Another week flew by. And a cold week at that.
We went from 70s to 30s with no intermediate temperatures this year. So some are making their (annual dream) plans to move to a warmer clime, while others are pulling the snowmobile logo jackets out!
Monday: off. Thought about yoga when I got home, but no. Some days, even though I know it will make me feel better, I just can’t get up the gumption after work.
Tuesday: Planned on a 2m morning run. But decided to change it since my knees were a bit achy. The fall weather is not being kind to them. So I started with a 5 minute warm up at 3 -4 MPH, then 1.5 miles at 6 -7 MPH, then a 1 minute cool down. I did a nice yoga stretch session when I got home that night. And the knees survived!
Wednesday: off. I had planned on an evening workout of yoga and weights, but my husband had had a bad day and we ended up talking til it was time to feed the horses– and ourselves.
Thursday: Did a morning treadmill walk preset for 20 minutes, which has several different intensities and equaled out a mile. Short, but I had planned to walk Daisy that night to get a bit more distance. Unfortunately, fall is upon us and it was just too dark. Not that she would have cared, but I did!
Friday: Wanted to do an outside run, but it was windy and cold. So I took Daisy out for a short walk and we ended up doing 2.10 miles (watching her little ears flapping in the breeze as she trotted along) in 35 minutes . I followed that with 3 miles on the treadmill running at 6 MPH for the first mile, 6.5 for the second and 7.0 for the last. After resting for a bit, I took Charby out in the back field for 26 minutes. But no posting while trotting, as I figured my legs had done enough for the day!
Saturday: Rain. Cold, wet Rain. We finished our project of covering the boat. We decided not to shrinkwrap it since we wanted to be able to get in and make improvements over the winter. Ok, my husband wants to get in and play with stuff over the winter. Meanwhile, over the course of Friday and Saturday we built a pole shelter that should be reusable for several years. Although we put so many screws in to make it secure, it may take three days to take down next spring! After all that, I just did an easy 30 minute walk on treadmill. The rain came in shortly after we finished the shelter, so riding was not an option. Somehow, I doubt Christopher Robin was unhappy about that.
Sunday: More rain. Blech. So it was the treadmill again. I gave Daisy a hair cut and bath–she looks so cute– before getting on to do 32 minutes at 3 to 4 MPH intervals. And then house cleaning. Not exactly a relaxing day, but I felt good about the upcoming week.
