|It's a little icy in my neck of the woods.|
So anywhoo, I went for run a with Jane tonight. Outdoors. Time has been tight today and I knew I couldn't do a treadmill run AND take Jane on her daily much needed walk, so I decided to test my balancing skills and see if I could stay upright on a run.
It went pretty well for the most part but I have to say, every muscle in my body was on red alert trying to maintain my vertical position. To paraphrase Tina Fey, I had to manually unclench my butt cheeks when I was done, the muscles were so tightly contracted. So I might be a little sore tomorrow. But this should be great for my core, right? On another note, I have to say the trail shoes are a wonder. I don't think I'll ever go back to the running shoes/Yak Trax combo for winter running.
So Jane got her outdoor time, and I got my run in so it was a win for both of us! But damn, it was slow going. Check out my splits: pretty slow, but we got 'er done!
Let's see how I'm doing on my goals on day 4:
Move for 30 minutes each day - yep!
Run at least one mile per day - yep yep!
Eating clean? Well, it's been hit and miss. Do I have to own that I had McDonald's chicken nuggets for dinner tonight? And fries? Yeah, I suppose I do. Such a guilty pleasure. I shouldn't love them. But I do.
I did eat clean for lunch and breakfast, though. Really! Honest!! I knew when I set that goal for myself it was going to be tough, but holy crap, I totally underestimated how much I love to eat junk. That goal is going to be SO hard for me...... Wish me luck, folks!
Ever bite off more than you can chew, literally or figuratively?
