Missed a run

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Well, I missed my run again. I woke up to go, but I had a wicked headache, and with the in-laws arriving in a few hours I thought, "This I don't need today." So I took a couple excedrin and went back to bed for 45 minutes. The headache is gone now and we head to the train station shortly.

  Sorry, you don't feel well today. Hopefully, the visit will be pleasant (wish, fingers crossed). Tomorrow is another day, and your run will be a perfect excuse to get some you time.

Good Luck!

Run #22-Struggling a little

Monday, August 29, 2011

Well, today should have been run 23, but I was so knackered this weekend I just couldn't do my Saturday run. Sunday I didn't feel any better. So I missed one, but I'm still going. Today my goal was 3 6 minute intervals, but I may have done 2 6's and a 5. I lost track a little on the last one. The first interval was really hard. The second 6 felt good and gave me confidence for number 3, but that one was harder again--but not as hard as the first one. I'm struggling a little with feeling like I should be able to run longer. It feels like my lungs can't handle it. I feel like I should be up to at least a 7 minute interval, if not 8, but the six minute interval is just kicking my butt. Nothing for it but to do it again.


Run # 21

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Today I did 3 6 minute intervals for a total of 18 minutes run/jog time, and 15 minutes walk time. Man the 6 minute intervals are kicking my butt. The last one was tough to finish but I did. I think I will stick with 6s' next week, unless I see amazing improvement on my Saturday run,. My Saturday is kind of packed & I am not sure how I am going to even get a run in. Next week I really want to go back to MWF runs, and I am kind of hesitant to run two days in a row yet (Sunday-Monday). I'll see what the weekend brings.


Run #20

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

I'm on a Tuesday-Thurs-Sat schedule this week since I had to go to the airport yesterday morning at 5:30 am and there was no time to run after that. I thought about going after work but I was just to tired.

Today I did one 5 minute interval and two 6 minute intervals. It feels like my lungs have a hard time catching up with the rest of my body, which seems fine with it.

Running seems to be making a difference with my blood pressure. For several years my top reading has been 120, which is considered prehypertensive. When I gave blood on Saturday it was 114, which is back in the normal range. Not that relying on the Red Cross is the best way to keep on top of your blood pressure, but it is probably more accurate than the machines at the grocery store.


New (Good) low

Saturday, August 20, 2011

153.2 today. I haven't seen that weight in years. Thursday I went and bought 2 new pairs of pants. My dockers were hanging at my hips and the crotch was 2 inches below my crotch when I wore them, which was getting old. Turns out I have lost 5 pounds in the last 5 weeks, but it has been so slow it is really hard to tell, until my tracking program(FitDay) mapped it out for me today. Pretty cool. Maybe the running is helping a little. Have to get ready to go give blood.
