New Challenge - Day 3

Monday, January 10, 2011

N~Calorie range is 1560-1910 - Today, with 5 freggies included, my calorie count is 1983 so I'm a little over.
E~Exercise - 20 minutes done. I'm opting out of the gym program today. I did 15 minutes of tobogganing (too fricken cold) and a 98 minute run on the treadmill. I feel done.
W~Wellness - I slipped up and grazed through 2 extra crescent rolls BUT I realized it right away and didn't eat the final two so that's something... I feel like this has been a good day. My meals were planned and everything fit into my calorie range. Even with the slip, I am only 73 calories over. Considering I just burned over 1200 on the treadmill, I'm okay with that.
15 points.

It snowed here yesterday and today. When we left for running this morning, the snow was drifted across the roads. By the time we were half way to the Running Room, I knew that I would be renewing my friendship with the treadmill sometime today. A 12 km run that, on a regular LSD day, would take me 84 minutes took me 98! When I realized that I was going into overtime I started to get a little loopy. I'm NOT a treadmill runner and I now have a new appreciation for anyone who CAN run on the dreadful things. All the power to ya. Hopefully, it'll be another 3 years before I have to get on that thing again. Paul's doing his run now. I'm *supposed* to be showering but I'm sparking.. shhhh.
It's getting late tho' so I *should* get to bed. I still need to make a lunch, too. I guess I'm outta here.
Til next time!

    I hate the treadmill too - it's awful. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who is slower on the treadmill than on the road. I have a couple of friends who swear the treadmill is easier and are faster when they use it. I hope you get some better running weather soon!
