Running Wild: Weekly Wrap-up

Total Miles Run: 14

Monday: Yoga 

This was a holiday, and my daughters were home from school, so I took my older daughter to to yoga class with me! We had so much fun. I have really begun to look forward to yoga every week, and always request runner-friendly poses, like hip openers. I could do pigeon pose allllll day long! 

Tuesday:  Bootcamp

Had another great bootcamp session, the instructor had us doing A LOT of ab work. Only two classes left in the Groupon I purchased, so the million dollar question is, do I pay full price for these classes after that? Is it worth it? Hmmm. 

Wednesday: Run 3 Miles

I ran at the gym on the treadmill because I won't run outside after dark. Unfortunately, I hate, hate, hate the treadmill at the gym. It feels so much harder to me than running outside! 

Thursday: Rest

Friday: Run 3 Miles 

Was hoping to do something a little bit longer, but I'm lazy, so I didn't, haha.

Saturday: CT at the Gym

My last workout with my friend Sarah, boo! She joined a different gym much closer to her house. Anyways, we did 20 mins on the elliptical, then our standard mix of assisted pull-ups and tricep dips, weighted squats, ab and hamstring work with the stability ball, then some wall balls. Fun, fun!

Sunday: Run 8 Miles

Ohhhh . . . this was a gooood run. I decided to run up a huge hill in West Seattle (Admiral Hill, for you locals), it is a decent climb that lasts about 3/4 of a mile. I had to walk three times, when in the past my goal was to run slow if I must, but don't stop running! I think being totally comfortable with run/walk now has made me not really care how many times I took a break. After that it was down the other side of the hill and a long stretch along Alki before heading home. I felt super strong everywhere except the monster hill, where I only felt "just okay", and enjoyed every step of the run. Still baffled how I can run a 9:30 mile relatively easily in the middle of an 8 mile run, but do that on a 3 mile run? I am DYING. My body is weird.
