Weekend Recap

Lots of action since last Thursday. Thursday night I stayed up so late that I felt assy on Friday and didn't do anything! Bad runner. I did go out for a fun night of piano concerts, dinner and post dinner jazz. It was all totally unplanned and fun.

Saturday morning I woke up bright and early and decided to go to the 9 a.m. bikram class. After this I literally high-tailed it over to my friends house to go running. She ran her FIRST EVER 3 miles outside! We did it on the track and went at about a 10:00 pace and she rocked it. It is fun to introduce people to running that have the tendency to hate it. I think if she keeps doing it she'll become a pro in no time. After that we commenced with our "day of sloth" which involved a lot of cheese, champagne and bad TV. It was awesome.

Unfortunately I didn't manage my food or water intake well and woke up feeling totally shitty on Sunday. I didn't think I'd be able to do anything. Around 5 p.m. my roommate convinced me to go on a run with him - an alternate route! I never stray from my norm so I was a little apprehensive, but it turned out to be fun. We went up into the Rose Garden and through Washington Park on the road and on trails. I did a pretty good job considering how crappy I'd felt earlier in the day. I did have some stomach issues (again) and some weird pains in my lower back/right side, but it all turned out okay. We ended up doing 7.2 miles at a 9:05 pace. I iced my ankle after this but woke up with it hurting more than normal today.

Next up: weekly goal re-cap, this week's goals, wedding advice and.....MY NEW TRAINING PLAN!!!

Ooh can't wait to see the training plan! Sounds like a very fun weekend, I love that you ran with Anne and your roommate (hehe). :)

I used to work in Washington Park & love the trails all through there & down to the Rose Garden. I think I'm going to do a mid-day Washington Park run on Friday, in fact. Tomorrow is Forest Park near my house.

I would love to go to 4 PM Bikram today, but it will depend on if my car gets fixed (right now, it won't start, which is kind of a bummer if one wants to drive it).

You're "roommate" sounds nice.

Great job getting those runs done despite feeling poopy!!! Also, take care of that ankle!

I'm totally forgetting to take my vitamins...I miss Vitamin Club.

Any tips so I stop forgetting???
