Weekly Wrap: Unplugged

After running around for the past two weeks feeling a little like a chicken with my head cut-off, this week was all about recharging.

I started the week by joining a friend on Monday for dinner and a screening of the film Walk with Me. The film follows Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and explores devoting one’s life to mindfulness. I found it fascinating and a great way to begin my unplugging. (You can view the trailer here)

The next morning J and I got out of town to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, and it was a great chance to leave the demands of to do lists behind – including the training plan. While I did get some running in and time on the Arc Trainer, the workout highlight was time spent hiking the trails.

I’ll be doing my best to hold onto my zen by hitting my yoga mat this afternoon before returning to regularly scheduled programming 🙂

When was the last time you took some time to unplug?

As always, I’m joining Holly & Tricia for the Weekly Wrap. Be sure to stop by and show these ladies some love.

Wicked Half Race Report

Last Saturday, I ran in the Wicked Half Marathon. If you've been around here for the past couple of weeks then you know that my plan was to run this race as a "long run with benefits" (aka the LRB). With only one longish run of 9 miles just the week … [Continue reading]

5 goals for September

I figure before this month gets any older I better map out a few goals for the month. Run 80 miles (at least) -- I'd really like to hit 100 this month, but given my ankle's unpredictable nature I'm hedging my bets a bit. Re-establish my … [Continue reading]
