Workout Wednesday in the Windy City

Not to bust your bubble if you're living outside Chicago and checking out this Fit-Ink post. A couple of cool events flew threw my inbox in the last few days that I wanted to share. Whether your workout is in a rut or you're seeking some helpful tips for your next race day, there's something for everyone around the Windy City this evening. I'm just bummed that I can't go to all three.
  • Pilates for Runners. Check out this seminar at the Fitness Formula Clubs' Gold Coast location beginning at 6 p.m. Granted you have to be a Fitness Formula member to take part, but it sounds full of tips for how runners can improve their strength and conditioning off the pavement. Experts will be on hand to show you how a Pilates workout designed to strengthen your core can not only improve your endurance on the run, but leave you breathing better and in better form.
  • Tour de France Viewing Party. The 11th stage of the Tour occurred today and you can catch all the action on the big screen thanks to the Element Triathlon Club. Head over to Brasserie JO for delicious French eats and post-work treats during the Happy Hour from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Did Lance advance in the rankings? Plus you can have your chance at winning a new bike from Kozy if you guess the correct stage winner.
  • Vision Quest Expert Series Clinic. For all of the triathletes beginning to fret about those races coming up as summer wears on, this one is for you. Charlie Cunnick, a VQ coach and former Northwestern University swimmer, talks about how you can swim faster and improve those oft-dreaded times without adding yardage or pool time. He'll offer up some tips and theories you can take to that next practice. The event begins at 7 p.m. adjacent to the VQ Chicago facility, at The Goddess and Grocer at 2222 N. Elston in Lincoln Park.
Or the other viable option is to spend an evening on the Lakefront. Looks like those storms haven't decided to breeze through so it could be a nice night on the path for a bike or run, or hitting the lake for an open water swim. Posted by Kate
