The week so far

For the sake of accountability, here is what I've done this week:

Sunday - 8k run
Monday: Shred it with weights - level 1
Tuesday - rest
Wednesday - No more Trouble Zones
Thursday : Yoga Melt Down - level 2
Friday - 9.3 k run

So I did wake up early, dress in layers, bottled up gatorade, laced up and set off with a 5k out and back route in mind. Since I moved home, I have not done a 10k loop from my new home, which means I tried to chalk out a route yesterday on a road I knew would be fairly safe. The point I overlooked was traffic. And soon after I was on the route, I realised it was a bad choice. High speed traffic was rushing towards me ( I usually run in the opposite direction of traffic) and the extreme end of the road was so undulated that I found it hard to run on. Around 4.7 kms, I decided to return, compromising a few hundred metres because traffic had become pretty dense.

I turned back and ran home completing a run of 9.27 kms. I have not felt too tired after the run, and it makes me wonder if I ran at all after all. Or maybe the route was too wasy. I will surely be looking for a new route soon!

In other news- the multiple compulsities of working  while being a mom are really hurting me. Chittu's school has announced a 3 week vacation for Christmas, and I hate to leave him behind and get to work!Anyway I hope to get some down time with him over the weekend and may be next week.

What else guys??? Nothing much at my end. How are you guys doing??
