Bam! Having moaned last week about feeling fat, lazy and not like a runner, I pulled my socks up this week and started doing something about it! The good thing is that I have had NO shin pain all week. Praise the Lord for Saucony Rides!
Thursday night: Yoga
Yoga on demand in my bedroom. I found this link on Cate’s blog – thanks so much, Cate. The dreamy Yoga lady said she could see lotus pads and turtles from where she was yoga-ing. I could see hairs that needed hoovering on my carpet. I am AWFUL at Yoga. Cannot describe how bad I am. I overbalanced on every pose. I couldn’t even work out how she was twisting at times. The only one I can do is upward dog. Thank goodness for upward dog.
Friday: Treadmill Intervals
I mentioned this before, so in summary, 6 miles in 51 mins at 8.30 pace. (Which is super-fast for me but it doesn’t really count on a treadmill).
Sunday: 12 miles long run
Same session. Still as rubbish.
Tuesday: 10 miles long run
Friday: Jillian Michaels 30 day shred – level 2
Weight lost: 3lbs of the 5lb I put on in the UK. Waist starting to re-emerge.
Mental state: SO much happier! SO much happier!!!!
In other news, I’ve signed up for the Crystal Springs Trail Half marathon in August, in my favourite local park, Huddart Park. My parents arrive in California the day before so they’ll be awake early and can hang out with the Dude, come to see me cross the finish line and drive me up to mine and my Dad’s favourite local restaurant, Alice’s! If you’re a local runner…fancy doing this one with me?? Well, starting it with me and having burgers afterwards.
