The penultimate week of training: better late than never, right?
Well, you see those 5 workouts? That’d be great if they were all running workouts, right?
There was one 5-mile run.
Two Uplift classes.
One yoga class.
[When did I get good at cross-training?]
During the week, I prioritized these other workouts because they had times assigned to them, and I wasn’t as good as doing that with my second weekday run and it didn’t happen; last Saturday, I totally overslept and didn’t get that run in. By the end of the week, my legs were also pretty tired from working them new ways at Uplift. Combine that and a cold I’ve been fighting all week, and Jess had me take most of this week off after another crappy run Monday.
So what about my goals?
Still trying for a PR.
A Goal: Sub-1:55:24
B Goal: Under 1:57, my time from last year.
C Goal: Under 2:00
I have a super last-minute giveaway for an NYC reader. The Tri-Mania NYC Summit and Expo takes place on Saturday at Columbia University. It’s basically a conference/expo for triathletes, and includes a keynote from Ironman World Champion Dave Scott, an interview with Amby Burfoot (awesome Runner’s World dude who won Boston in 1968) – and a Chi Running workshop. The Chi Running workshop, as well as some of the other workshops are not complimentary, BUT shoot me an email at theodora AT losingweightinthecity dot com with subject I WANT TO GO TO THE CHI RUNNING WORKSHOP! and I will pick one winner. (I’ll be traveling, so I don’t know when I’ll have reliable Internet tomorrow to use the giveaway plugin.)
Are you running a race this weekend? There seem to be a million of them. What race? Shooting for a PR?? Good luck!!
