Although I spent the first half of the week still recovering from a nasty cold, by Wednesday I felt well enough to start working out again. I hit the gym hard on Thursday, and not only ran but also did an intense lower body weights workout. Boy, did my legs feel it during my run on Saturday when I ran my planned four miles, but my legs felt like lead during the entire run.
Not only did it feel great to get back into the swing of working out, but to cap off the week I headed into the city for an hour long yoga class with fellow DC/MD/VA Sweat Pink Ambassadors. After sitting on the interstate not moving for an entire hour due to both a car accident and a road closure due to Rolling Thunder, I almost didn’t think that I would make it to yoga. Thankfully, I arrived just as class was starting, almost two hours after leaving my house! I’m so glad that I was able to get to yoga and spend the morning with some fabulous ladies! It was such a great class, and I plan to recap the experience here on the blog tomorrow.
All in all, it was a great second half to the week, and I can’t wait to make up for some lost workout time in the coming weeks.
