Weekly Workouts: Feb 24-March 2

Woke up to a gloomy rain snow mix, which made me double glad I got in an outside run yesterday.  I went to a morning Bikram class, came home, changed and ate, then got on the treadmill for 7.5 miles at an easy pace while watching:
I am sad to report, however, though this movie is pretty good, Jason Statham never takes his shirt off.  What the hell is that all about?!?!?!  There was lots of fighting, some running, but no shirt off fighting like I've come to expect.
I need this kind of inspiration!
Still, he looks pretty good in clothes too, so I'll let it go.

Stayed up too late watching the Oscars and I was too tired to do my pre-yoga 4 miles.   I did go to class, even though I was sleepy and fat-feeling.  Is it just me, or is February like the worst month ever?  I'm so over it.

Rest Day. Walked to work and back 4 miles.

Slept in later than I would have liked, but managed a 3 mile naked run (no garmin, no headphones, no watch) before work.   It was raining out, so I got to test out my new windbreaker, which isn't quite waterproof, but still better than what I had before
Thanks Old Navy!
I was still pretty soggy when I got home, but my torso was dry-ish.

Six mile run while watching The Biggest Loser followed by 20 squats.

Four mile run before work and evening Bikram class after.

Had to do my long run today since I work all day Sunday.  I am pleased to report I did 10 miles on the treadmill!!!  Afterward, I foam rolled, stretched and iced my knees.  Who the hell am I, some kind of grownup??  I struggled a bit at the beginning of this run, I think mostly because I got caught up on the number TEN.  I always do that.  I have no mental game at all.  After a while though, I got into a good rhythm and finished strong.  Then I ate some mac and cheese.

Weekly Stats:
30.5 miles
3 Bikram classes
1 cross training

This week's power song is Blow, by Ke$ha.  Normally, I can't stand the sound of her voice, but this got me up a big hill once, I have to give her credit.


  1. Nice week! And, 10 miles on the dreadmill?! I'm inspired.

    I am SO over February and winter. Hurry up, spring!

    1. Thanks! I was a wee bit smug after I finished :)

  2. great week!!
    I'm heading shopping tomorrow - MUST check out old navy - love that top!
    yessssss for 10 treadmill miles! Ohgoodness, I miss running. :(

    1. I seriously look like an Old Navy ad whenever I work out. Except for my shoes, it's all them. You just can't beat those prices!
