Summer Heat

Friday, August 17, 2012

Here in Oregon we have been right at 100 degrees for a couple days...Its hot, but not muggy.

I have AC in my car, and havent even used it. Its not that bad...at least to me! I love the sun, and its great to have hot days, especially with a pool in the backyard!

If it was humid and muggy, I would be miserable, but thank goodness, I was born in Arizona and can handle the heat! The rest of my family is miserable, but I AM LOVING THIS!!!

We dont get hot very often, so I am soaking up every bit of it!!! It will be gone soon!!!!

Summer can finally start for me now!!!

Our swimming pool and deck project are complete! We can swim in an almost full size pool!!! With a gorgeous cedar deck to jump off of!!

We made plans to go camping...YAY!!! Been waiting all summer for this! Camping on Mt Hood is the best ever....AND I get to play in my kayak!!! Couldnt ask for more, except if we had sand up there that I could ride my quad too!!!

That might be a little too much....But I will take what I can get!!!

Walk vs Jog

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

I am unsure of the difference right now!!!! LOL

This morning, I jogged the neighborhood and got 3.12 miles in 38 minutes. Tonight I walked 3.10 miles in 40 minutes. Either I jog really slow, or walk really fast...?

Is this normal? Anyone else have this happen to them?

    I'm not sure-but you are doing great-whatever you call it-I think someone called it Wogging- walk/jogging

    Maybe it's both! It also depends on the day and how your body is feeling. My husband and I do walking/jogging intervals (but honestly our jogs are more like sprints) and our walk is really fast paced.

emoticon Keep it up!

    I was confused on this too and read a paper on this on the internet. wished I saved it but in a nut shell....You would think it you walk or jog 1 mile or 10 minutes that you would burn the same amount of calories. a mile is a mile right... wrong. Walking you glide along as you move while jogging or running uses more of your body as you "spring off " and move your arms more. Hence you are using more energy. Stairs also use more calories then walking. From what I gathered that times and distant can be the same but the energy output is total different. emoticon emoticon
