Indy Mini Marathon Week 6 Day 6 (technically day 5 in the scheme of things…) — Long Run, 9 miles
Tomorrow I won’t be able to crank out 9 miles so I pushed the long run to today. It worked out about as beautifully as picture number 2, which features my leg with a cold burn on it post 4.7 miles with the puppy outside. Either way, 9 miles were accomplished and the rest is history. (The temperature was 38 when I got the cold burn…I had on yoga capris, could explain a thing or two — my defense is that I don’t own long running pants because *duh* Florida!)
First picture — obviously showing logging into myfitnesspal like whoa, and how many calories I estimated burning (I did the number before completing the workout at 10 this morning)
Second picture — legs with Vibrams and the shin’s cold burn. Lotion on it now, it isn’t as puffy.
Missing pictures — 4.7 miles with the puppy, 2.40 miles on the elliptical, 2 miles on the treadmill (I went indoors after the cold burn)
Third picture — the New York style bagel with egg that was consumed post workout
Fourth picture — the current position of my body with compression sleeves on and a dog to snuggle with. Position will remain this way as long as possible.
Fifth picture — Calories burned from the time I got up until syncing my new BodyMedia Core device (note: 5 A.M. grocery shopping at Wal-Mart and post-workout grocery shopping at Publix included)
Sixth picture — The difference between moderate exercise (brown) and vigorous exercise (yellow). Dunno how it calculates that but yellow was primarily my time on the elliptical.
Seventh picture — Slightly surprised that I’m at 84% efficiency for sleeping considering I went to bed at 11 and got up at 4:30, had 2 middle of the night interruptions (house alarm and having to go to the bathroom). I thought my sleeping was much worse than it actually documented. Could just be an anomaly.
Now excuse me, the dog and I are going to go enjoy some SG-1 and salad for lunch. He gets the carrots, I get everything else. Happy Friday all!
