Last week went by so quickly! Hopefully it will be the same way this week…I am looking forward to a long holiday weekend. Today I am linking up with Tara at Running n’ Reading for the Weekend Update.
Monday 5/11– 2 mile walk + 3.5 miles (including steps)
Tuesday 5/12 – 2 mile walk
Wednesday 5/13 – 2 mile walk + 60 minutes yoga
Thursday 5/14 – 2 mile walk + 50 minutes yoga
Friday 5/15 – 2 mile walk
Saturday 5/16 – St. Michaels Half Marathon + 1 mile walk
Sunday 5/17 – 60 minutes yoga
Total: 27.6 miles
Overall, it was a pretty good week! I finished with 27.6 miles (St. Michaels Half Marathon included) and bested my Fitbit total from the previous week. Note: I do not count all of my Fitbit mileage towards my total mileage (ex. walking to the grocery store or wandering around the neighborhood are not included). I started the week with a 3.5 half mile run with my friend Rachel. It was not the prettiest run – it was humid and my calves were SOOO tight. We started downtown and ran towards the Memorial Bridge (yup that same bridge at this DC race and that DC race).
Then we went up and down and up and down the steps. It actually felt good to run up those stairs – will definitely be back for more. I need to work on the down portion…I am a bit scared of running fast (fear of tripping). After some stretching, we made our way back downtown (which included a slight incline).
On Tuesday, Cliff and I went to Tono Sushi for some Japanese food.
He had katsu curry (pork cutlet and beef curry shown above) and I had katsudon (pork cutlet and egg over rice shown below). Sooooo good and plenty of leftovers for the next day.
This week was also great on the yoga front! I went a CPY twice and a power yoga class at my gym (mehhh it was okay). Like last week, the hot yoga helped loosen my calves, but it was only temporary…..based on the dot dot dots…you can probably guess how they were during my half this weekend.
On Friday I took a half day from work and my mom drove us to St. Michaels for the half marathon on Saturday. We walked around town (don’t worry it is very small, so we weren’t on our feet for too long) – it is so cute! I’ll share more pictures this week.
Here is a sneak peak of the medal. What do you think? I thought it looked like a football with the oval shaped spinner and the roman numerals…mehh.
How was your weekend?
Do you like stair workouts?
