…to last week’s exercise endeavors!  Let’s do this, shall we?

Week of March 10, 2013:

Sunday: Bike ride to work + walk in the park

Monday: Off, I think

Tuesday: Bike commute to work + groceries, I think

Wednesday: Hmm, I have no idea!

Thursday: Bike commute to work + wine night

Friday: (Forced) bike commute to work + short evening run (12 minutes: 11 minutes easy, 1 minute fast just for fun)

Saturday: Short bike ride for groceries + long hike in the woods

Total minutes run this week: 12.

It was not my intention per se, but last week became a recovery week from the half-marathon.  Or perhaps more accurately, I should say it was a running recovery week, but the cross-training was intense.  As you can see above, I biked to campus four times in a week.  Friday’s ride was forced because the university was closed for spring break, so no bus service.  All that biking effort was exacerbated by the winds, which were something fierce—it was exhausting!  This week I’m planning to take things a little easier on the bike because I’m feeling like it was just too much.  My legs have been hurting.

Just for fun, here are a few things I’m looking forward to this week: getting my fur trimmed, possibly buying some shoes to wear to a wedding at the end of the month, Thai food plus a movie tomorrow night, and maybe, just maybe, writing another one of the many blog posts that are swimming in my mind.  So much to say, so little time…

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Biking in the wind can be seriously challenging. I think after that awesome new PR you probably needed a little rest away from running to recharge the battery. I hope we'll get to see the results of your trim! I'm excited for a haircut day of my own later this week.

    1. Yes, of course! I am so excited to get rid of all this hair--it's just too much right now. I hope we get to see the results of *your* haircut too, friend :-)

      Woo-hoo! (Is my coffee extra-strong this morning, or am I just excited?)
