I’m going to change my blog posts a little. I used to post my weekly dinners on Monday, my outfits on Wednesday and the 365 challenge on Saturday.
The Wednesday Fashion Files are coming to an end. You’ve seen most of my outfits by now. Of course I will post new outfits in the future.
I will post the photos of my dinners and the 365 photo challenge in every post from now on.
I had another appointment at the fysio this morning. My elbow is getting better, the tension in my arm was less than last week. I’m trying to rest it as much as possible, only did 1 time of housekeeping last week. I’ve noticed when I’m on the computer longer than an hour my arm starts to hurt and I’m limiting my computer time to approx 2 times 1 hour a day and that helps. This also made me worry a bit for when I go back to work because most of my work is behind the computer. When I told my fysio this he said we will keep working on the arm/elbow till it’s healed. He gave me a massage this morning and I have to come back in 2 weeks. In the meantime I have to massage and stretch it myself.
Busy day today, it’s Fran’s renovation day again. This afternoon I’m getting a haircut and color in my hair, after that I’m doing my grocery shopping. Tonight I have an appointment at the beauty salon for a facial treatment.
Yesterday morning I had speedwork on my schedule. It was tough! I did 2 x 800 metres and 2 x 400 metres. I did those at the recommended pace according to my schedule, that’s good. But for the rest I walked A LOT! But I feel I will get there, just have to keep going. I’m going to adjust my schedule a bit by doing 2 or 3 intervals at the end of 1 run every week. Every distance for my long run I have to do twice. The first one I will run at the recommended (slow) pace, the second one I will run 1/3 at half marathon pace.
Weather: dry, sunny, not much wind, 18C (64 degrees)
Distance: 8 K / 5 miles
Average time: 7:02 /km
Average speed: 8.5 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Glee Cast – Go your own way.
Today I needed this for my workout:
Yes, I swam this morning. It was great, swimming is just like biking: once you’ve learned it, you never forget and it felt natural from the first lap. The pool in the gym isn’t very big, a lap is 15 metres/yards. But it’s clean and most of the times when I pass the gym there’s nobody in the pool. I had the pool to myself this morning too. I’m using a program called “from zero to 1 mile”. I had to recount the laps because the program is based on laps of 25 yards. I brought my program in a plastic folio (learned this from Shelley) and brought a stopwatch to see my total time. I ended up doing 660 yards in 30 minutes.
Tuesday: Wraps with chicken, pineapple, peaches and yellow pepper.
Wednesday: Oven dish with pork, red pepper and a crust of tortilla chips and cheese.
