Workout results 7/20

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Well it was not exactly the start I wanted to the week, but I still had a fantastic run. I started off for my run last night and my garmin was dead, and I do mean DEAD! It had been charging since Friday but for some reason it was not working. I had to get out for my run so without my dear and beloved 305 I took to the streets. I have no idea how far I ran or what pace I was running but I will say that my intervals where wonderful. I did sprint intervals with a slow run for recovery for 17 mins then I walked for 14 mins as a cool down. The sad thing is that 2 of my intervals may have been my best ever and now I have NO way of recording my speed, a cruel joke! LOL! It definitely felt like a PR run but I guess we will never know. The important thing is that I got out there and did my best. Today is my swim and strength training day. I think continuing to alternate my days of running will help my ITB. It felt strong last night and I had no pain running.

Totals for the day -
Time - 31 mins of sprint intervals and a cool down walk
Calories burned - 332 ( from sparks calories calculator)

Here are my goals for today.....
1. Drink 1 gallon of water - done
2. Take all vitamins and supplements - done
3. PT stretches/ foam roller - done
4. Stay within calorie range - done - 1,601 calories consumed
5. Ice my knee at least twice - done
6. Complete scheduled workout - done

    I've had the Garmin die on me just before a run, too and I don't like it (mostly b/c I'm a control freak). BUT... you had a great run, regardless of how far or fast it was, and that's what really counts.

    I think it's fantastic that you got such a great run in AND, to be honest, it might be just what you need- a day without that Garmin! I think being in tune with your body is totally awesome at times, too. I stopped running with my Garmin, because I was depressed about my times and that was taking away the joy. Now, the Garmin is an awesome tool and I'm actually looking forward to using it again, but first, but I also just LOVE the feeling of running for running's sake and I, personally, need that from time to time.
    So, be happy and enjoy the fact that you might never know--- letting go of numbers and such can be really good for the soul!

    Happy running girl!

    Wow Jen! You drank a whole gallon of water this early? How do you do it? It takes me throughout the day to finish one.
