Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday
I’ve been very lazy these days. All I did was walk Bella, no running, no other workouts.
After 5 days of doing nothing I said to myself “enough is enough” and got up around 5.10 am. I did a Turbofire workout. First about 30 minutes of intensive cardio, including 2 HITT sessions followed by a 12 minute stretch. I’m getting better at the steps in this program (it’s high intensity and sometimes hard to follow but I keep trying) and I like this program very much.
Total time: 43 minutes.
Easy run on my calendar for Tuesday. First time I wore my thermo shirt and pants, my gloves and my winter hat on my run because it was cold. Temperatures dropped below 0 at night. Regardless time or distance this was one of the runs that makes me feel so satisfied afterwards because I jumped out of my warm bed at 5 am and was out the door at 5.15 am to run in that cold. My colleagues call me crazy for doing that because I’m the only one at work of the runners that runs this early in the morning.
Weather:dry, little bit of wind, 0C (32 degrees)
Distance: 6.4 K / 4 miles
Average time: 7:05 /km
Average speed: 8.5 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Bob Seger – Still the same.
Recently, I bought a Zumba DVD set and tried the first workout Wednesday morning. It was an express workout of only 20 minutes and I like it very much. I had ballroom/latin classes when I was a teenager and did line dancing for a couple of years and didn’t have much trouble following the steps. I like it very much.
Total time: 20 minutes.
After 5 lazy days I picked it up on Monday and had 3 workout days in a row. I’m happy with those 3 workouts because they all went great. Have to keep moving till Sunday, after that next week will be a recovery week.
Not much to tell. Work is busy, had a meeting today from 9.30 am till 6 pm and am pretty tired by now. Tomorrow another meeting, I think only in the morning. My manager told me today he wanted to keep it short and keep my fingers crossed it will be a short one. Friday I took a vacation day. My mom has to go to the hospital to get the results from the tests that they took on her and she wanted me to come with her, just in case something’s wrong so she won’t be alone. But as I’m a pretty positive person I don’t think something serious is wrong with her.
