It’s only Tuesday? Why does it feel like Wednesday or Thursday? Today started week 4 of C25K. This workout was: 5 minute warm up walk, then 3 minutes of running followed by 90 seconds of brisk walking. Then 5 minutes of running followed by 2.5 minutes of brisk walking. Repeat that and then cool down. I did pretty well. It was a gorgeous morning. Low 50s, so perfect weather for running. I was saying to John how running and walking seem so darn slow. I am used to scenery going by fast with biking. I also smile more when I am biking. Just out of sheer enjoyment.
My leg seems okay so far, although I did notice some increased numbness in my knee. It won’t be until the longer periods of running intervals happen for me to really see what is going to happen, I think, but so far okay.
I came back for breakfast and cooked up a banana bread pudding. Yum.
Since it was a cold morning, Pixie has become the heat-seeking lap missile again.
She says “Work, shmerk”
Had a good lunch today. I made up some peanut flour with a bit of honey and cinnamon and added just enough water to make it thick.
It was kind of like frosting on a coconut flour biscuit. I am totally overdosing on coconut everything. I think I need an intervention.
Afternoon excitement. We felt the VA quake way up here in upstate NY! I thought I felt something funny, and definitely started feeling some rocking. It went on for quite a while, too. That is the second earthquake in about a year. We just don’t get too many in this area (that we feel at any rate). It makes us realize how poorly our 100+ year old house would do in a big quake…
Something that actually wakes Ms. Pixie up, too.
Something that wakes me up?
Latte time! Actually, this was decaf, but it’s all good.
Scary news about this hurricane. I hope all of you fellow East Coasters get prepared. We might actually have to do some kind of preparations if it takes a northerly path. Not sure exactly what we should do other than get food, store water, store stuff that can get blown around and be glad we don’t live in a flood-prone zone.
Dinner time – Chicken thigh! (Know why? Chicken thigh! Anyone remember that??)
I was popping blueberries while cooking, too. I kept starting to grab the tortilla chips off of John’s plate while we were getting dinner ready out of old habit. So, I started eating blueberries instead.
John and I went for a walk after dinner and headed up to the new cafe. However, they have new hours now and close at 6 pm. No more evening coffee. Boooo. So, we stopped at Dunkin Donuts. Full of all that grainy goodness.
They just made some fresh decaf, so that is what we both had, although John also had a donut!
Ended up doing 5 miles today between the morning and evening activity. Surprising how it adds up. I am now eating a couple squares of dark chocolate and thinking about a morning bike ride
