Last week's Garmin uploads.
It feel like I've been on a good roll this month with working out. It's been a long time since I've exercised so many days in a week. And as you can see by the mileage in the image above, I'm not going out there for long distances particularly, but I am going out often, getting some consistent exercise via running and walking. While the going is slow and sweaty, I feel good, and I like starting my day off with a run or a walk. Plus, it doesn't hurt that I have zero guilt when I'm sitting in my air conditioned house, knitting the afternoon away - because I already got my exercise in!
Running without doing intervals is going well. On Saturday's 3 miler, Diane and I ran 2.25 miles before taking a break! We were going to break at 1.75, but then decided to go for 2 miles, but then we were at the top of a hill and couldn't resist running the downhill, so that's how we managed to hit 2.25. Not bad, especially considering the heat and humidity. And on Monday, we knocked out our first mile in pretty good time, took a short break, ran another mile, and then ran the half mile back to my house. I think all of this effort will show up better once the weather gets a little cooler; for now, I'm not setting any speed records, but I feel good about the changes I've been able to make with my running.
Not much else to report on - it's pretty much run, sweat, repeat. But I'll be getting a break from this weather in August, when I go to California for a visit. Right now that's keeping me going, knowing that I'll get to run in some cool beachy morning weather...and I cannot wait!
