With two 5K’s coming up this summer I’ve been working on getting my mileage up and my speed. Last night I walked our road for a total of 4.5 miles in a bit over an hour. Not hurrying, in fact the first half I did jog/walk
but the 2nd half I had my dad with and we just walk at a normal pace with a push sometimes.
But today…today I did something I haven’t done yet I ran a full 5K. Check this out…
It’s not my fastest time 11:15 mile but it’s my fastest for that distant. So I’m getting there folks, I’m working at it all. I also rode the bike (still not liking that thing to much) and then 90 minutes on the weight circuit. As you can tell I’m off today and had no plans this morning so could go and give it my all without having to hurry to my next thing.
1292 calories burned this morning. I really wish I could do that every day and then the diet part of my life style change would be a bit easier but 3-4 times a week is the max I am able with the schedules I have. At least now with daylight savings time in effect I can get out after my daycare day and get a walk done. Next week I can only get to the gym once unless I go at 5:30 am but when I do that I can only be there an hour and a half and have to get back home for work. When I’m done at 7 o’clock at night I just don’t have the energy to work out but I do for a decent walk/jog will do that. I’ll figure it out, it’ll happen. There still the list of Allan exercises to do at nap time so it’s not like I’m doing to much of nothing. Just not as much as I’d like. That sounds weird, me liking exercise. A year ago I still called it fish flopping and hate every single minute of it.
Okay, enough for now. I got some great things at the thrift store on my way home so I need to go get them posted on my other blog.
Take care my friends and I hope that you have an amazing and awesome afternoon. God Bless!!
