Ahhhh, Sunday evening. I did end up running on Friday evening, but only after I listened to Brit on repeat three times. There was no one out, everyone must have been out partying for H-ween? I stopped at the gym afterward to lift for a bit - probably 20 minutes, all upper body.
Saturday I did my cross training, a hike at Silver Falls State Park. The hike was about 6.5 miles, but I ran a good 2.5-3 miles of it to test myself out. There were only slight elevation changes on the sections that I ran, but it was still a workout. I did not have proper gear on so I got some fun blisters. Oh, and I did this after having a big lunch so I'm happy to report there was no barfing, but it did get close.
Today I got out for a 4.5 mile run. I tired to hit up the gym for a yoga class, but it ended up being completely full so I didn't do it. I did some upper body lifting, but pretty brief.
I'm thinking about trying to get in some yoga at home - you know, bust out some sun salutations to start the day right. Anyone have suggestions on what I could do at home?
*Friday 10/31 = 5.05 miles @ 8:15
*Sunday 11/2 = 4.52 miles @ 7:51 pace (how did this happen?? My garmin must have messed up...I show my miles as follows: 6:43, 7:33, 7:56, 8:35...I was going fast, but geez...)
Follow up on last week's goals:
1. Run 20 miles - DONE!
2. Go to yoga twice - DONE!
3. Do some form of cross training (spin, hiking, swimming, etc.) - DONE!
4. Everything in moderation - DONE!
Next week's goals:
1. Run 20 miles minimum
2. Go to "crazy weights" at 6 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
3. Continue to wake up at the same time as last week (become a morning person?)
4. Go to yoga (I'll say once, but go for twice)
5. Cross training (spin, hike, swim, etc.)
Also, my bday is next week so this moderation goal will probably be hard, as I know there will be food/drinks galore. Anyone have any ideas of how to pamper myself for my bday week? And, if you're in Portland, do you have any good dinner suggestions that would be fun for a group? Also, looking for a good brunch place....mimosas mandatory.
