Got a haircut on Wednesday from the awesome Sam

Thursday on the track

I didn’t actually run any intervals, I just wanted to scope out the track. It’s the closes publicly accessible track I’ve found in my neck of the woods, and it’s open until 10pm with LIGHTS! Lots of free street parking, the L is nearby (Green Line – Cermak), or it’s less than 2 miles from my place (perfect warm-up distance). Anyone up for a track date??


Saturday. Oh hey, it’s still summer.


Sunday with the Pilsen Yoga Tribe

Yes, that was a baby in front of me. It’s community yoga, yo. The babe was really cute and not very fussy.

So … my knee is starting to kind of bug me again. It’s not to the point of pain, but my left knee definitely had moments of tenderness that my right knee does not have. I’m might dial back the mileage (because it’s so high, argh, knee!) and focus on more strength training again. I think I’m going to switch back to the 10-class ClassPass plan with the goal of doing megaformer and weightlifting each once per week. With some bonus yoga on top of all the free yoga. I guess I could also get back into the habit of doing my PT exercises most mornings, but why start now?

  1. I just hate how PT exercises are never something you’re done with (or at least that’s certainly how it feels). Maybe it shouldn’t annoy me–it doesn’t annoy me that I need to stretch and foam roll when I run–but it feels like you should be able to do PT exercises for x amount of time and then congrats! You have strong enough hips for the rest of your running career. Though I wish that for most running related things (like I wish you only had to train for a marathon once, and then for the rest of forever you could run a marathon whenever you want without having to train for it again), so maybe I’m just lazy haha.
