Monday 06/01/15: Active Rest Day
I didn’t run, but Ben and I moved two carloads of stuff into our new apartment, which is on the third floor, oh, and there’s no elevator. It was actually a great leg workout.
Tuesday 06/02/15: Active Rest Day
Like Monday, I didn’t run, but Ben and I spent several hours hauling crap up three flights of stairs, and Tuesday night was our first night sleeping in the new place–wahoo!
Wednesday 06/03/15: Active Rest Day
More moving. More lifting heavy things. More stairs. I intended to run for National Running Day, but was just too tired.
Thursday 06/04/15: 5k Virtual Race for National Running Day/Nuun Running Day
Nuun sponsored a virtual 5k race for National Running Day, partnering with the Motigo app. It was my first (and honestly, probably only,) time using the app, and it was pretty cool. I got to hear some inspirational messages from Team Nuun, Kara Goucher, and my fellow BibRave Pros. I love the idea behind the app, but I just don’t think it’s right to ask your friends and family to pay to cheer you. If anything, the runner should pay a per race/monthly/yearly subscription fee that allows friends and family to cheer them for free. But that’s just my two cents.
Friday 06/05/15: Rest Day
I intended to get up and run, but I was just feeling lazy and re-set my alarm. I had lunch with my friend Emily, and went out for drinks with the Legally Blonde crew after work.
Saturday 06/06/15: Active Rest Day
More moving. Hauling things up 3 flights of stairs is a GREAT workout. We also took our bikes to Old Spokes home, which is a bike repair shop/used and new bike seller. Unfortunately, the Schwinn I scored last week needed a LOT of work, more than would have been reasonable to pay for, so I donated it to their charity program and bought my dream bike instead:
A 70’s era 3-speed cruiser. I have ALWAYS wanted one, but have never been in a position where I could justify the purchase. Now that we live in a place where bike commuting is often faster and easier than driving, I decided to throw caution to the wind, and I couldn’t be happier. She’s perfect.
Sunday 06/07/15: Run for Martha 5k Race
Recap coming soon! You may have seen on my Instagram that it was a short course, but I’ve got some thoughts I’ll share during my recap. Then I had Chess rehearsal, and afterwards, Ben and I had dinner and drinks with our friend Erik.
Yes, that’s a lot of whiskey. No, we didn’t drink it all. Not for lack of trying, though!
Now that the bulk of our moving adventure is over, I’m hoping to get back on a somewhat normal schedule this week. Here is my tentative workout plan:
- Monday: Rest
- Tuesday: 3 miles (Maybe throw in some intervals?) in the morning; run-walk with my friend Emily after work
- Wednesday: 3 miles
- Thursday: 3 miles (Maybe some hill repeats?)
- Friday: Rest day
- Saturday: First meeting of the Lake Champlain Running Club (stay tuned for a post on this!)
- Sunday: Rest day
What’s your drink of choice? Mine is vodka and soda with lots of lime. Or a margarita 😀
