Another double week post–I need to catch up! We will see what happens next week 😉
Wish I could say I’m not writing ‘cuz I’m exercising, but that’s only part of it. I am happy to say that my workouts are getting longer, which is definitely a goal. But then the rest of life gets in the way of writing about my fun.
I did get to run a lot the first week, which made me very happy. I hit the treadmill four times, and ran several miles. On Wednesday I accidentally hit the stop key eleven minutes into the 30 minute run and simply started over. Forty minutes later, I decided a 15 minute cool down followed by stretching was a good idea. I felt deliciously tired 🙂 My knee was a little cranky, but fine the next day, so I can do that again.
I didn’t get quite as much running the second week, as we had some hiccups. On Tuesday I wanted to run on the treadmill, but we lost power at the house. It was on when my husband got home, but was off by the time he had finished cleaning out the driveway–we had a bit of an ice storm, which makes sense that we lost power. The weather people said it was going to be a warm day with downpours, but what we got was a frozen day with continuous drizzle. Ah, Mother Nature. We did get our power back, but a bit late for the treadmill. At least we got to cook dinner.
We went snowmobiling on Saturday and I was highly amused that my Fitbit gave me a ton of steps. I had resigned myself to a low step count for the day since we would be riding–I even considered getting up early to run to get some in. Of course, we left at 5:30, so it would have been really early. But over the course of 7 hours of riding, the Fitbit tracked 26,000 steps and 400+ flights of stairs. I decided to take it, as I was doing quite a bit of work, steering and bouncing around on the snowmobile. And when I went to rake the horse paddock the next day, my triceps protested quite vehemently! So I am pretty sure I worked out the day before, so I just did some yoga to stretch out in the afternoon.
