Week in Review: June 20 – 26


M: 3 miles treadmill
T: 4 miles treadmill + 2 miles commute
W: 2 miles commute
F: 3 miles treadmill + Yoga + 2 miles commute
Sun: 5 miles road

Total miles run: 15

Thoughts: A great week, mostly for the fact that – despite heading to Buffalo for a wedding – I stayed on track with my workouts. This was a pull-back week, so next week looks a bit daunting by comparison – the long run jumps to nine miles.


Week in Review: June 13 – 19


M: 3 miles treadmill
T: Yoga + 2 miles commuting
W: 7 miles road + 4 miles commuting
R: 3 miles treadmill

Total miles run: 13

Not a bad week overall, although I missed a three miler on Sunday to help a friend with moving an elliptical she bought on Craigslist (as one of my housemates said, I was her “heavy”). I’m glad that I’ve been able to maintain some consistency with my yoga practice, and I’d like to get myself into the habit of practicing at least twice a week.

After a pretty rough semester – arguably the most difficult semester of my academic life – I’ve decided to come back to blogging. I’ve started training for a fall marathon, so I need this blog to keep myself on track. I was on track until February, when studying for my M.A. exam sort of took over my life. Over the next few days, I’ll be making some catch-up posts on books I’ve read and on my mileage.
