Happy Hump Day to ya. How is your week going so far? Off to a good start?
I’m back here today as usual with my weekly exercise recap. The highlight this time – I’m back to running with C25K!
Here’s a day-by-day recap.
So last Wednesday I decided to go back to running with C25K. It’s been almost a month since last time I ran and I’m not quite sure why I stopped (silly me). Anyway, hubby had a business dinner that night and I had the evening all to myself and my run.
I took my phone, put on my Garmin and off I went.
Well, all my electronics decided to crap out on me that evening – C25K wouldn’t give me voice cues when to switch from walking to jogging and Garmin…well, I don’t quite understand what I see on the screen just yet, but I think it was tracking my laps. Need to read the manual.
At some point I said “what the heck” and just ran, then switched to walking when I got tired, and then went back to running again.
It felt great to be back!
No, not really. That run sucked actually. 🙂
After my previous post I bumped up my steps goal to 10 000 a day (it was 6 000 before). Well, I’m still not hitting my goal.
But do you see what I did there? 🙂
Rest day. In all departments!
Another session of running with C25K was in order, so I set off after work for it. This time, thankfully, all my electronics were complying and cooperating, so I managed to track my run properly and get my C25K to cue me in on what to do. Happy times!
Look at that improved pace! Holly momma mia!
Good steps that day, too:
We had plans on Saturday, so I got up early to get my workout in before we had to leave. I hit the Y that morning for a killer cycling class with Johnny D. 🙂
Love-love-love the energy of John’s classes! He plays loud hard rock music, everybody is required to sing along and have fun, and we do! I came out of there drenched in sweat and charged up for the day!
After that we headed out to the Mt. Gretna Annual Outdoor Art Show where I got challenged by the food choices (more on that later in the week) and got lots of walking in!
Rest day. Food prep, cleaning, laundry and not so many steps.
Well, you know what’s coming, folks 🙂 On Mondays I teach Indoor Cycling at the local YMCA.
This past Monday I had 1 brand new person in class, and 1 person who was completely new to cycling last time he came into my class (so wonderful to see them coming back!) – as well as my regular riders.
The playlist for the ride is posted here as usual – just look for the latest number 🙂
This class left me feeling very happy. I saw my students’ form improve, I saw them working hard to achieve their goals and I heard them sing along 🙂 What more does a teacher need?
Pretty good steps that day:
Rest day, not so many steps at all – mostly sitting on my butt at the office all day.
And that’s my week, folks – pretty average!
A little bummed I didn’t get a single yoga class in this week, but such was my luck 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you had a nice and active week!
