I pledge to:
+run at least one 4-5 mile run per week, with 2 other shorter runs
+get the exercise room cleaned out so DH & I can work out at home when the gym gets crowded in January
+get in some morning runs on my extra days off
+keep pushing to break the 30min 5k barrier (I was SO close before I slacked off again!!)
+get in my morning exercise at home at least 4 days per week
today I had asked my boss if I could leave a little early to go to a 4:30 class at the Y. He said it wouldn't be a problem. Our 3:30 appt showed up early, so it was looking good for me to be able to leave. The appt ran longer than we expected, but my boss kept telling me to leave. I stayed because we are a 2 person office; if I left, he'd be dealing with incoming calls while a client was in his office.
I decided I'd run and take the late (6:30) spin class instead. I left the office at 5, went to the Y and did some warm up moves. Walked to the corner and started my planned 2 mile run. I was feeling pretty good when I got to the turn to head back, so decided to go straight and add another mile. As I was running toward the next planned turn, I remembered that if I went straight, I'd hit a killer (but very short) hill. I decided to go for it. I got back to the turn to go to the Y and felt I could add another mile, so I went straight instead of turning.
total run - 4.1 miles + a 1 mile walk to cool down
5.1 miles in 65 minutes!
I'll take spin tomorrow night.
