The Fairest Week In Review: 6/13

Across the Bay 10K

Gotta start getting used to these outdoor runs, since I’m losing my gym.

Sunday | rest
Post-ZOOMA Half chill time.

Monday | walked 2.1 miles outside in 35 minutes; 70 minute ballet class

Tuesday | ran 11.11 miles outside in 2:00
Probably I shouldn’t’ve done this so soon after ZOOMA, but it was such a lovely day for a run I couldn’t resist.

Wednesday | walked 3 miles outside in 50 minutes

Thursday | walked 2.13 miles outside in 35 minutes; 70 minute ballet class

Friday | ran 6.23 miles on the treadmill in 1:05

Saturday | rest
Walked a LOT, though; Pat and I went into DC to see the New York City Ballet at the Kennedy Center, among other things. Hooray ballet!

Although I continue to largely stick to my off the cuff race plan, I did sign up for another race this week – the Across the Bay 10K. I’ve wanted to do this race for years now, but it’s always the same weekend as the Wine & Dine Half.

Whelp, for the first time in 3 years there’s no W&D for me, so I’m open! And when a friend asked if I wanted to run it, I couldn’t resist. I did buy race insurance, though, which is unusual for me, but with my schedule being so uncertain I think it’s worth it for the peace of mind.

Bonus: through combined peer pressure, I have successfully convinced Elizabeth to run it too! It will be her first 10K ever, so of course I’m going to pester her to blog about it.

Anyway. The Twilight Bark!
