Exercising my demons

Friday - November 28

Spent most of the morning cleaning up after yesterday's events, then goofed off the rest of the day.  I had planned on doing spinning class in the morning, but it was cancelled.  Went to bed early to catch up on rest.

Run
  • 29m 42s
  • 3.11 miles

5k PR!

7:30am - To get the day off on the wrong foot (no pun intended) I overslept and missed the 5k I signed up for.  I'll go out in a little while and run, but I'm still pissed at myself.

10:00am - Ok, now I feel a little better after running my fastest 5k ever.  I was a bit overdressed, but along the way I was able to adjust so it was okay.  At the 2 mile mark I realized that I could break my previous 5k PR (32:07) and maybe go sub-30:00 as well, so I pushed myself pretty hard the last 1.1 miles.

8:30am - Plan for the day - work as long as I need to (until the office starts clearing out), then go to the gym for running and/or swimming.  A friend of mine invited me to a "pre-Thanksgiving" dinner tonight that she does every year with all of her single friends, should be fun.

5:00pm - Left the office just before 2:00, hit the gym for a run and a swim before heading home.  Given that I hadn't swam in over two months, I felt pretty good in the pool.  In fact, I was shocked that I was sub-2:00 per 100 yards.

Tuesday - November 25

8:00am - I had planned on getting into town early to swim this morning (honest, I had the bag packed and everything) but I overslept.  :(  I would try to do it tonight but I'm having dinner with my kids and my STBX, then her and I are working some more on our divorce agreement.  :(  What fun!

8:00am - Plan for the day:

  • 9:00am - Meeting with health coach at work
  • 5:00pm - Dinner
  • 6:00pm - Pick up number packet for race on Thursday
  • 7:00pm - Running and strength training

10:30am - My meeting with the health coach was generally uneventful, we discussed how my running and strength training are (or aren't going), and how/when to start working on my diet and weight again.  A few weeks ago she mentioned to me that she's single and doesn't have a boyfriend, so we spent part of the time talking about online dating, finding people who are active like we are, etc.  It was an interesting conversation, as I would go out with her in a heartbeat if we didn't already have a coaching relationship.  Hmm, maybe I don't need a health coach after all...   :)

8:00pm - Dinner and picking up my number went pretty quick, so I was able to get to the gym by 6:00 and I was home by 8:00.

Sunday - November 23

Run
  • 1h 14m 33s
  • 7.00 miles
  • 10m 39s /Mi

24F, 15F wind chill

11:00am - My Mom offered to watch the girls for a while so I could get my run in (thanks, Mom) so I ventured out into the cold looking and feeling like the Michelin Man.  I started off too fast because I was focusing on warming up and not watching my pace, but overall I felt pretty good and averaged 20 seconds per mile faster than my 1/2 marathon pace.  Not too bad considering that it was my first long run since the race.

6:00pm - In the afternoon the girls and I were invited to a party at a friend's house to watch the Patriots-Dolphins game.  It felt a bit weird because it was all married couples plus me, the soon-to-be-single guy.  At least there were a bunch of other kids, so my girls had a lot of fun.  And the Pats won!

Saturday - November 22

My kids arrived in the morning, and we spent part of the day doing errands and getting stuff for Thanksgiving.  In the afternoon we finished up a gingerbread house that we were working on, then after dinner we had "movie night".  I made up some popcorn and we sat on the couch and watched a Dora the Explorer movie that the girls had picked out at Blockbuster.
