson's Creek and then could not for the life of me fall asleep Sunday night, which was an issue since I knew I had to get my butt up early to get my run in. Despite tossing and turning for hours and never really feeling like I managed to get any sleep, I was up before my 5:45 am alarm clock and out the door by 6 am.
That week before the time change I was teased with sunlight before work but now, of course, I was back to running in the dark. But, whatever. I got the run in and then when everyone else was complaining about the time change I was all "Oh, I was up stupid early and went for a run sooooo yeah, I'm good."
Work has brought lunch time yoga back and I'm sooooo excited. It's only 30 minutes, but it's just long enough to get a nice mental and physical break in the middle of the workday. So that was one day last week and the other day I did a video in the morning before work.
It's been months since I've done yoga but my body is loving having it back. And despite not being on the mat is such a long time, I'm still flexible and strong enough to get back up into a full Wheel pose! After attending that first yoga class I decided I needed to add a cross-training chapter to my book!
Love from the ashes,
