Just picture me alone on a treadmill singing: "All by myself....."
This past week it felt like we were never together! Thursday we ran seperate because I couldn't bare the thought of having to run in humidity, and Saturday we ran seperate because we both had plans.
Saturday (Day 35) run 10 minutes, walk 2 minutes, repeat 2 times
Alyssa ran outside at the track at 11 am (I think she's a little loco!!!) It was exceptionally hot and she regretted her decision, but still powered through and completed the sets.
I ran at Ballys. I arrived at approximately 7:35 and they close at 8 - I got in a 1 minute warmup before having to start in on the running if I wanted to get it all in before they closed. It was strange being there at closing time, because when I first got there 2 other people were on machines (compared to the half dozen+ that are there at more reasonable hours), 2 people were lifting, and 1 person was on the indoor track. By the time I was finishing my second running set, there was only 1 person on a machine and 1 person lifting. And when I was done with my walking I was the only one left. I then high-tailed it out of there and stretched at my car. But I did it! It continually amazes me how I am able to run for these lengths of time - remember back a month and a half ago when I could barely run 5 minutes total?!? Granted my 20 minutes is nothing compared to the 3 hours I'll be running in November, but I'm getting more and more confident that I'll be running more than walking that day and that makes me happy :o)
Sunday (Day 36) we met at Ballys and did a longggggggg cross training day. 30 minutes (give or take) on the elliptical, followed by about an hour of arms and abs.
This week's cross training should be fun - Amazing yoga (stinky, sweaty, nasty, hot yoga) on Wednesday, and a spin class at Ballys on Sunday (thanks to Alyssa - goodness knows I wouldn't have suggested this one myself!)
