Train wreck....

figuratively, not literally!

Getting ready to move, moving, settling in.

Closest thing to exercise has been lugging boxes and furniture up and down stairs (and we had professional movers to do the bulk of it.

Sore in all sorts of new places.....

Back on the routine for input and output on Monday.

A woeful end of the week - Friday and Saturday and WEEK IN REVIEW

Friday - ran solo, early (cold outside)
Ran 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 on, 2+off. 20 run, walk 12

Woke up late today, having hit the snooze alarm 3 times.

Woke up with Meg and it was 41 degrees - too cold fore her without a snowsuit!

So besides going to Will's soccer game at 9am, Andrew's LaCrosse meeting at noon, and a bunch of trips up and down the stairs and out to the alley to dispose of the boys old boxsprings, head and foot boards, and our old headboard....I was a slug!

Monday - Run 20, walk 12
Tuesday - Blah!
Wednesday - Power 90 Cardio and long walk with dog
Thursday - Run 21, walk 10+, Swim 24
Friday - Run 21, walk 12
Saturday - Blah!

A pretty good run, solo

I got my bum out of bed early this morning and was out and back by the time Meg woke up .
It was cold (in the 40's), too cold for Meg without a snow suit.

I ran 3 on 2 off twice, then 4 on 2 off, 5 on 2 off, and then 6 on 2 off for a total of 21 minutes running and 10+ minutes walking.

Then in the afternoon I jumped in the pool for a quick 1/3 mile.

My left ankle (which I broke in 2003) has been sore and stiff ALL day.

Tuesday (Blah) and Wednesday (half Blah)

I woke up Tuesday to rain showers. And used it as an excuse to do nothing...all day (it didn't rain all day though).

Today - I also started off lame. But after getting home Jennifer took Andrew to Choir and I dropped in Power 90 and did Cardio WITH the Power Yoga part. A good sweat.
And tonight after all were asleep by 10 I took the dog for a brisk 30 minute walk and prayed my beads.

In a few minutes - off to bed.

MOMENTUM - exercise first thing, and eat right first thing (and pack a healthy lunch to bring with first thing) and I am much more likely to have a good day all the way across the day - intake and output!

The Monday hurdle - again

As usual, Mondays are hard.

Got up later than usual, after a terrible night's sleep (Meg's restlessness).

Made breakfast and went out for a run around 8am.

The run, however, was pretty good.
2 on 2 off, 3 on 2 off 2x, 4 on 2 off 3x for 20 minutes total run, 12 walk.

But the rest of the day the legs and particularly the ankle were sore.

Tomorrow - run, power 90, swim DEO VOLENTE

Finishing off a pretty good week!

This morning I got out early (about 6:10am) to get a good run in before making breakfast and taking my son Sam to his Rocket Launch in Jackson (100 miles away). From the time we left the house until we returned home it was nearly 11 hours (3 hours driving).

This morning's run -
2 on 2 off, 3 on 2 off 3x, 4 on 2 off 2x - 19 total minutes running, 12 walking.

Weekly totals.
1 Swim
4 runs/walks
2 sculpt video
1 cardio video.

No workout Sunday or Tuesday.

Not a bad week output-wise!

Rain causes diversion

Meg and I woke up together at 6:15am. Jennifer's parting words to us as we headed downstairs was "don't go running in the dark".

So we feed the dog and do the sculpt video first.
Then as I go upstairs to go our running, about 7am....raining!
Started raining about 6:59am!

It then rained on and off (the off being sunny) all day.

So at least I got the video workout done. And packing the garage was a good sweat too.

Second day of boot camp

Another pretty good day today.

Woke up at 6am (20 minutes BEFORE the alarm)
Prayers, Dog, and then out running at 6:20ish.

Ran 2 on, 2 off, then 3 on 3 off 4x, followed by 4 on
18 minutes run, 18+ walk total.

Walked in the door at 7am to Meg and Jennifer at the window (first time in a while I went out without Meg - she was still sleeping).
Made breakfast and prayed Morning Prayer

Did Power 90 Cardio workout without yoga or abs (working up to it next time).

Total workout in morning - Over an hour, 10 minutes.

Unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to go to the gym to swim as I hoped.

But overall, a pretty good second day!

Mondays are hard....

....legs are always sore on Monday from all the standing on Sunday.
Plus I get up earlier on Sunday and for various reasons end up staying up later!

But I did get up and out this morning, with Meg.
Beautiful 60 degree morning and we saw a pheasant on a friend's lawn as well.

Ran 2 on, 2 off 3x (had a hard time getting going)
and Ran 3 on 3 off 4x - and felt pretty good about it at the end.
18 minutes running, at least 18 walking.
