Right after I posted last night I accepted an invite to play poker so I didn’t get my exercise in yesterday. I didn’t beat myself up though like I use to though. Instead I made myself a deal that I would run today instead of walking. I knew I’d have to take it slow since I also had my normal run Sunday to do. Past history also suggests running multiple days in a row is not good for my knees as well.
So today I tried to run slow and keep it at 30 minutes max. I must say I hate running slow. I would rather just go out and run the distance and get it over with. However I kept with the plan and ran roughly 12.5 min/miles. I also ran only 30 minutes to the second. Afterwards I just walked around the bigger block for 12 minutes. I usually would do 30 minutes to get my 1HR of exercise in for the day but I have another poker game tonight and I’m going to walk there and back. That should give me another hour of exercise.
Tomorrow’s plan calls for only a 3 mile run but I think I’ll bump it to 4 miles depending on how I feel after today’s run.
REMEMBER to turn your clocks ahead an hour before bed 🙂
