I started off the week with a plan. You know what they say about plans, right? Tuesday morning I ran through all my morning jobs; I even washed the dishes and left early before work to get horse food. My plan was to walk Daisy a mile each night, to get her in shape for longer weekend walks. Tuesday night it snowed on me, however, and it didn’t get any better for the rest of the week. Mother Nature has an awful sense of humor.
Monday: started off my day with a mile run on the treadmill. I kept it slow, and kept the speed between 4.5MPH and 5.0MPH. I tried to do my Gaim yoga dvd, but ran out of time after 26 minutes. I definitely need to plan better. I did take Daisy for a 1.42 mile walk when I got home, she was so very happy 🙂
Tuesday: a relaxing day, I started with a 17 minute walk while checking out Twitter. I have been on Twitter more in the last two weeks on my treadmill than in the last two months. I followed up with 30 minutes of my weight exercises, including 5 more Burpees. They felt much easier this week. Daisy didn’t get her walk due to snow. Blah. It can stop anytime now!
Wednesday: 30 minutes of free yoga. I learned the uncomfortable way that my brace really does help. My Warrior poses were not as easy as they could have been, holding the bent knee position was definitely uncomfortable. No snow, but a violent wind kept me from walking Daisy. I was a bit afraid I would have 14lb kite at the end of my leash.
Thursday: my goal for the day-off. Well, that was an easy goal to accomplish!
Friday: another slow mile run, followed by brisk walk cool down. My planned walk with Daisy in the evening was again beaten by Mother Nature-it was cold, wet and windy.
Saturday: Daisy finally got out! We did a 2 mile in 40 minutes followed by 16 minutes of stretch-y yoga.
Sunday: another walk with Daisy, this time the other way. I had planned on walking up the hill at the end of our road, but the wind picked up so we went down the hill. Which of course meant we had to come back up the hill, but at least the trees protected us from the wind. We did the slightly harder 2 miles in 40 minutes as well, which means she is getting in shape. When we got back I did my weights and Burpees again. Daisy laid on the couch watching me. Lucky dog!
