Exercise Summary 04/01 - 04/07
Last week was a better workout week with an unexpected hiccup at the end.
Monday - I walked 1.2 miles at lunch time. Then rode 8+ miles when I got home from work. It was all I could manage in the time I had and I don't feel like my bike is as smooth as before I changed the tire. I need to see if the wheel needs better adjustment.
Tuesday - 3.4 miles walking at lunch time. It was very humid.
Wednesday - 3.15 in 46 minutes. I did mostly walking but with a little bit of running.
Thursday - 3.15 in 1:01. Lovely lunchtime walk.
Saturday - Trail hike/run. 4.5 miles in 1:25. Mostly hiking with a bit of running thrown in. Basically 1 minute run for every 2 minutes hiked when I was doing that. Took some time with just walking in the middle when ChocolateWife called to say that ChocolateDaughter fell and hurt her arm.
I planned the day off on Friday after donating a triple of platelets on Thursday. I'm happy to be able to donate triples the last two visits but it takes longer and I need to account for the extra time. Technically I could workout on the day after but I was ready for a day off anyway.
Sunday I missed after being up part of the night and then the entire family going to the ER with CD who has a broken radius. She got it splinted and we're waiting for a follow up with an orthopedist to get a cast.
My weight is unchanged but I'm optimistic nonetheless. Even without my weight dropping I actually feel slightly more comfortable in my pants so that's always a good thing. I'm tracking my food in Noom and my calories burned and trying to do little things that burn calories. I'm probably nearing the point that I need to change my work schedule and either run/walk in the morning before work or the evenings because it will be too hot and sweaty to go at lunch (even with a shower). Right now I'm mostly doing my lunch time as walks so I don't have to shower but if I want to intersperse any running, I need to bring my pack and shower.
