Another blustery day. I am so over Winter! Can we have Spring now? It snowed off and on for most of the day, but we didn't get enough snow for me to go snowshoeing tomorrow. I know we have another couple of months of this though.
I got most of my workout in at the gym today. I only had to skip three of my regular ST exercises in order to get finished in time to make it home with enough time to shower before my company arrived at 2pm. I ran for 35 minutes on the treadmill, so with warm up and cool down it was 40 minutes. I am hitting the 5k mark around 34:45 consistently. Hopefully I can speed that up a little over the next couple months. I put in 10 minutes on the bike as well, mostly because all the treadmills were occupied when I got tp the gym at 10:30am. What is with that? Early afternoon seems to be the slow time at the gym, as I was the only one on the treadmills by the end of my run. I prefer it when the gym is mostly empty. I am not a very patient person and waiting for a machine drives me demented.
Tomorrow is Saturday, so I will be doing my regular Saturday routine of Farmer's Market, lunch with my parents, then home to walk the dog. Mom and I plan on doing a pork stir fry for lunch. That means I will do a lot of chopping.
My Sparkcoach challenge today was to eat at the TOP end of my calorie range. I had trouble doing that and I still was under by about 100 calories. I had to eat quite a bit more than I am used to in order to get as close as I managed. I am in the habit of eating less, and it takes some mental readjustment to change that. Nice habit, huh?
So, Day 533 of my fitness streak was another day with killer workouts, as I also walked the dog 3 times, did some body weight exercises at home and put in 46 minutes on the rower. Whew, I am tired tonight. Good thing I am taking Saturday and Sunday as rest days (or rather, active recovery days).
