BOWC

Sunny Saturday

Another gorgeous day in Portland! A friend and I walked 2.5 miles around our neighborhood - gossiping about neighbors, looking at people's yards, and just generally enjoying some time out doors!

Day 18

Individual run for the Jackrabbit class today. I went back to Central Park this weekend, but I ran in the opposite direction from last weekend. The hills were a little bit easier, but still more hills that along the West Side highway.

It's not so much the uphill that's the problem, though it does make me breathe heavily, I'm more wary of the downhill for fear of straining my legs.

Beautiful day!

Thursday was a day off for me - I was traveling locally for work, and didn't have time to workout.

Day 17: Becoming a standard

Fridays are starting to be the "take a 40 minute walk with friend in the office" day. I think I like it. Although with all this running sometimes I just want to break into a run and arrive at the office sweaty, and in under 25 minutes. I think the rest is good for me though. Sometimes it is important to have an activity that forces you to go slow.

Day 17

Yoga class today. It was great. Everytime I take a yoga class I remember how much I love taking yoga and I need to find a regular class that I can go to.

Tomorrow it's time for an individual run.

Day 16: Metaphor free

I'm too distracted by everything going on right now to do much more than a list of yesterday's workout:

Elliptical warm up [10 minutes]
Stretching [10 minutes]
Knee strengthening exercises [courtesy of runnersworld. comm]
Shoulder warm up / strengthening exercises [courtesy of the trainers at PLU]
Mile swim

Day 16

Running class again tonight--almost done with week three of that. We did something a little different tonight since it was the first night we ran for longer intervals than we walked. Our instructor, Dave, called them "out and backs," but they were essentially speed training.

Day 15: Just like that

Okay.

Okay.

I get it. I mean, I get how it's supposed to work. You exercise. You push yourself. You exercise and push yourself on a regular basis, and your physical fitness improves.

Day 15

HALF WAY!!

I went to the gym after work today and had a great workout:

33 mins on the elliptical
15 mins on the wave rollerblading machine
20 mins of weights
10 mins of stretching

I went with a friend from work--it's always fun to go with someone new.

Tomorrow running and if I can get my lazy bum out of bed...pilates in the morning.
