Whew! My legs feel tired!

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Yesterday I took a 6 mile walk. And today I walked for 4.5 miles and then did 25 minutes of jogging intervals to end up at 6 miles after looping my neighborhood four times.

I plugged it into the exercise tracker like I'm supposed to and for the first time in a long while, I am over 500 calories burned! I burned 537 calories! Woot!

I also mowed the yard, but it was with the riding lawnmower, so I don't think I can count that... I suppose I could count the mini-workout I got while pumping up the mower tires with a bicycle tire pump...

And I cleaned out the fridge and washed all the tupperware, but that really didn't take all that long and it wasn't very strenuous...

I did lug two large bags of library books to and from the library parking lot(and I parked in the back so I'd have farther to go)...

But it was a beautiful 80 Degree day here in the suburbs of Atlanta. A little bit of a breeze for most of the day helped keep me cool on my neighborhood laps. And the pollen is finally slowing down(thankfully!).

So after 2 days and 12 miles, my legs are feeling tired this evening... but after a good night's rest I think I will be fine.

Creative Writing Prompt for Today:
The police are knocking on your door to investigate you as a suspect(A crime of your choice). What is your alibi?

Thanks for all your support and encouragement!

    Great job with all the walking and putting jogging intervals into it! Think you can send some of your energy my way? I only did two miles yesterday.

    I love the Atlanta area! A good friend of mine lives in the city within walking distance of Piedmont Park. Whenever I visit her we walk from her apartment to the park, all around it and back. Enjoy the 80 degrees! It's about 40 here today where I'm at.
