Tuesday night~ I neglected to post again about my run. Well, Andi and I made it 2 miles before we called it a day. The miles were about a 9:20 pace if I remember correctly. It was HOT. I am not sure of the exact stats, but it might have been in the mid to upper 90’s — around 96! Yup, it was toasty. We settled on a walk around Reed’s Lake instead of a slow trot. The walk was a little over 4 miles, but a lot less intense than a run would have been. It gave us a chance to catch up too since she was off running a 1/2 marathon last Saturday without me! 😉 I guess I actually followed some of the tips I offered yesterday. So I ended up running 2 miles and walking over 6!
Wednesday~ Spin at 10 am. Strength today. Lots of hills, lots and lots of hills. That is all we did today. One big hill. It’s been a while since I had no flat roads thrown into a strength day. Whew. It was another hot one up in there. After spin I had another session of Piyo. This might be my 6th week in a row. I almost had to miss it! But thanks to Matt for picking up Amara today from school. It was a half day for her. I picked her up at his office after the class. PiYo went by quickly today. I am not sure why. I could feel how tight my hamstrings were with every down dog today. My friend and fellow spin instructor brought me lunch today from his restaurant! JB’s Pizza Parlor. I asked him (JB) to surprise me with something that tasted good! I am so glad I have friends that listen to me! 😉 I don’t know exactly what is was, but it was delicious. It was a huge wrap ( I gave half to Matt- cuz I am nice like that). Chicken salad, with grapes, lettuce and walnuts. I might have missed something in there, but it hit the spot! I have also had several pizza’s from there and I highly recommend those for sure. The menu is extensive and I need to work my way through it! I love good food.
Today is another super hot day. The rest of the week looks good though. High’s in the 70’s up to Sunday! I hope my race on Saturday has decent weather. I am going into that race with an open mind again. I have no idea how my vocal cords will respond. They did not respond at all at this race last year, so hopefully they remember that and leave me alone on Saturday! Amara has participated in the kids 1 mile fun run on the night before the big race. She wants to do it again this year too. Which leads me to Miles. He asked if he could do it today too. He is 3.5 years old, but he assures me that he can run 1 mile. We might let him do it, but he does not have proper shoes. I don’t know if that matters because of his age, but I would hate for him to hurt his feet running in his clunky worn down shoes! I wold also hate to go out and buy $40 “running” shoes for him to outgrow them in 4 weeks! We better figure this one out – and fast!
On tap for Thursday: Bike ride? Light weights. Flexibility.
