Training recap week of 1/16

This week was pretty good in terms of training. Got all my runs in and felt strong on them. I also took my first Pure Barre class. Gilt City had a really good deal on class packages so I figured it was a good time to try it. The classes were more then half off - a great deal! This way I can try the classes and if I don't like them at least they were a deal.

  • Princess Half
  • Star Wars Dark Side 10K

  1. How did you come up with a goal of 1270 miles? Does that number have special meaning?

    1. Nothing super special - I just re-arranged the numbers for 2017 to get it :)
