This was officially week 1 of training for the Soldier Field 10. (Which I have yet to sign up for.) And I did every run as planned! I even woke up early to get in my run before work on Thursday, because we had plans to go to the Art Institute in the evening. Extra gold star for me.

However, I also started a new session of burlesque classes on Sunday – Advanced Fan Dancing and Solo Development – but skipped classes because I was feeling crummy. You win some, you lose some.

    No wonder I felt crummy by Sunday 

So, now that my goal is to run 3x per week, I need to figure out how to manage my schedule to get in enough yoga and strength workouts to make sure my glutes stay strong and my hips stay stretched. My goal is at least one yoga and two strength workouts per week. This week I got in one yoga and one strength (as part of the GoRow workout). Oh, and I also need to make sure I get enough sleep. And, uh, the diet could use some work. I’m started tracking my calories again, which never uncovers anything you want to see.

  1. Congrats on nailing your runs and also for obtaining the extra gold star! Love the running pic with the sun on your knee! I hear you regarding the time management thing. Sleep is so important and I never seem to get enough of it and like you and your 6:23 average – I’m worn you by the weekend. I run in the mornings (and sometimes at lunch) then strength train after work. I do yoga on my day off from running and I also try to squeeze another session in during the week. I also run/walk the doggies 2+ times a day and have a full time job! I guess when I’m 90 I’ll have plenty of time to sleep (if I live that long)! 🙂

    1. I keep thinking about running during lunch but it’s hard with long hair. I either deal with sweaty hair all afternoon or go through the hassle of washing it. I do keep a shower bag at my desk, with a hair dryer …
