And this morning’s run:
I started off doing intervals of 2:00 hard/ 0:30 easy, but then lady cramps kicked in about the same time the hills started to really get to me. Once I reached the crest of the hill I was on, I walked for a while until the cramps went away. Then I ran some more, then walked some more, then ran, and then walked. The timed portion includes the intervals and the 2nd part of running. The untimed part is the walking and the 3rd bit of running.
- Don’t start your run so late in the morning that it’s 90 when you’re finished.
- Don’t do interval work on hills.
- Don’t plan hillwork or intervals when shark week is imminent.
- Don’t run in a new-to-you neighborhood when shark week is imminent.
I’ve been pretty busy today and only able to get online a little while ago, but since it’s 4:30, I really want to go home.
Who knows if I’ll get any internet at home tonight. If not, I’ll try to sort of catch up tomorrow.
Check out my bitty ponytail. It may be too dark to see, though.
Jumping with the slow rope 25 jumps each leading right foot, leading left, and with both feet.
12 push ups
17 push ups & v-ups
14 push ups & v-ups
13 push & v-ups
17 push & v-ups
Apparently the Warrior Dash made my arms & shoulders more tired than I realize because I accidentally did level 2 instead of level 3 of Week 3, day 2 for 100 push ups and could barely complete the reps.
Also, jumping with a cloth rope is a lot harder when you’re used to a speed rope, but the speed rope is a bit wild for our living room.
I was supposed to run today, but I was sad and didn’t feel like running in the rain today even though I usually love it. There was another reason, too, but you probably don’t want to know…
On an unrelated note, I’ve decided to participate in S.O.S., but I will couple it with measuring my waist, too. My main reason for this is to track fluctuations and also to possible help others struggling with maintenance (because this is still a struggle). I’m going to graph both numbers. I’ll start tomorrow because I don’t remember the exact numbers from this morning.
Oh, and 2 points today for LDLC! I was wanting secret fast food so badly today and resisted!
The best race picture. Too bad the preview is so small.
I definitely smiled for the photographer. I’ll post the others later.
