And my time wasn't bad either. Finished in 34:30 which is good for me right now. I am a mouth breather and it seems that when my heart rate gets too high, my breathing gets harder and I have to slow down somewhat to recover. My legs are willing; my lungs are not!
Sweaty selfie… don’t ya love them?
After I drank some water and stretched for a while… nope, didn’t use that Rumble Roller this time out… I started thinking about my plans for workouts for the remainder of the week. I have been concentrating my efforts on building a bit of muscle in my upper body. Summer is coming and I want my arms to have some shape when I bare them in sun dresses, sleeveless tops, and swimsuits. Yep, vanity is a big motivator for me. And I continue to work on my core strength as well. I need a strong core to play tennis and golf and to swim.
So this week I plan to use my 21 Day Fix DVDs and do Upper Fix (which includes a great core workout) a couple of times, and Dirty 30 (which is an all-over body workout). Of course I will walk as much as I can, too, and I may even get in a swim.
I am at a crossroads with my running right now. I am not really content with only getting out for one run a week. But I am in a bit of a time crunch with the extra work hours I have taken on. I want to enjoy the runs I do get in, and know that if I start getting up early to go for a run before my day starts, I will start to resent it very quickly… it won’t be fun at all, and that will defeat the purpose. So, for now, I am going to maintain the status quo. I am going to reassess all of these things at the end of the Summer.
