Last week was Sweatworking Week, so that will be a recurring theme. (Which happens twice a year, so stay tuned for the next one, probably in the summer.)
Monday: 30-minute barre class at The Barre Code followed by 30-minute conditioning class with Hardpressed via Sweatworking Week
Tuesday: 6.3-mile run in 1:09
Morning: Yoga class at Brooklyn Boulders followed by a little bouldering via Sweatworking Week
Evening: 30-minute power yoga class at Yoga Six followed by 30-minute boxing class at TITLE Boxing via Sweatworking Week
Thursday: Treadmill intervals at Runn Chicago
Saturday: 10-mile run in 2:09
Total Miles: 20
Total Time: 6 hours
Saturday – the Lakefront Trail was completely covered in ice around the Shedd Aquarium. So beautiful but also very slippery. This is the only run selfie I’ve faked.
So the F^3 Half Marathon is this week. I’m feeling much better about it than I have been the past few weeks. For one thing, my 10-mile run felt good, and I also felt better than usual after. I did keep a very comfortable pace, but I also ran a little bit more total mileage last week than I have been the previous weeks. I plan to run similar mileage this week going into the race. Plus it looks to be warmer on Saturday … although possibly rainy :-\
Also, for once, I made it to all of my Sweatworking Week events! In the past, I always over-committed and then ended up skipping one or two workouts. This time I responsibly canceled my spot 24 hours in advance for the ones I suspected I would skip. Progress.
