Two! Two Miles! Ha ha ha!

Monday, February 11, 2013

Legs aren't quite happy with me, but after suggesting yesterday that I should consider going for a longer distance than one mile of wogging, I went two this evening, broken down as follows (12 laps for a mile):
walk 1 lap, run 4 laps, W1 R3 W1 R2 W3 R3 W2 R3 W1
First mile in 11:15, ran for 3/4ths of it, second one in 13:36, half run, half walk. So total run of 1.25 miles. Felt like I could have kept going, though once I did stop, I sat and read a couple of magazine articles, and then came home rather than doing anything else at the gym (played an hour of pickleball before).

Alrighty then.

Been weirded out a bit lately by the phenomenon of eating dinner, and then feeling hungry again within an hour or two. No, I haven't had any chinese food lately, so that particular is-it-myth-or-reality question doesn't come in to play. It's not my usual pattern, as the snackaging cravings used to hit later on in the evening back in the day. Wondering if the fact that I've often going to the gym in the early evening, prior to dinner, is playing any role in that? I have a couple of other suspects/theories, but that's the leader in the clubhouse for now.

And since I started this post in a Sesame Street mode, only fitting that I leave that way, too.

    I'm afraid to ask, but feel compelled, none-the-less; what's "pickleball"?

    Way to go! I don't know how you keep track of how many laps you do. If it was me, I just know I'd screw that up somehow. My mind tends to wander when I'm exercising. I'll oftentimes find myself accidentally inching towards the back end of the treadmill until I snap back to reality and have to frantically adjust my pace so I won't fall off. I'm surprised I haven't had a major incident yet.

Congrats on your 2 miles!

    Nice! Yeah, I always work out in the early evenings before dinner and then I end up having a snack a few hours after dinner because my body just slurps that meal up due to recovery.

    Gosh, if my little legs could carry me that far. Sounds like a job well done!
