|Pleasanton Ridge -- Exposed climbing, but beautiful.|
In workout news, I had a great week. Possibly the best week in at least 8 months.
Percentage sub 9:30: 9%.
Walking: less than 10% (unless you count the hiking on Saturday's long run, but I don't, uphill cardio counts by effort, not speed).
Yoga: 75 minutes in the studio on Friday (still sore)
Tabata: 7. Only 4 more to make-up.
Saturday's day out at the Pleasanton Ridge Trail with a group of local running ladies was too much fun. I can't believe how lucky I've been with the friendships I've made with local runners thanks to the Internet and social media -- it's definitely one of the best things that's happened to me in the last several years.
|It's not fair that 2 of these ladies are moving from the area and I just barely got to know them.|
|Most of the trail looked something like this (photos thanks to Cat)|
|Trail Run? Trail Hike? Whatever. It was a great way to get in a good solid cardio workout while spending time with friends.|
Overall, I'm feeling very good about my slow ramp-up in fitness over the last several weeks. I've got two upcoming events:
1. Pace a friend at the Seattle Rock 'n Roll half marathon on June 13.
2. The Corrigan Sports Sunnyvale 10-Miler on June 28.
I'm still looking for a few more Summer runs to use as motivation for training, so if you're local and you've got any suggestions, send 'em my way.
