I needed the calorie burn because I have not been staying in my limits as faithfully as I should. It seems the last month personal discipline has been a challenge for me. However, it feels like I am turning (slowly) in the right direction. My weekly mileage last week was 17 miles, this week I hit 20. My goal is to stay as close to 20 miles a week for December as possible.
Saturday the treadmill defeated me and I hopped off after a 5K. I did get some upper body work accomplished, but I know I didn't push as hard as I could have. The gym will never be my favorite place, but the weight workouts are needed. I still would like to lose a few pounds, but my love of wine seems to be winning out for now.
Friday I ran outside before the rain and sleet started 7.03 miles in 1:08:44
9:41, 9:27, 9:58, 9:24, 10:11 9:52, 9:55
I don't now what it is but that fifth mile is usually where I dip a bit.
My Garmin Forerunner 110 is a prized possession. I haven't entered the smart phone era yet so it has been a great tracking device that doesn't come with a monthly payment attached to it.
The icy weather should be gone by Wednesday and hopefully I will report my running resumed with a long run.
