Which means that I'd need to find another cross-training outlet so maybe I'd try...trapeze arts? Who knew we had a trapeze center just a couple miles away?
Well, maybe not. The cycle machine was moving pretty slow and I think the trapeze would make me nauseous. You gotta love how unique Seattle is though!
Today, I headed out to North Seattle for a run with Super C and Riley, the cutest dog ever. We ran from their place along the Burke Gilman Trail to Magnuson Park & Lake Washington. We crashed a wedding of some sort along the water. I'm not sure what type - there were a group of women in white satin-like dresses with white head scarves and a group of young men all in white. The crowd was dressed up, mostly hovering under a large tent to avoid the drizzle, and there was music playing on a loud speaker but I couldn't make out what language it was. I'm guessing Russian or some other eastern European affair?
It was a great run to end the week. I hardly ever get to see Super C so it was nice to have a full hour to get caught up. Stats: 5.7 miles, 1:01:18, 10:34 pace.
Oh - and you have to appreciate my new cool t-shirt (you can get yours here: TMB Endurance):
I love how when I look in the mirror, the shirt is telling me to get going (you can't tell from the photo, but the print is in reverse). I usually wear a size S/M but since these run small, I ordered a L and I like the fit.
All in all, I came pretty close to my goals this past week. I fell short on my cross-training, which consisted of one 30-Day Shred Workout, 1/2 day bike commute, and one day with Yoga Meltdown. We had out-of-town friends staying with us which made it a little hard to do exercise videos in the living room. The good thing is I got all my runs in: 3 mile run, 800m intervals, and long run.
Next week will be another tempo run week, I hope to add more cross-training, and will resume bike commuting.
