Running and Yoga in a Nutshell

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had an awesome weekend!

As far as running, I have been just keeping myself conditioned for the next racing season. I am looking for my next goal race and I am not sure where or when it will be. I definitely know I want to start my season with a half marathon and then work on my 5k time.

Thursday ~ I did an interval workout just to make sure I am getting some speed work in. I started with a 15 minute warm up, did 10×1 minute hard (I don’t know what pace because I don’t own a Garmin)/1 minute easy, cool down home for a total of 55 minutes.

Friday ~ I did one hour of running in the rain (again) and then I went to Happy Hour Yoga Flow. The yoga class was tough, very tough! She had us doing all these crazy inversions but I felt like it was a great workout!

Saturday ~ I went for a nice easy relax fifty minute run followed by an hour of Strong Yoga with a killer instructor!

Sunday ~ Another group run (a little over 12 miles, 1:35 minutes) in the freezing cold!

Basically that’s my running and yoga in a nutshell since I last talked about what my runs were; I think I left off Wednesday. I could be completely wrong!

*************************

Sunday was our first snowfall of the season and it was absolutely beautiful! I didn’t take any photos because naturally that’s what I do. I don’t take many photos. Part of that could be the fact my iPhone is completely cracked and I just don’t care to whip it out!

After my run Sunday, I took a nice long hot bath, relaxed for a bit, and then went to Target. My goal at Target was to buy a few groceries, moisturizers (I’ve realized I’m almost 30 and it’s time to start moisturizing – I’ll talk about that more after using it for a bit), and a bath caddy. Guess what?!?!?! It was a success and I left with NOTHING extra! I even shopped around the sale items in the junior clothing department but still didn’t buy! I am so proud of myself!

I hope everyone’s Monday is off to an excellent start!

Did you get snow this weekend?

What store do you always go into and leave with more than you should?

Target and Christmas Tree Shop (I can spend hours at XMAS tree shop and every time I walk around I find something I didn’t see before)

Do any hot chocolate or jingle bell runs?
