We finally had a week of nice weather here in DC, with only one day hitting the 90 degree mark. Hey, I’ll take what I can get. This gave me a chance to run outdoors three times this week. While it was still hot, it wasn’t unbearable. Still not getting the numbers I need. Hopefully, this week will bring some better mileage!
Monday: Ran 2.43 miles
Thursday: Ran 2.02 miles
Friday: Mostly walked/ran 5.62 miles
Saturday: Pilates Reformer class (50 minutes)
Sunday: Pilates Reformer class (50 minutes)
Total yoga this week: 0 times
Total mileage this week: 10.07 miles
Total mileage this year: 212.21 miles
Finally, I wanted to tell you about a fun event I will be participating in. Themed runs seem to be all the rage recently, but I’ve never done one before! All of my runs have been simply running, no zombies, color or glow-in-dark. The Color Me Rad 5K will be my first themed run, and I can’t wait to be bombarded by a rainbow of non-toxic colored corn-starch.
If you’re like me and have yet to do a color run, here’s what to expect. As you run your 5K, you will approach different color stations where volunteers will throw colored powder at you. With each new color station, a new color is added to your clean, white clothing, face and body so that by the end of the 5K, you look like a tie-dyed extravaganza! Sounds fun, right?
