Happy Monday and welcome to my new home! This past weekend I moved my blog from Tumblr to WordPress and I am quite happy with how it went (I was anticipating major hiccups). I am still working through my “transition” list and learning to navigate WP (plugins, dashboard, widgets etc). I will share my experience with everyone this week. Now onto training:
Monday 2/16 – Rest day
Tuesday 2/17 – 1.5 miles
Wednesday 2/18 – Rest day
Thursday 2/19 – 1 mile + 60 minutes personal training + 15 minutes stairclimber
Friday 2/20 – Rest day
Saturday 2/21 – 60 minutes yoga + 5 miles
Sunday 2/22 – 8 miles
Total: 15.5 miles
I am happy I was able to increase my total mileage from last week, and I am hoping to get back into my normal routine this week.
On Monday I left warm Austin and returned to snowy DC. While we sat at the gate, we saw the plane in the background get de-iced…it was pretty neat.
On Wednesday it was Chinese New Year Eve/Ash Wednesday. Cliff and I headed to my parent’s house in Maryland where we had a yummy dinner prepared by my mom. My aunt, uncle and cousins were there as well.

On Saturday the plan was to meet Lindsey in Silver Spring for a short run, but I opted out after stepping outside that morning (ummm 15 degrees…no thanks). I worked on the blog for a bit then headed to the U.S Botanic Gardens where I met Julie for some free yoga. This was my first time there (visiting the gardens and for yoga) and it was packed! The instructor said they will be hosting free yoga outdoors during the summer months.
After yoga, Julie kindly dropped me off at the metro and I headed to the gym for my long run. Even though I had a pretty view and decent Lifetime movie on, I called it quits after 5 miles.
I had a nice movie night with Cliff and headed back to the gym on Sunday evening for LR attempt #2. Eight sweaty miles later I was done.
Today I am linking up with Tara at Running n’ Reading for her Weekend Update.
Did you end up running inside or outside this weekend?
