I was so excited when I perused an email from Gilt City this morning (another one of those deal emails), and I spotted a deal for hot yoga at Mind Your Body Oasis located in Crystal City! The 10 class pack, normally $150, is going for $75 with this deal, and you can knock it down another 20% using the code Welcome20. I love hot yoga so I wasted no time in getting a package. It’ll be great for cross-training when I start training for my race in January.
Last Week’s Workouts + a Double Run Day
Monday: Power yoga at the gym. I love the Monday night instructor because she takes a really practical view of yoga (vs the spiritual stuff, which I can do without).
Tuesday: Unintentional rest day, but I ended up running the three planned miles on Saturday.
Wednesday: 4 miles of hill training @ 10:00 pace on the treadmill – this workout went super fast! I’ll share what I did later this week.
Thursday: Skimble core workout and foot strengthening exercises. My goal is to do core and foot strengtheners twice a week till I start marathon training.
Friday: 3 x 1600 meters on the treadmill – done at a 1.0 incline, intervals done at 6.9 with a 800 meter jogging recovery in between. This was pretty easy, so I think I need to increase my speed next time!
Saturday: 7 miles in the morning with my running group, and the Dance Party 5K in the evening! Surprisingly, my legs felt pretty good during the race and I felt like I could have gone pretty fast. There might be something to running twice a day :D I also got in a core workout somewhere in there.
Sunday: Body Pump class at the gym and foot strengthening exercises at home.
I’ll be bumping up my mileage to 20 miles this week, and my legs and feet are feeling pretty good! I think I’ll be in great shape once January comes around.
Do you do core work regularly?
Have you ever run twice in one day? How did it feel?
