accountability day 4

Sunday, December 09, 2012

saturday dawned sunny and sparkly, and turned out to be perfect for running in ice bugs - running shoes with studs like studded tires. it was cold, in the teens, so we waited a bit for the temperature to come up, and then had a fantastic 5-mile run on a snowy white winter road. perfect conditions, and felt really strong through the whole run. the fitbit measured the distance about the same as the garmin. still getting used to the fitbit and syncing it with SP; it looks like the distance and time that are logged on the SP fitness page are the active and very active minutes, which match running time and walking time (like when we go for walks, but not very energetically). weight was awful, probably a combination of the restaurant meal and having run out of one of my meds for two days, but we ate really well yesterday - a huge kale, quinoa, black bean salad dressed with lime juice and red wine vinegar for lunch and minestrone soup with a green salad filled with goodness for dinner, dressed with balsamic vinegar. felt good and healthy after the previous day:-)

and i continued the ST emoticon streak. not too much, but i'm going to try to step it up this week.

so the stats:

december: 19.5 miles
2012: 577.3

december: 22.6 miles
2012: 1,004.2 miles

    Absolutely beautiful! I can't wait for it to start snowing here. I don't usually voice this because those around me don't like winter as much as I do.
