I’ve gained this week but that’s not a surprise. I haven’t watched what I ate much although I haven’t been overeating either which I normally do in stressful situations. So overall I’m not unhappy with this result and try to get back to healthy eating all day as soon as I’m up to it.
Thank you again for all your encouragement on my latest post. I did run again today, see exercise, I didn’t want to disappoint you and myself so I tried again.
I had a meeting outside the office yesterday and had to drive 2 hours to get there, then take notes at a meeting for 6 hours and drive back home for 2 hours. I was tired yesterday evening and was in bed by 10 pm which is early for me.
As I knew Thursday was going to be a long day I took today off and cleaned my house, did grocery shopping, went running, read blogs, watched tv: a relaxing day.
Tomorrow we’re having a party from R.’s work. R. thinks I wear to many black clothes and not enough casual outfits (which is difficult with the job I have) and he asked me to wear something casual tomorrow. After inspection of my closet I realized I needed something new in a smaller size. So here’s what I bought (I couldn’t resist the other blouse so bought that too). I will wear the jeans and pink blouse tomorrow.
And … I always wanted to have designer shoes and after searching Ebay for a long time I finally were able to buy Calvin Klein pumps for a reasonable price. I’m very happy with them.
I will be back on Sunday with my race report. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
After my disaster run Wednesday I decided to try again today. I had to run 5K without walking in between. It was a struggle, it didn’t go easily but I did it. Imagine my surprise when I got home and uploaded my stats from my Garmin to my computer and found out I had beaten my 5K time (it was only 15 seconds but who’s counting) and ran my fastest run ever outside.
Although the run itself was difficult, the results gave me back my confidence in running and I will participate in the run on Sunday. I had planned a cardio session at the gym tomorrow but decided to give myself a day off so I’m fresh on Sunday.
Weather: 12 ˚C/53 degrees, cloudy, dry, not much wind.
Distance: 5K / 3.1 miles
Average time: 6:44 /km
Average speed: 8.9 km/hour
I also decided to stop with the Matt Roberts bikini program and instead use two of his other programs and mix them up: upper body and perfect legs. The perfect legs workouts will be combined with interval training on the treadmill. The upper body has 6 different workouts and the perfect legs also. I will switch between the two programs and workouts.
Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another.
