Goodbye Ordinary

Through the Woods

Posted on: July 26, 2013

Yesterday was our second day running in the woods with my new shoes :P.

Today is definitely going to be a yoga only day because the running has caught up to me finally and my calves are sore.

Last night’s “run” was intense. It was Week 2 Day 3 of couch to 5k. We are testing out all of the “trainers” to see who we like best. Wednesday was Johnny Dead, last night was the Sergeant. Anyway, since Wednesday we tried to find the lower trail (that kind of loops around the woods) and we couldn’t, and the monster had trouble going through the higher weeds, we decided to just go back the way we came… which had been downhill.

Bad idea. We missed an entire “jog” cue because it was on the steepest part of the hill and just hiking up it I thought my lungs were going to explode. Eeek. Not doing that route again.

Our total (for the app) was 1.99 miles in 31 minutes, but we weren’t quite home yet when it finished so we went just over 2 miles. So going into week 3 we are sitting at 11.7 miles with the app. Not too shabby, especially considering there have been a few days we’ve done extra, and then multiple walks without the app. So yay for getting up and out!

Last night before bed I did a little yoga to stretch out those calves, Achilles, and hammys. Then of course I felt like doing some back bends and even some push ups too! It was just a jumble of “oooh this feels good” “mmmm now this part feels neglected”… but it was nice.

Tonight I’m planning to do yin as recovery.

I’m SO missing the studio. Kath, come homeeee!
