HM training notes - Tuesday 5 miler

Friday, March 21, 2014

This week has evaporated! I was able to get in a 5 mile run on Tuesday, but haven't had time for anymore runs this week. Subbing has been great (really wonderful classes this week), but the time away from home and my training has been challenging. Oh well, a weekend full of laundry and housework isn't so bad:) Probably no long runs this weekend, though:( My husband and older daughter will be out of town on a father-daughter trip, so no one will be around to watch the twins while I take off for a couple hours. I could always use the elliptical machine, but it gets pretty boring after 45 minutes... Oh well - life... It's important to be flexible.

I have been able to keep up with my 30-day kettlebell challenge. The lunges have been brutal! For a few days, my legs felt like hamburger!! But all is better now :) (The missed running days have probably been a blessing in disguise in order to recover from the lunges.)

Tuesday's running stats: 5.04 miles in 54:49 with a 10:53 pace. My pace time has really been bugging me - next week I plan to push my runs a bit more and have pace times in the 9's.

    Hi Vicki,

    I know it gets hard for me to stay focused after 10 minutes. So you're doing great to go that long. I'm looking for some good workout music to get me going for longer periods of time. I use the Gazelle Glider and Trampoline for a few minutes at a time, but I know I could go a lot longer with good music. So that's one of my 'to-do' projects with my weight loss journey.

    I can't even do lunges or squats because of knee pain. So be thankful you can do them. I'm hoping in a few months the pain will go away with less weight baring down on them.

    I'm working on more spring cleaning myself the next couple of days. Have a nice weekend!
