Week of April 2 - 8


Monday: Tap class (60 min) + yoga (10 min)

Tuesday: Restorative yoga (10 min)

Wednesday: Ballet class (90 min) + restorative yoga (10 min)

Dang. This ballet class. It's through parks & rec, and is for all levels, including the "motivated beginner". I can keep up ("keep up", like, I know what the majority of the words mean and can figure out what we're supposed to do, not necessarily do everything) with it because of an "absolute beginner" class I took a few years ago through Oregon Ballet Theatre. Without that context and previous ballet-as-an-adult experience, this would be very mentally challenging (it's still physically challenging). But super fun!

Thursday: Yoga (10 min)

Friday: Yoga (10 min) + stroller run 2.0 miles (15:01 pace, 66* and lovely, early evening, 166 spm)

Saturday: Restorative yoga (10 min)

Sunday: Long run 5.0 miles (14:12 pace, 52* and pleasant, mid-afternoon, 170 spm) + restorative yoga (10 min)

Total running: 7 miles
Average daily steps: 11,320
Weight: +35 (-1 lb!)

Week of March 19 - 25

Ugh, tax season. 

I realized the weekend prior to this weekend that there were 30 days left! So I decided to do yoga every day for these last 30 days of tax season. So far, so good. Even if I can't make myself make time for anything else, fitting in 10 minutes of yoga is totally doable.

Week of March 5 - 11

With 3/15 as the deadline for most business returns, this past week was crunch time for work, plus I had a dress rehearsal and recital for my tap class this weekend (super fun! but really couldn't be at a worst time. Unless it were the weekend before 4/15). 


Monday: Tap class (60 min)

Tuesday: Stroller run 2.0 miles (14:33 pace, 55* and sunny, late afternoon, 168 spm)

Friday: Stroller run 1.5 miles (14:52 pace, 52*, later afternoon, 162 spm)

Saturday: Tap dance rehearsal

Sunday: Tap dance recital + long run 3.2 miles (15:23 pace, 61* and windy, evening, 162 spm)

Total running: 6.7 miles
Average daily steps: 9,988
Weight: +36 (+2 lb)

Dang. I had a couple days well under 10k, but I would have done 84 more steps on Sunday if I'd realized where I was for the week!

Week of Feb 26 - Mar 4

Eventually (after April 15 17), I will post something again that isn't just a workout post, I promise.


Monday: Tap dance class (60 min) + swim 500 yards 

Tuesday: Rest day (Bought a new-to-me desk to upgrade my work-from-home situation which I do in the evenings. Spend the time not working getting that set up.)

WednesdayQuasi-speedwork stroller run 1.7 miles (13:18 pace, 45* and rainy, late afternoon, 166 spm)

Plan: wu, 4 x 0.25 @ <9:00 (adj to ~9:30 with stroller), 0.25 recoveries, cd
Actual: 3 x 0.25 - 9:02, 10:20, 12:22

Between N starting to wake up during the night again sometimes (for an hour and a half at 1:30 the night before this!) and tax season in general, I'm so freaking tired this week. (Also, how in the world did I survive tax season last year when I was getting up with N every 2 - 3 hours all night, every night?!) Add in rain, and I felt accomplished to head out the door at all. I tried on the first interval, sort of on the second, and gave up on the third. 

Thursday: Stroller run 1.95 (14:56 pace, 43* and drizzly, late afternoon, 166 spm) + core workout (10 min)

Friday: Rest day (My MIL treated me to seeing Oregon Ballet Theatre Alice (in wonderland). It was amazing, great dancing and some really awesome effects through costumes and sets.)

Saturday: Run 1.85 miles (14:32 pace, 50* and sunny, afternoon, 166 spm)

Sunday: Rest day (just felt like crap - busy season, fighting off a cold, sleep problems)

Total swimming: 500 yards
Total running: 5.5 miles

Average daily steps: 10,136
Weight: +34 (no change)
