Weekly Workouts Roundup Wk 2: SBBC challenge

Happy St. Patty’s day!

This weekend, I decided to cut my mileage short as my IT and right leg is better, but I want to be sure it’ll be gravy for next weekend’s half in Austin! Yesterday, I did 8 (instead of my planned 10) easy long run miles, followed by over an hour of hot flow yoga- boy did I need some stretching out! I’m starting to feel like my legs are screaming at me from running and running since last summer and will welcome a ‘break’ come May!
PSA: Runners! Be sure to stretch more! I know I’ve needed to commit to this too!
I studied and studied yesterday (knocked out 3 chapters this week) so that when we take our trip, my OCDness won’t have me stressing out 😉
So, today I did my 6th #13in2013 ‘race’ virtually, an upper body power superset circuit, and more yoga! (Yay for free yoga for runners on Fios 😉

    You are definitely wise to cut back the running before the half. Enjoy Austin!! Wish I was a little closer, I would have loved to meet up!

    Can’t wait to hear how Austin goes. I really need to try yoga – I think between running and CrossFit it will help!!

    I want to go to Austin so bad! I love Texas in general and could live there, but only during the winter.

    My workouts this week were great! First time since my injury in August that I have broken 30+ miles in a week! Looks like you got in some great workouts too.

    I have the issue of not stretching and rolling enough after runs. Thanks for the reminder!

    It depends on what I am studying but I really like to put on music on that is less lyric based or lyrics that are hard to understand so I don’t get distracted by the words.

    Great workouts this week! Love the pics. I am so excited for you and Zooma Can’t wait to see how you do!

    I study better with quiet music with minimal/no lyrics. Sometimes classica, sometimes house/trance,

    I can’t study to music otherwise I start to sing or dance, it is a curse (or a blessing in disguise!). I was a ballet dancer for a majority of my life until I had to have a hip and two ankle surgeries so whenever I hear music I just start to sway. To keep me focused I turn on the news or the history channel as background noise that isn’t overly distracting.
