Usually I blog every workout, but this past weekend I was feeling blogged out and didn’t. So now you get a recap of 3! Friday I got a nice 30 minute lap swim done just before a storm blew in. Raindrops and thunder in the distance chased me out of the pool as I was stretching. Saturday, yoga in the morning before we headed out to a wedding. The venue was beautiful– an old mansion in the mountains with lovely grounds. The ceremony was outside next to a lily pond, and as we cheered for the newly-married couple the bullfrogs in the pond croaked too! It was adorable.
Sunday I didn’t do nothin’. Today, though, the weather was just too nice and I was feeling a run so I went out for 30 minutes on the monotonic route. It went much better than I expected– no walk breaks, even with the stupid big hills, and I covered 2.4 miles feeling good the entire way.
Sometime in the next few days I need to think if I still want to commit to the 10k training plan I’ve been mulling over (and find a race to go with it). It’s just that longer distances are a much larger time commitment for slow runners like me; long training runs will be like an hour and a half and I have so much other crap to deal with right now. Can I do a long run and install a toilet and paint the bathroom on the same day? Do I want to?
