Training, Feb 17-23

I haven’t done one of these in awhile, because I haven’t had much to talk about. Damn Polar Vortex (and, well, other stuff).

Monday: 3mi in 30 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes of arms, abs, glutes and stuff at the office fitness center.

Tuesday: Tango class at ARTango. Class is about 1.5 hours long, but I’d only count this as maybe 20-30 minutes of actual dancing.

Wednesday: 2.1mi in 23 minutes before work; 3mi in 30 minutes and 20 minutes of planks and arms and squats in the office fitness center after.

Thursday: 1 hour of Basic Burlesque at Studio L’amour.

Friday: 2.8mi in 30 minutes before work.

Saturday: 6mi in 1 hour on the Lakefront Trail!!! Missed that place.

Sunday: 1 hour of Rock ‘n Roll Burlesque at Vaudezilla; 3.2mi in 32 minutes.

Total Miles: 20
Total Time: 6 1/2 hours

Running around the beach south of Fullerton


  • This was my first 20-mile week in awhile. It’s been cold. My next race is an 8K. I’ve been much more into dance as of late.
  • The hubby-kins and I have been taking tango class together. It’s been fun! Of course the class has more women than men, so we don’t always dance together.
  • So all of our scheduled classes are over, and my burlesque performance is next month. Eek! I’m excited and nervous. Gotta finalize my outfit, and by that I mean get a new bra. Andย notย a sports bra ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. ARTango keeps getting recommended for their food, I had no idea they actually had tango classes too! Have you guys eaten there?

    All of the dancing sounds fun! So I don’t blame you for picking that over running out in the cold on icy sidewalks.

  2. I’ve been kinda silent as of late too. I mean really, who wants to hear me bitch about the weather? And hear about endless treadmill runs? And see my crazy axx speed program that I’m trying to run so that I can have a good Shuffle. Oh, and do you think anyone is interested in the fact that I’m having tummy issues (x100), have gained weight and just generally feel pretty crappy? Um, yeah, not really. So I get the silence. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great week for ryou!. Love the “frozen” pic.
