You know you’ve had a busy morning when you’re already at 12,291 steps at 10 am.
2.5 mile walk with the babe at Lake Nokomis followed by a 1.35 mile run. I was originally planning on doing 3-4 miles, but I’m feeling a little sore today so I kept it conservative. Day 22 is in the books.
How did my hubby celebrate his first Father’s Day? By taking Little Mister and I for a 2 mile walk, cooking dinner on the grill and rocking the baby to sleep so I could run 5.2 miles. I enjoyed the day, I hope he did too.
I just realized that my fitbit hasn’t recorded any of my activity for the last four hours!!! F!
Guess I better go make up those missed steps :(
So Pump threw down the gauntlet this morning and passed me up on the fitbit leader board. I am not one to be intimidated by 10 mile running, rapid foot turn over speed demons, so I knew I had to get motivated and get my step count back up.
I went to the Stone Arch Bridge Art and Music Festival this afternoon with the fam. It was hot, humid and very sticky, but we walked about 2 miles and salivated over all the terrible fair-style foods. My resolve was strong today and I did not give in to temptation.
After dinner I ran 2.54 miles on the dreadmill. That was just enough to squeak past Pump in the standings. It may be a very short lived victory, but at least temporarily I am on top ;) What ever it takes to stay motivated, right?
A quick 1.14 on the mill to keep the streak alive. I have a mosquito bite on the top of my foot. I could not wait to take my shoes off so I could scratch it!
Ahh sweet relief.
Dear Neighbor Lady,
Yesterday was the first time I ever spoke to you. In what world do you think it’s ok to wander into someone’s backyard uninvited, proceed to give unsolicited advice to complete strangers, all the while smoking a cigarette inches from my infant son. You suck! You’re lucky I didn’t drop kick you in the head! You stay on your side of the fence and I’ll stay on mine.
Your New Nemesis
I haven’t updated in a few days, but the streak continues. I ran 2.73 miles on ye olde treadmill this evening to close out day 18. I know this is going to kill my metal head street cred, but I really like running to Ke$ha (I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit). Sometimes terrible pop music can really keep you going when you’re bored.
My left hamstring has been a little sketchy the past 2 days, so I spent some time becoming reacquainted with my foam roller. He’s such a bastard, but it hurts so good.
I raked and shoveled about 100lbs of rock in the yard today so I’m going to count that as my core/cross training workout. I forgot how sweat inducing time working in the yard can be.
I also seem to be averaging around 20,000 steps per day with the fitbit. I knew I walked a lot because of my job, I just had no idea how much. It’s been eye opening!
