I did my run outside today...

Monday, January 07, 2013

... and, boy, was I huffing and puffing. I wore ice grippers on my shoes since there was ice under the snow on the road. I did not slip on my run and I seemed to be all right from my fall down the steps yesterday. I hit the edge of each one as I slid down the steps. Lucky for me, there was only 5 steps. It is times like that when I pull myself up and am thankful that I have been working out these past few years and have a stronger body than I did years ago.

Back to my run, I did about three miles doing one of the cadence and acceleration gliders drills and magic mile from the Jeff Galloway app. I did not have my garmin and went back and forth on the more level spots on my route and when I finished my Nike + registered close to the mileage on the app. So, I think my pace was what it was supposed to be for the ratio I selected for the walk/run.

It was good to run outside again; the temperature was above freezing. I missed the high temp for the day, but it felt so good to run and not have to stare at a wall.

    There should be a tax on stupidity; there would be no national debt!

Happy New Years

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

I hope you all had great holidays, now it is time to move forward and decorate that good things jar.

What a great way to stay focused on the positive.

Have a happy day today!


I Recovered Quite Nicely, Thank You

Central MN received a cold blast so I did not want to run outside and I just could not motivate myself to go to the gym. I opted to do a Nike Training routine from their app. I choose a more 45 minute advanced level and pushed through. Then did a 15 minute cardio routine.

My muscles were a bit sore the next day, but not as bad as I was expecting them to be. Yeah! I do not want to be sore after my workouts but I do want to get stronger.

    I'm ready for these sub zero temps to go away also.
Good for you on the exercising. I'm sticking with my treadmill and pool. I keep telling myself to add more but time always seems to run out.
I hope you have a Wonderful New Year.

    Sounds good, try getting in some protein with in the first hour following your workout to reduce soreness later.
