Did a workout from The Firm: Total Body Toner. A complete body workout with weights. Nice workout.
Total time: 40 minutes.
I had 11K planned but the past couple of days I didn’t feel well. I decided to go out and try it anyway but it wasn’t working. My right calf was bothering me a lot too. Some days it just isn’t happening and you have to take your “loss” which I did. At least I did something.
Weather:dry, clouds, windy, 10C (50 degrees)

Average time: 07:15 /km

Great run! I saw my first sunrise of this year, weather was perfect for running and I made some new friends: sheep and lambs. They were on a closed bike/walking path where they sometimes let them walk free. You can still walk/bike/run if that’s the case.
I had to do a climax run of 100-100-200-200-300-400-600 intervals. Today went better than last week. I only had two walking breaks and stopped briefly to take a pic of the lambs. I love interval training, it is the hardest run of the week but because of the intervals the run goes by very fast. Pace for intervals: 5:57-6:12
100 time: 5:56
100 time: 5:47
200 time: 5:59
200 time: 6:00
300 time: 6:09
400 time: 6:08
600 time: 6:03
Weather:dry, not much wind, 5C (41 degrees)
Distance: 6.3 K / 3.9 miles
Average time: 06:54 /km
Average speed: 8.69 km/hour

P90X Shoulders & Arms. I love this program. Sure I can’t do all the reps yet, I don’t use heavy weights but I’m noticing I’m getting stronger and can do more reps. Not only with this program but with all my other weights workouts too.
Total time: 60 minutes.
My second worse run of this year. When I got up this morning I wasn’t feeling well but decided to go out for a run and see how it would go. Well it didn’t. Immediately after I started I felt terrible but I kept trying, I had a tempo run of 30 minutes to do. But after 10 minutes or so the cold sweat was on my back and I had splitting headache. Because I didn’t want to walk all the way back I kept running at a very slow pace and took a shorter route home. When I got home I was ready to call in sick at work but both R. and I aren’t people who do that easily. I decided to take a shower first and strangely enough after that I felt a lot better. Still not a 100% but much better now.
Weather:some rain, bit windy, 5C (41 degrees)
Distance: 3.2 K / 2 miles
Average time: 07:36 /km
Average speed: 7.9 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: I have no idea.
Except for Saturday and today when I wasn’t feeling well, I’m very happy with my other workouts this week.
