Yesterday I woke up a little bit late and had to rush out the door to get to the site of the Tri-Yoga 5K that I'd impulsively signed up for the previous week. I was determined to do as much running as I could manage and I'd even gone to a short running clinic for newbies the day before.
Unfortunately, after I was already on the road I realized I'd forgotten to put on my Nike+ Fuelband that tracks all my movement. Aaagh! I was already running late so there was no way I could turn around and get it. So I wouldn't get any "credit" for my 5K. Darn it.
I didn't run as much as I'd hoped to, but my 5K time was the best I've managed in many years. I came in 150th out of 165, but I was incredibly pleased at how it had gone and I feel very optimistic about my other upcoming 5Ks.
Once the race was over, I did a bit of yoga and headed home. Toby had been very disappointed to watch me put on my running shoes and leave without him so once he greeted me I thought, "Why not take the dog on our usual 3.4 mile route?"
I'd be lying if I tried to tell you that I wasn't also thinking about making up those Fuel Points. Yesterday was Day 30 and I'd hit my goal every single day since I started!
It was still quite early and I knew Toby would appreciate the exercise, especially because he'd been cheated out of his walk the previous day due to my dad's garage sale.
So that's how I ended up covering 6.5 miles of ground on foot in a single morning.
I thought I'd be really tired after all that, but instead I felt energized. I waited for my husband to get up and we went out for an incredibly hearty breakfast. After that, I went to do a volunteer project, attended my 7-year-old nephew's baseball game, and took my sister's 5 o'clock yoga class, which was just what I needed for my stiff leg muscles.
After dinner at my sister's house, I came home, cleaned the cat boxes (ick), and went to bed at 9:00 p.m.
I didn't get in a walk this morning due to rain, so I'm trying to decide between using our treadmill at work or hoping it clears up so I can walk tonight after work. Either way, I have to get those points!
