Day 515 of my fitness streak!

Monday, January 14, 2013

Taking two rest days over the weekend was definitely a good thing. I was ready for my workout at the gym today. I jumped on the treadmill and trotted out 4.5 miles in 53 minutes. That is only a 12 min/mile pace, but I took several walking breaks, so my running pace was closer to a 10 min/mile pace. I also pedaled 3.4 miles, did ST (mostly upper body, as I was pressed for time), and did 5 minutes of stretching. I prefer to do 10 minutes of stretching, but I was really pressed for time today. I also walked 7.3 miles, but Cooper had an easy day and only walked 4.7 miles of that with me. I also put in 30 minutes on the rower and hooped a little.

I had a dentist appointment this afternoon, which is why things were so rushed. So Cooper went off to the farm to play and cuddle, and I went to get tortured. Really, it isn't that bad, but I dislike having someone else's fingers in my mouth... and the noise the instruments make just puts my hackles up. The dentist was very pleased with the state of my mouth though, so that was nice. The hygenist even said that if everyone took care as good care of their teeth then he would be out of a job! (Kudos to me!) I also stopped and filled the gas tank of my dad's truck, and went grocery shopping. Fresh strawberries were on sale this week, so I bought a 2lb box. Yum!

Anyway... That took up pretty much the entire day (between the exercise and the appointment). I am going to go put my feet up now, eat a snack, pet my dog and read a good book. Bliss!

Tomorrow I will be walking, and probably rowing. Other than that I might take it a little easy. The weather has turned chilly again, though it hasn't snowed yet, so walking isn't treacherous. I should take advantage of the clear sidewalks.

    Rest days allow your body to heal. After a couple of days of rest, you are literally stronger. Good for you on having a great day. Your fitness streak is so impressive.

    I was in the middle of reading my psych eval from last week, and I had to get away and go for a walk. Seems he says the exact opposite of the last shrink. And the ortho surgeon was a fool and has not impressed me at all. I wonder at the validity of a sports medicine doc who has to wear his son's sneakers and dress shirt because his kid used his that day. Does that make any sense to you? Why doesn't he have more than one pair of shoes and shirt? Stupid.

Anyway, that means everything is still up in the air, but I did get my walk in, so I am still at a 5k every day for 17 days now. Woo-hoo! Now, if I could only sit down all day, I could work.

I am loving all the working out you are doing. You have certainly hit a stride, haven't you!?
