Hot and Cold
Happy Monday and welcome back to another week of training! This was a really great week with my first test race and some crazy weather changes. One day was snowing and other days I was in shorts- it was insane! During the week I also kept up my 30 days of yoga challenge, and started a new program in Peloton. Here's how the week went-
3 mile Run + Yoga
Today's run was very special, because it was my first snow in North Carolina! We had a pretty big snow flurry around lunchtime, so I was excited to get out and run in it. It was pretty windy but not too cold so I enjoyed the run a lot! I also did day 2 of 30 Days of Yoga in the morning with Dan.
ParkRun + Yoga + Core
This week my plan had me doing a 5k race to test out my race pace, and I decided to check out the Durham ParkRun. It was only a half hour away from me, and I got two friends to join me! They were nice enough to pace me to an 8:00ish average pace, plus a mile warm up and 2 mile cool down. It was a chilly race but very fun and definitely made me feel like I'm on the right path with my training.
I got to join up with my run club friends for a second time this week for a friend's birthday! He turned 37, so we all did a group run to do 3.7 miles together and hung out afterwards. It was so much nicer out than yesterday and I was actually sweating by the end. At the end of the day I did my daily yoga, which was a nice and relaxing restorative class. Great end to the week.
