421.49 to GO- Week TWO of walk RUN walk

Monday, October 16, 2017

Quick pic from our cool down tonight. Sunday I headed out to the lake and had only enough time to walk 2.69 miles. (stopped on my way home between grocery shopping & dinner). Today, Monday- met Jim at the lake for a quick workout- we got in 3.34 miles in 1 hour ten minutes. Not very speedy by any account, but not as bad as it looks. We got stopped by a camper and questioned about where is this, where is that... how far to town, why are the showers not on.... and also a potty break or two without pausing the app- so all in all probably a lot better than it looks. Our max speed was 6.4 moving along. Average speed, even with the stops and being apparently park rangers, was 2.9 mph. So, I'm going to take that as overall an improvement.

We are signed up for the Turkey Trot in Madison, so that is plenty motivation to keep working out. The bad news is that I have two VERY busy weeks ahead of me and this is going to be a challenge to get this house whipped into shape, me continued workouts, take care of all the horses, cook meals and homeschool the kids... OH and edit a large photoshoot and deal with ongoing orders, WISH ME LUCK FOLKS>>>> cuz I'm gonna NEED IT>>>>>

(by the way, the workout is feeling great, heart rate was between 73-156, there was a hill)
Intervals today were 10 sec run/ 30 sec walk for 16 minutes, next workout calls for 19 min.

~Blessings and Love,

    You have to be a great organizer to keep everything you do on track - and get in your walking. emoticon

    Hi KLTORE, I am so excited that Jim is going this with me, I got all the walking by myself up to 5 miles and he started to join me after I made it a priority and told him how much it helped me reduce stress. And we love to walk together. I got the workout charts out of Jeff Galloway's book, "The Run Walk Run Method" on page 65.
    We are on week two. Found him through a podcast called the 'Extra Mile Podcast; Galloway edition' and kept on listing to that podcast, and went on to buy his books etc. Am still overweight - I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and annoyingly it makes it a breeze to loose hair; weight not so much! That is why you will always see me with a hat on in my pics, if only this disease made me loose the weight and GROW the hair!!! emoticon emoticon
