First 5K of 2010!

Garmin says:
45:05 min
425 cal

Followed by 2 sets of:
12 x Thrusters with 8 lb weight
12 x Lunges
12 x Lateral raises with 5 lb weight
20 x Bicep curl with 8 lb weights
12 x 8 lb leg/arm extension (I don't know what these are called but we did 'em in boot camp
10 x pushups

At the end I added another set of pushups and v-sit. And some Supermans for my back.

This puts me at Peters Indian Reserve 1, Peters Rd Exit #151 along the Trans Canada and 20 km away from Hope! Certainly not the fastest run, but it felt good to be out there again. And considering I haven't run since Dec. 27 (YIKES!) I'm good with it. My training schedule has me running 3 times during the week (time based runs, not distance) plus one long, slow run (distance) on Sundays. While I would like to run each day, I'll be happy with 2 runs during the week and my weekend run. I need to listen to my body and be able to adjust my training based on what it's telling me.

The rest of my day entails a shower (running makes me stinky!), knitting and dinner with S. I'm making a chicken tagine and couscous. I may have to nip out for a few things since my cupboard is as bare as Old Mother Hubbard's.

Have a great day!
