Another week has flown by–literally. The gales of Fall have blown most of the trees naked, and the days have shortened. I have done a lot of treadmill work this week. It is chilly when I leave for work and near dark when I get back. I do love fall! Not sure the horses appreciate it, as they are ones with the least attention.
Monday: I managed to get up early enough in the morning to get on the treadmill. I walked for 15 minutes, then did 17 mins of yoga. I did both stretch-y and strength poses, and went off to work feeling happy and relaxed.
Tuesday: I once more made the name of my blog an accurate one, and got on the treadmill before work again. I did a 5 minute warm up, then 15 minute run with a 5 minute cool down. I haven’t been running much, I did do it in September but then I kinda fell off. I just didn’t have any confidence in running. But my outdoors 1 mile run a couple of weeks ago, I was inspired to try again 🙂
Wednesday: off. We all need a day off, right?
Thursday: I did my arm weights and leg PT. It took about 30 minutes, and I did 3 x 15 reps. I could feel my core working pretty hard, which actually made me feel good. Again, the leg moves made my legs much better after the run the day before.
Friday: another run before work. This time after the warm up, I did a 20 minute run. I find my day at work goes so much nicer with the workout in morning. I feel accomplished, and I don’t have to worry about squeezing it in after work. I may become a morning workout person after all!
Saturday: it was supposed to rain, so when the sun was shining at 7am, I stuck Daisy in her coat and snuck out for a quick 1.47 mile walk. Generally, Daisy runs when I approach her with a sweater, but I found a coat that Velcros down her belly. She likes it because it doesn’t have to go over her head, and I like it because it covers her belly, so when her legs get wet, the bulk of her body stays dry. Plus, she is awful cute in it.
Sunday: Another Daisy walk, I felt bad that our other walk was so short. We did a brisk 2 miles in 34 minutes. I did 18 minutes of yoga (mostly stretch-y) then there was a slew of housework, followed by some horseplay. I didn’t lunge them, as the ground was wet from yesterday’s rain. But I did do a little ground work after making them purty and relaxed. They are so much fun to brush right now, their hair is thick and soft.
