Shopping = Crosstraining

This week's workouts:
Sunday 1/22: Rest
Mon 1/23: 3 mi run + power yoga class
Tues 1/24: Strength training
Wed 1/25: 3 mi run (Another social run at Run On!)
Thurs: 1/26: Yoga Rest (Well, I went shopping. That counts as cardio, right?)
Fri: 1/27: 3 mi run
Sat 1/28: Yoga class (1 hour, easy flow as opposed to my usual power)
Sun 1/29: 8 mi run

On Sunday, Michael and I hit up the White Rock Creek Trail. I hadn't been out there before but Michael ran on it last weekend and liked it and a coworker/neighbor has mentioned she runs on it occasionally. We parked at Northwood Park near Royal and Greenville and ran the trail all the way to Northwest Highway and back. It was nice to have a change of scenery, even if the trail isn't quite as well maintained as the Katy Trail. We didn't see many people at all when we started out, but by the time we were finishing up (about 9:30), lots of people were out running, biking and walking dogs. I will definitely check it out again!

We kept our pace a little slower the first half but picked it up about mile 5.

This week's plans:
Mon 1/30: Power yoga class
Tues 1/31: 3 mi run + strength training
Wed 2/1: 3 mi run
Thurs: 2/2: Rest or yoga
Fri 2/3: 3 mi run
Sat 2/4: Yoga
Sun 2/5: 9 mi run
