Long week!

Friday, September 23, 2011

Well, the 5K training is going well. It's nice to have a varied workout schedule. My only complaint is that when logging my miles, I don't like that the fitness tracker "estimates" how fast I'm going and then figures my calories for me. I've burned twice as many calories as my tracker tells me. Annoying, but at least I know how many calories I've burned. I'm alternating my walk/jog days with yoga/strength training and I'm feeling good.

In other news, I am dragging today. I have been fighting with a cold and a migraine all week. I finally got rid of the headache yesterday, so you would think that I would be so much better today, but I actually feel worse. I'm hoping a good night's sleep will help tonight. Mike and the boys are going camping tonight with Matthew's Cub Scout den, so I have the house to myself. I'm taking full advantage of the peace and quiet. I also have Sunday morning off from church (I don't have to play). We had thought about going to my parents' house, but have decided not too since I'm dealing with this cold. It will be weird going to church when I'm not playing, but I suppose that I should still go. It sounds really bad saying that I won't go, but I just don't feel right sitting in the congregation. Does that make sense? Plus, I feel for my substitute, because I always get the "we really missed you", "It's just not the same without you" comments. That's just not fair to her. So we'll see how I'm feeling Sunday morning.

Anyway, off to fix lunch. Just wanted to check in.

    I have a heart rate monitor, so I know that the tracker isn't recording right. This morning, my HRM told me that I burned 308 calories, but the tracker recorded 165. Whatever!

    Hope you feel better soon!

    I'm doing the walk/jog training. Just finished week 4, not the fastest on the block, but getting faster.

    I think I burn less than the tracker says. I sure am not losing weight, although people tell me I am.

    Have felt run down for a while, not really sick, but not feeling good.

    I'm right there with you with the migraines. I always have a recovery day afterward where I can't do much.

    Your workouts sound great. I was wondering about the calorie counter. It sure feels like I'm burning more than Sparkpeople give me credit for.

    Have a peaceful day and good weekend.

    Glad the headache is gone and hopefully you'll get some good rest today so you are feeling better overall. Will help that you have the house to yourself for a time!
