3rd Week of March

WEDNESDAY
  • My aim today was to exercise for an hour at least and I think I suceeded. It was exactly an hour between my stepping out of the house and getting back home. I'll break it down.
  • My walk to the park took 10 minutes. When I got there, I began my first lap round the park and was pleasantly surprised when my time at the end of the lap said 6:30 minutes. This was a good improvement from the 8-11 minute laps I used to run previously. I was so happy! I started off on my second lap. 2 minutes into the lap, my batteries died - again. I really should not be so careless but I must admit I was left without any music and finishing that lap was a very concious effort where I was aware of every step I jogged and not as effortless as the first lap. Incredibly, the 2nd lap was 5:50 minutes. But the will to run without any music just wasnt there anymore. (I think I've become spoilt) and so I switched to power walking instead.
  • Power walked round the park: 2 laps of 12 minutes each. Went round the external perimeters and so the distance was much more than the perimeter I ran which is normally the internal perimeter.
  • Then walked back home. So I could say I was active for an hour.

Yep there's a big difference between running with music and without, I have to check about my races for the summer as I hear some organisers do not allow mp3's.

Well done on the hour of activity
