Got up early today with Annie and we started off on a brisk morning run! One of the things I like about the morning runs is that peoples sprinklers are on and it feels just wonderful to get a little misted every now and again!
A few days ago I went to a specialty running store and had them fit me for a pair of new shoes. I ended up with a new pair of Asics and it may possibly be the best money I have ever spent! Seriously, these things were like running on two little fluffy pillows! Here is a big Thank You to all of you guys who told me to get good running shoes in the comments because it was just glorious!
Since I had the added confidence of the new shoes I started very quickly. My first mile was done in 7 mins and 49 secs! Annie said I looked like I was shot out of a cannon! I slowed down a little because my heart rate was at 166BPM at the 1 mile mark and that is higher than the 148-155 aerobic rate I am trying to maintain. I ended up doing the 3.1 miles in 26:19. By far my best time yet. I wanted to keep going but I had to get showered and off to work!
This evening I got home around 7pm, got changed and did Shoulders and Arms. Once again I didn't kill myself because I was a sort of tired and my shoulder is feeling so good, but I still got an excellent workout in! Total calorie burn for the day was 850 -- not to bad!
My nutrition was a little off today. I still ate clean but since I was so busy I missed lunch. I had a power par in place of lunch. So, for dinner I stopped at Subway and got a double meat Turkey on whole wheat with american cheese, lettuce, and fat free honey mustard sauce. Probably about 800 calories but I was starving!
Tomorrow I have another full docket on the books! I should be home around 6pm (hopefully) and I am going to swim then. I also want to do a brick (bike + run) on Saturday but I need to go get a new tube my bike. I am going to try and do that at some point during the day but might have to wait until Saturday and push the Brick back to Sunday!
