This week, Bob and I began our run around the lake on the tale end of a road race for which we were not registered (complete with fangirls and water stations). We toyed with the idea of crossing the balloon-laden finish line, but in the end, we bypassed the cheering crowds and pushed on with our workout. I have to admit, my winter on the treadmill did not prepare me for the windy hills of Worcester, but all of the friendly Worcesterites made the toughest part of our route bearable.
What’s on my ipod this week? Nothing but Shakey Graves to keep me moving.
I wound down my workout with Robin’s power yoga class. Robin knows how to work your core, and help you tailor your form to ensure that you get the most out of each pose. I read somewhere that people who don’t do enough yoga can develop a “stress tummy”, so I’m doing my best to become a Saturday morning regular before bikini season rolls around.
Reward: As a reward, I treated myself to an incredible meal at Picasso: Grilled sushi grade ahi tuna with hoisin-ginger glaze, served with peanut soba noodles and grilled baby bok choy. Chef Ari Pugliese, uses plenty of local ingredients to create other worldly flavors that are always worth the drive out to Barre.
