1/2 Marathon Monday: Week 2

Week In Review

M - Rest Day
T - 4 miles (treadmill)
W - Rest Day
Th - 4 miles (treadmill)
F - Rest Day
S Long Run - 5 miles (outside)
S - 2 mile (treadmill)

Um yeah, I didn't really intend to have 3 rest days this week.  Oops!  Both Wednesday and Friday I was going to go to yoga classes, but time just slipped away.  So that's my big plan for this coming week - I MUST cross train!

Aside from that though, this week wasn't all that dramatic.  It's odd how just a couple weeks can seriously help endurance.  Four miles was easy on Tuesday and Thursday.  And five felt a lot easier this week than it did last.

Also, we got our jog stroller!  Unfortunately it needed some work (a thorough clean and air in the tires), so we actually haven't used it yet.  But that's on the agenda for this week (assuming the weather warms up - we had a major cold front sweep through on Friday night [knocking our power out from 7-11pm, but whatev]).

The best podcasts I listened to this week were: "The Science of Prometheus," "This American Life," and "The Infant's Brain."  Loving the Podcast app!

That's about it.  Sort of a boring week in running.  But boring is good - I'll take that too "really difficult" or "injury-laden" any day.

Jackie failed to mention that we also listened to a "nude beaches of the world" podcast on Friday when the power was out. I'm sure it would pass for porn in the 1920s, but it was pretty blah in the present day. I guess presenting nude beaches in audio only format isn't ideal.

While I run. Soooo much more interesting than listening to music!
