I usually workout at Planet Fitness five times a week; off days are always Saturday, and usually one other day during the week. I know I've said it before, but I'm really loving the 30-minute circuit they have. In my mind, that's all I have to do on any given day. Of course, Julia and I always get some planks done when we go together, and often we'll go use other machines on the main floor, but it's a mental thing for me to know that the circuit is enough. And as long as I'm willing to wake up early, I have people to run with, which makes it that much more enjoyable. My schedule looks like this:
Monday - Run, then PF
Tuesday - Run, then PF
Wednesday - PF (we took out the long walk since we're running more now)
Thursday - Run, then PF
Friday - PF (or rest day, depends on how I'm feeling)
Saturday - Run
Sunday - PF
Running club has been going for two weeks now - we had a great first day kickoff! What a relief, especially from a bit of chaos last season, when the other running club in town decided to move up their start date by two weeks to compete with us (ridiculous, since they are a highly competitive group of runners and we are not, so we attract different members), plus they met at the same location as us! This season, we started at "our" park instead of in front of the running store, and it was really, really nice. I had registration helpers, in the form of Joni (who was co-organizer when I joined back in 2010), Pam (who is recovering from knee surgery caused by a snow skiing injury, not running), and Sadie, of course:
Poor Sadie - she didn't understand why she wasn't running with the group!

And it wouldn't be a running club post without a picture from Blue Baker:
After our second week of running club. Jeff and I had boring multigrain bagels (there was a splurge with a side of strawberry cream cheese that we split), while Amy had that tempting blueberry scone (and bacon). Another fun morning with my running club peeps!
