Some days...are one of those days

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Some days it is really hard to want your target weight more than you want that tiny piece of bread with just a taste of brie on it.

Today is one of those days.

Thankfully, they're not ALL those days.

Run #92 Ok HRM, really?

Friday, April 13, 2012

Suddenly, between Wednesday and now, my body has taken a huge leap forward if my heart rate monitor is to be believed. While up until now the high heart rate alarm has usually gone off about 5 minutes into my run and then throughout the rest of my run, today it did not go off until 15 minutes into my run. Prior to that it was actually sending me low heart rate alarms. Really? Of course along with that there was a huge dive in the number of calories I burned. This is anything but an exact science. Today I just did one long interval with no walking except 5 minutes to warm up, and a few minutes to cool down.

  


Run #91 Not rained out!

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Well the weather was so bad yesterday and the forecast for today was so bad that I didn't even put my running clothes out because I expected it to be raining. But when my alarm went of it was clear, so I bolted out of bed, into my clothes, and out of the boat, figuring anything I got in was better than nothing. I got another 2.9 miles in, yay! And it is still nice out, and appears to be clearing off! I didn't do any sprints today, just focused on the run and going slow and steady. I felt a bit tired and had to push a little at the end, but I did it.

Run #90 Countdown to 100!

Monday, April 09, 2012

38 minutes today, 2.9 miles. I ran steadily the first half, then did 5 sprints interspersed with one minute of walking, then ran a final few minutes (I didn't look) then had about a 5 minute cool down. I get to work about 15 minutes late every day now, so I guess I need to start getting up earlier on run days. This is also because when I first started running I went out for half an hour in the morning. But now that I can run better and longer my run time has increased. So I'll just have to drag out of bed earlier. Non run days I should probably get up at the same time and do resistance training. I know I need it, and it will help, it has just really been a struggle to work that back into the schedule too.

Run # 89 Tired Friday

Friday, April 06, 2012

Today I only did 2.6 miles. Dinner last night consisted (accidentally) of bread with olive oil & vinegar, some french fried, some onion rings, and 2 glasses of wine. After that I was too full for real dinner so we never got to it. I woke up about 3:30 and couldn't go back to sleep right away, then I got hungry. Finally fell asleep sometime after 4:00. So I was a little tired starting out. I decided to run to work and back and see how far that was. My high heart rate beeper didn't go off today until I had been running for closer to 5 minutes instead of 2. After my five minute warm up I ran all the way to work, then on the way back I did 5 sets of sprints, then walked home the rest of the way. Total time, 35 minutes.
