Happy Independence Day! I will admit to indulging in a little extra wine with a small side of sugar but I began my day with 5 miles on the treadmill and a new yoga class at a local studio.
Run: Nike tells me it included beating yesterday’s pace at the first 5K making it to that point in 24 minutes and 17 seconds (5 seconds faster than yesterday). It was an easy going run but I’ve recently learned a lesson the hard way — I need body glide and I need to apply it regularly! At first I thought it was the wrong clothing but it appears to be an issue once I go over a certain distance or time (my friend Patrick might be right that 5 miles is that marker). I stopped by Pacers in Clarendon and got a glide stick…and I’m thinking this might work for avoiding blisters with the new sandals I got?!!
Yoga: I’ve been walking by Tranquil Space yoga studio (Virginia Square Metro, Arlington) on my way to boxing several mornings a week and have been contemplating more regular yoga classes. Then a co-worker told me they are now offering a summer special at $50 for the first month for new perspective members only. All you can yoga for $50? I’m in. Regular rates are not so generous so I plan to get as many sessions in as I can and truly determine if I want to stick with it as a regular member or get packs of 10s here and there. Time will tell. Today’s class was good, although super packed given the holiday.
On track this week to total 18 miles on the treadmill/trail, 4.5 hours of yoga, 2 hours of boxing, and an hour of personal training with new MyBootcamp trainer, Nathan.
