This week was not as good, in some ways as previous weeks. I only made it to the gym 4 days. We were out of town 2 days, one day going in to Little Rock and another day driving up to Bentonville (home of Walmart corporate offices) to visit my mother-in-law. Took Sunday off as an extra day to rest sore muscles. My weight was up 1.4 lbs from last week.
In other ways, though, this was the best week yet.
I started by spending the whole workout one day on the track, walking two laps and then running (slowly) 2 laps. Ended up running a total of six miles.
The next day, I started by running and made 20 laps before walking. Twenty laps = 1 mile! 😉
On my next trip to the gym, I didn’t run, but extended the workout a bit longer to make it to 2000 calories, as calculated by my heart monitor.
Yesterday, after 2 days off, I started with a slow run. After hitting a mile I kept going. While I would have liked to go further, At 40 laps — 2 miles — my slow run degenerated into a fast walk.
And I’ve added a new category to Exit78: running!
