A yoga class.
This is how I spent my weekend. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

This week was a good mental week for running and I finally broke through the 50 mile per week limit and ran 53 miles! I also took a yoga workshop all weekend called Yoga Gangsters. It was so nice to run 2 hours and do 2 hours of yoga to kick off my weekend on Saturday.

Monday- 8.5 easy at Monday Night Run

Tuesday- wanted some 90 second/quarter pace intervals. Decided to do 2x (2x 400 1×800) with 200 meter rest, then 2x 400 and 4 x 200 with 200 meter rest. Ran everything in 88-89 except for the first lap of the second 800 (94! oops!). Then ran the 200’s in 38-40. 8 miles total

Wednesday- 8 miles easy with Paige. Sports bra run!!

Thursday- Finally able to drag myself out of bed for a morning run! Ran 6.5 before work which resulted in a more relaxed day.

Friday- AM workout of 8 miles with 4 @ tempo (goal 6:45-6:55). Legs were tired! Ran 7:11, 6:59, 7:21, 7:09. Effort was there so I walked away feeling pretty good about the workout even though paces weren’t met.

Saturday- 14 miles in yucky rain. Met up with some of the guys from CRC for about 7 miles of company, which honestly saved me from cutting it short. Need to try to meet up with the local guys more often.

Sunday- didn’t set an alarm and woke up around 8:30 AM. Decided I didn’t need the miles and enjoyed a slow morning before heading to my yoga workshop. Loving the concept of balancing effort with effortless and I think it may be a good future mantra.

Inspired to explore the convergence  and divergence of yoga and running.

I'm a pediatric physical therapist by day. Running mostly early am miles as I balance life as the mom of a toddler. With PR days in the past, my primary running goal is to be a lifelong runner. With 20+ years behind me, I still love the sport and I am truly grateful for every day I get to run.
