Yesterday we went to a forest/park in a village near by. It was a beautiful day and we weren’t the only one who got the idea to take a walk. It was so busy. I don’t like that when I’m in a forest, I like it to be quiet and don’t have to see too many people. Guess this spot is popular. Here are some photo’s to share.
I did the first run of my new schedule yesterday. I had to run 3.2K (2 miles) at a pace of 7:56 /km. This was hard, I ended up at 7:31 /km but I felt great during the run. No trouble to run it without stopping and my maximum and average heart rate was the lowest ever. I love my new program!
Weather: cloudy, a little bit of wind, 3C/37 degrees.
Distance: 3.2 K / 2 miles
Average time: 7:31 /km
Average speed: 8.0 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Glee Cast – Jump.
Today I did my strength training. I did the same set as last week but skipped the cardio. I will be running a lot the next 3 months and that’s cardio enough for me. I replaced it with abs exercises. It took me 31 minutes including a warm up and stretching.

I started again on Monday with counting Points. I have to be honest, I didn’t track everything. Especially not on Tuesday at the reception and Thursday at my friend’s birthday. I find it hard to think how many Points I’ve used when I’m not at home. You will see in the schedule that Sunday is blank, I did track that but the WW site is giving errors so I couldn’t see how much Points I used yesterday. I know I used up all my Free Points for sure. This week my goal is to track everything.
