Another Monday, and are any of us groggy because of DST? It is nice to have the extra light in the evening, but it's not good when my sleep time is messed with. Not good at all.
The weekend fun started Friday after work. I headed to Boulder Running Company to look at running belts, and double check the fit of my shoes. Good news on both fronts: I got a running belt, which worked well on my run Saturday, and my shoes are a good alignment. BRC films their gait analysis, so they could see I'm getting good support from my shoes, and they didn't think I even needed inserts. They said I could go with inserts, but that it would only be a comfort thing. I stuck with the running belt, and felt happy the store didn't try to push for new shoes when I didn't need them.
Saturday's run was shorter than I've been running, but I was pushing my intervals a little bit, and I did a hill workout. When I got back to my complex, I was under 3 miles, but I felt good and didn't feel the needed to push for 3. The running belt past its test, and two bottles should be OK, especially once the water fountains on the running path are turned on.
During the weekend, I started and ended a new book by PJ Tracy. If anyone likes mysteries/thrillers, PJ Tracy is a mother/daughter team that writes thrillers based in and around modern day Minneapolis. Their stories are the type that take off really fast and are hard to put down. It's known as the Monkeewrench series, and the book I read is called the Sixth Idea. It's the 7th in the series, and the 8th book is being published in August.
Sunday I actually postponed Pure Barre for another day because I was missing weights. I want to get back to challenging myself with free weights, and I got my 5lb weights out and did Iron Strength. I figure jump in with both feet. I'm still enjoying Pure Barre, but now I want to push myself in other workouts too. I have kind of been looking at Cross Fit, but I don't know much about it, and I'm not looking for HIIT. I'm looking for a method where I can take my time and focus on my form and muscle activation while challenging myself. Any thoughts?
