New Gameplan?

Monday, January 07, 2013

Well, I'm trying to keep my habit of getting active before my day starts. Starting today though, I'll be doing double duty. Dylan's decided to start coming with me to the gym, and today is his first day. We're going after I get off of work, so I'll get two workouts each day. I think I'll keep the first workout to just cardio, and the 2nd I'll do cardio and strength. He'd like to stay for at least an hour, so that's pretty ambitious of him and perfect for me because that's how long cardio + strength takes for me. I'll try not to burn myself out. I have a wedding in 5 months, and I'd like to lose at least another 20, maybe even 30 lbs.

This morning's run was ... interesting. It's warmed up a little now that the rain has passed, and there aren't so many puddles around. Somehow though, I managed to get a sharp pain in my ankle in the middle of Mile 2. I walked a way, then picked up running for the last .25 and the pain was gone by then. Not sure what that was, but I wasn't a fan.
Between the walking of my ankle and crossing traffic, I only managed a 16 minute mile. UGH! I'll do better tonight when I get on the treadmill for intervals. I still managed to work up a sweat, so change will still come from it.

    Lil- I used to not be able to go 20 min miles, so I'm appreciative of all the progress I've made, I just like to push myself to get the most out of my time. Just keep working and pushing. It's rough and my calves used to cramp like crazy, but as the weight comes off, the running gets easier.

    EJ- I don't go to work till 4pm, so it's a bit easier for me to get outside before work since my mornings start at 9 or 10.

    Eric- I use an app on my iPhone for my gps, and I keep it in my bra so pausin it means I'd have to fish it out of there in front of traffic. Lol. I just deal with the extra time till I give in and finally get a GPS watch or make myself an arm band.

    I pause my GPS watch at stoplights!

    Impressive that you can get a workout in before work! I was looking at the morning joggers with envy this morning--it's still dark when I get up and when I get home!

    I wish I was up to a 16 minute mile. Keep going!
