Enjoy the Journey

Sunday - November 17

Run
  • 36m
  • 3.00 miles
  • 12m /Mi

Treadmill run at the Y. Did a mile at 11:30, walked 2 minutes, then a mile at 10:45, walked 2 minutes. Another at 10:45, but took a walk break halfway through.

Way too windy this morning to run outside, so drove into town and ran on the dreadmill at the Y. When I left, you could see the line of storms rolling through the area. The wind was crazy and my SUV was rocking violently on the road. I was so glad that my DD happened to be out at our house doing laundry, where we have a basement.

My heart goes out to the people in Washington and Pekin, Illinois, who lost their homes in the tornado this afternoon. The images of the devastation are surreal.

Taking off work a little early to run a couple of errands. Should finish up in time to get a run in before it gets too dark. We did get a bit of snow last night although most of it melted quickly. Now it's just cold slush.

Sport
  • HIIT
  • 48m

Another HIIT workout from BodyRockTV --- 30 sec jogging in place, 30 sec various strength moves.

Feeling like a little old lady who complains about her aches and pains --- my neck and back are still very tight. Feels fine when I am moving and that seems to help, but sitting is problematic. Another day of Aleve, I suppose.

Happy Veterans Day to all of BT!!! Our office is open today and it's going to be busy too. Bleh...

6 mile run on tap for the evening, assuming the predicted rain and snow mix holds off. If that hits, maybe a drainer ride. Sigh, hello winter.
