Reboot Entry day 4
Wednesday, November 02, 2011
I know, these are my usual snazzy blog titles, but it's nice to not have to think creatively for a bit. Ha!
Yesterday was a good day. No more headache at all. I was developing one toward the end of the day, I think mostly from being simply tired. None of that yesterday. In fact, I ran yesterday.
I ran not because it was on the schedule, or I had to get in my miles/minutes. I ran simply for the pure joy of running. It was no great feat or effort - a simple 2.5 miles. Heck, I walked 2 miles at lunch, so this wasn't that much further. It was good though. Really good. I felt good as I trotted along. My legs and arms working, my heart pumping, my lungs carrying on in fine fashion. It was a good run. I'm going to run 1:1 intervals now, rather than 30:30. I know I'm strong enough, and have the pace enough to be able to do it sustainably. I'd like to hit next training season with a solid 1:1 interval, so I'll work on it now during my 'off season'.
Ok, that cracked me up. Like I have an off season. I suppose I do now, eh?
Saturday - 228.8
Sunday - 224.8
Monday - 223.0
Tuesday - 222.6
Wednesday - 222.8
So the thought crossed my mind.. what if I start up running again, and gain weight. Lo! Lookit the scale results this morning.
Yea yea, I know, it could be from any number of things. IS likely from any number of things. I'm not wiggin'. Not yet, anyway. My arms, shoulders, and abs are sore from my workout Monday night. That could explain the slight uptick. We'll see.
I have a big green smoothie for breakfast this morning, followed by a surprisingly tasty Fennel Pear juice. I expected it to taste a bit more green, or even licorice-y, but it's nice and light and yummy. Then for lunch I have a HUGE salad and leftover zucchini bake from last night. Afternoon snack? A crap-ton of veggies to dip in homemade mustard vinaigrette. My mouth and tummy are going to be very happy with the flavors and quality.
How are you? I admit, I'm not keeping up with blogs and my Friend Feed as much as I have in the past. That was part of what helped make me feel a little too frenetic for a while, so I've backed off some. If I've missed something I shouldn't have, poke me, yea?
