How was everyone's weekend? Mine was jam-packed but a lot of fun. I also fit in some good workouts and finished a paper, so all in all it was a quality weekend.
Friday I had class until 3:30 and then ran home, changed into a suit, and headed to midtown to manage my journal's alumni reunion. The event was a panel of distinguished alumni followed by a networking reception. It's taken up a lot of time recently, so it was really rewarding to have it be a successful event!
Post-reunion, I cracked out the Dirty Dozen, a core routine for runners. It's a great routine! I'm going to try to add it in to other run days.
I woke up a little early on Saturday in order to get in a short progression run before working at the Erica Sara Designs booth at the MORE/fitness Women's Half-Marathon Expo. I had a fantastic time hanging with Erica, Lora, Ashley, and Rachel (and Erica's mom, Judy!).
Post-expo, I ran up to midtown to get my hair blown out and a manicure before Barrister's Ball (aka Law School Prom). Many thanks to Dry Bar and TenOverTen for helping me look fabulous!
We met friends for dinner at Atlantic Grill before the Ball, then went to Chelsea Piers for the party!
I love to dance, so having lots of dance time was really fun, and it was great to see friends dressed up. Since Sourabh is only a first year, I have two more years when I'll probably go.
Finally, on Sunday I got a chance to check out Revolve for the first time. Dori and Melissa set up a free class, so I got to try out the new boutique spin studio in Union Square! Full review to come this week.
And now, on to the workout recap!
Wednesday: Kick Ass Virtual 5K and Yoga class. Legs felt like lead on the run and I had no balance in the yoga class, but both were still fun since it was a gorgeous day!
Friday: Dirty Dozen core work.
Saturday: 3.25 progression run. First mile felt rough, second mile was decent, third mile was good, and last quarter mile was hard since I sprinted it. (1) 9:57, (2) 9:16, (3) 8:55, (.25) 8:16
Sunday: 60 minute Rip Ride at Revolve. Upper body work plus spinning for a total body workout.
Not great mileage, since I postponed my long run to today due to the weekend being crazy busy. Going to work on that next week. However, very happy with the two yoga classes!
Goals for This Week:
I'm going to try to make yoga a priority again this week and up the mileage into the 20-miles range. Hopefully without any aches and pains!
• 11 mile long run (Monday) and 12 mile long run (Sunday)
• tempo run and/or speed work (4x800s or 8x400s)
• 1-2 yoga classes
• 2 strength workouts
• 1 spin class
