Ah, that's an early start for a Monday.  My flight leaves early afternoon, will get a move on now, get sweaty things in the washer, etc. and prepare to reenter real life in NYC...

:23 run, 1hr yoga

(Catch-up post)

(I see I forgot to log a yoga-run yesterday - 1hr flow yoga, :10 jog home which I am taking the liberty of counting!)

Short run

Just :20 easy.  Day 97, run 95 - 3 more days, 5 more runs, eminently doable though with travel tomorrow knocking out the second run possibility....

Long run!

Feel good about getting that one done.  2:05 easy - was out the door by shortly after 5am.  The trouble is I am just not a good sleeper - knowing I have to get up for something I consider important pretty much kills my ability to sleep soundly, I woke up to pee around 3 and I just didn't properly sleep again after that, I was popping my head up to check the time every ten minutes.  I do better in climes and times where I can get up when I get up and run in the middle of the day!

Alas, total failure of willpower - I had alarm set for 5:10 and meant to do my 2hr run this morning before it gets too hot, but I hardly slept on Thursday night and when I was briefly awake around 4am I thought - I JUST CANNOT BEAR THE IDEA THAT I HAVE TO GET UP IN ONLY ONE MORE HOUR - and reset alarm for 6:30, which seemed more reasonable.  So I have just done :40 easy and WILL do my long one tomorrow....

Day 95, run 91 - gotta put in some doubles to catch up!  Had mistakenly counted Thursday next week as final day but really it's Wednesday, that's actually a better day for me to do a longer one in the evening (hoping to put in 100 minutes as celebration of 100 in 100).  Never did make it to the gym yesterday afternoon for a treadmill run - will try again for that today.  Anyway :23 easy, then POWER YOGA!  It makes me feel a bit clumsy, the vinyasa will jump very quickly into warrior 1 and then back to chattaranga and I am always a second behind, but it is a very good and very enjoyable class, with helpful adjustments from the teacher.  I had a very sleepless night but it was so much so that I figured I might as well get on with exercise things - might see if I can take a nap now once I've showered....

:23 run
1hr power yoga!

Very good way to start the day, though I cannot seem to get out the door quite early enough to do a full thirty minutes before 6am yoga.  Anyway :23 easy and 1hr very challenging yoga!  (Mark was teaching, that is a very good class - I will hope to get it it again tomorrow....)

Timed that slightly wrong, just :23 run and then 1hr power yoga.  I think it is wiser after I've been running in a warm climate not to do hot yoga!

Not sure I hydrated sufficiently yesterday and this morning - run was fine, but I felt pretty queasy at a very early point in the standing sequence at hot yoga, had to sit quite a bit of it out.

:30 easy

I felt slightly eccentric, but I went out for my second run after B. went to bed, then stopped at the grocery store and walked home - fridge very bare.

:25 easy


I had ambitious plans for early early morning run and yoga, but was having an utterly sleepless night - at 1 I finally reset the alarm from 5:10 to 7:45.  Did get adequate sleep I suppose in the end, the run was hot but the yoga was superb!

:22 hot run
1hr flow yoga

That was nice - Brent picked me up after, but really I should jog home, it's only half an hour even if it's hot (for swim safety it really needs to be fully light IMO).  Gonna try and do that a couple days this week - I am registered for this crazy open-water swim thing in September and have told myself I only am allowed to do it if I can swim 3+/week between now and then!

:30 easy run, :40 easy swim (about 1.5K)

PM run

:20 easy.  Day 88, run 84.

Hot yoga!

Very good too.

1hr hot yoga


This climate is too warm for me - every day I snooze the alarm a little bit longer and then regret it when I'm out in blazing sun.  Anyway, got it done, holding out hope that I am going to have some lovely cool running in October and November in Oxford as a reward for heat slog now!  B. will be home tomorrow which is also helpful, he is on a very early schedule and doesn't mind "tipping" me if my night-before self requests it with appropriate specificity and conditions....

:30 easy (day 88, run 83)
