i've been thinking about this week for the past 923.5 miles <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
m: 0<br>
t: 4ez 9:30 pace, empty tank<br>
w: 6 w/3x1300m at 6:20 pace<br>
t: 3.5 8:23<br>
f: 0<br>
s: 3.5 8:23<br>
s: 28 w/26.2 2:59:35<br><br>
total: 45<br><br>
ps - i just remembered that 800m race. the guy from norway won it on the last 100m sprint. athens olympic finals, right? usa johnny gray led it through about 550m, then the entire field blew past him... he's dying in the background there...

Dear Soos, you may lurk at the swimming thread all you want, but even better, post some<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">! Taking to the hills is a great advice, and I am going to incorporate them slopes this week. My "bits" are still a bit squeaky, though, so my motto continues to be "easy does it, grasshopper". And thanks for your tireless and suberb job on this thread!<br>

Sans Souci, this is such a joy to wake up to on a dreary Monday, thanks so much!<br><br>
My Monday pilates/yoga fusion class (that I teach) has been dropped as of this week, so I'm going to need to figure out how to reshuffle my running and x-training, since that was the one class that I actually did along with teach it, and it was making a difference. But now I can take the level 2 yoga class on Mondays, which I had not attended since September (good news), though I don't know my strength ability afterwards to run (bad news). So we'll see how the week unfolds. Heh, seems like I may have absorbed some of that chatty student's karma, ya think? <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Mon...........1.5 hr yoga, 3 miles.......................................1.5 hrs yoga, 3 miles<br>
Tues..........8 miles............................................. ............7 miles<br>
Wed...........1.5 hr yoga, 1 hr pilates.................................1.5 hrs yoga<br>
Thurs.........8 miles............................................. ............10 miles, 1 hr pilates<br>
Fri.............1 hr teaching, 3 miles......................................1 hr teaching, 1.5 hrs yoga<br>
Sat............1.25 hr teaching, 2.5 hrs restorative yoga/Reiki...1.25 hr teaching, 3.25 miles, 2.5 hr R&R<br>
Sun............6 hr yoga immersion workshop...........................6 hr yoga (all hips!)<br><br>
projected: 22 miles, 11.5 hrs yoga, 1 hr pilates, 2.25 hr teaching<br>
actual: 23.25 miles, 13 hrs yoga, 1 hr pilates, 2.25 hr teaching<br><br>
A bit of shuffling was done, but all in all, a good week! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Sa -- 60 min spinning bike, 2000 yd swim, situps/clamshells/planks<br>

Here's my plan for the week, subject to change:<br><br>
Monday - 40 mins elliptical, 15 mins stretch/cooldown<br>
Tuesday - 3 miles<br>
Wednesday - 20 mins stretch<br>
Thursday - 3 miles<br>
Friday, Sat & Sun - not sure as I'll be away at a conference but hope to hit a treadmill at least, and some free weights.<br><br>

SS, you made it fun to come back into the office today, just to see the wunnerful post. This week is still lower-mileage than I've been seeing in a while, but I'm micro-tapering for a weekend 8K. It goes like this:<br><br>
M - :40 recovery. <b>7k</b><br>
T - 1:10 w/4x4min hills <b>11.7k. bleh.</b><br>
W - 1900m swim, strength <b>1900m, 1h yoga</b><br>
T - Track <b>6.2k of sharpening</b><br>
F - Off<br>
S - "Z1 shuffle for 25 minutes, then do 4x100m accelerations." I like how this woman adapts to my own language and feeds it back to me. <b>5k</b><br>
S - 1:20, including an 8km race. My goal, sub-38:00 <b>8k, <span style="font-size:large;"><span>37:21</span></span></b>, and WU/CD<br><br><b>Total: 48k for the week.</b>
