No creative title. No creative intro. Just jumping right into the recap this week.
3 mile run, ending at the “gym” for strength training. It had been almost 3 weeks since the last time I was in the gym, so I scaled back my workout to avoid getting too sore…still pretty sore though.
Some of the equipment from the gym was moved to various spots around campus so it could be used while the gym is repaired. This is the middle room of 3 where the free weights are:
It’s in the basement of one of the older buildings and I wonder what the original purpose of this string of rooms was.
30-minute cycle class (through ClassPass). I had taken one class at this studio before and wasn’t really a fan of their class style, but thought I would give it a second chance. Still not a fan. They do this thing where you get out of the saddle for 4 counts then sit back down for 4 counts and repeat several times and…nobody rides a real bike like that, right? I’d crash.
Partial workout at the gym, then finished at home because there are no pullup bars in the makeshift gym space.
8.2 miles – my first actually-long long run post-injury. (Don’t ask why 8 miles is my cutoff for “actually long”, it just is.)
4 mile trail run. I originally planned 4.5 to make 20 for the week, but Kara was pretty tired by the 2 mile turnaround. (It’s because she uses all her energy dashing around in the first mile.)
Followed by a restorative yoga class.
Total: 19.5 miles, 950 feet elevation gain.
What’s the minimum distance for you to consider run long?
