Today we finally had a day without the threat of rain, snow or a blizzard!
I was able to get out and walk again. The weather was so nice I took off my jacket and was plenty warm in only short sleeves. It looks like I will only have one day of rain coming up in the next week! I am going to try and fit in four miles five times this week.
I started my walk today with the mindset of just getting in four miles no matter how long it took me. I unexpectedly ran the first 1/2 a mile and then alternated walking and running! I ended up running at least a mile total today. I also figured out that I run slower than I normally walk. Does anyone know if that is normal?
I find that on days when I workout and really burn calories that I am so much less tempted to cheat. I make sure that I am fueled up before my workout with carbs and that I have some protein or simple sugar (fruit) after. I normally just throw a string cheese in my bag and eat it on my drive home.
