Well, I've been out running a couple of times now with the puppy, and in the middle of my run I think about my breathing. And my report is that when I'm running, I do not think about my breathing at all. What I mean is that it is so natural and effortless that I would argue that I hadn't even been breathing. Kinda like (and yet the opposite of) the feeling you get sometimes when you're swimming under water a lot and you're so comfortable under there that it doesn't feel like you're holding your breath? Anyhow - there you go. My breathing is the one thing when I'm running that does not cause me any discomfort (or thought apparently) at all, ever.
I just got a new iPod nano (purple) from Air miles yesterday and took it out for it's first run today. I have to get a proper holder for it, but I made do with my old one, which is from a different generation of nano. My puppy & I ran almost 4.5k and my pace down a bit - or is it up? I ran a bit faster anyhow, whichever it is, and my pace was 7'39/km. Not bad considering I had to stop twice for dog business. I hate running with poop - but what are you going to do??
I did the Workout Wednesday routine for the challenge. I liked it so much I'm going to add it to my regular rotation. Awesome job making it up Amy!!
So, yesterday I did my run with Indiana (almost 3.5k) but husband wanted to go up to the Club, so I went with him and did 30 minutes on the spin bike & 23 minutes of hill programs on the treadmill. I'd say I only put in a moderate effort, since I honestly didn't feel like going up at all!
Today I did my Fitness magazine program and the routine for the challenge. That took a total of 45 minutes. Then I ran with pup. I'd list the particulars, but I have to run - we are off to watch the Stampeders play the Alouettes. Thank goodness we have box seats - cause it looks like rain!!
Have a healthy day bloggers!!
