Today I suffered a bit in terms of motivation. It's strange, but I used to walk a lot and now it's far more desirable to go for a jog. But, I'm trying to space out the jogging a little bit more to make sure the ankles and knees will be there for future ambitions. When I talked to Tami, I asked ...
"Hmmm ... what can I eat 'round here?"
"Works for me"
It was okay, but nothing special. Then I checked the label. Wait, how many calories? OMG. Apparently, it wasn't a single serving. Suddenly, I had motivation to get my walk on. I fiddled with speed and incline throughout and got my heart rate up to around 140. So, I wasn't working hard, but I had a nice sheen of sweat going by the time it was done. I caught the last 45 minutes of Armegeddon - where, after science geeks and physically competent people save the world, ordinary folk burst out of churches and celebrate. I ended up doing 2.77 miles, and averaged a 5 or 6 incline.
For today's exercise I walker'd up in just my VFFs. I've worn them around the house on occasion, but this was the first exercise since Week 3. I've got a friend who is going to measure his sleeping heart rate with a Garmin tonight ... can't wait to see the results! My results were posted here.
