Even though I haven’t been posting about it, I have been working out lately. On Sunday I took my bike out to Reach 11. Some maintenance was recently done on the trails making them cleaner and smoother, so I was able to do some exploring rather than following my usual out and back route. On Monday I didn’t feel like going out so I played Wii Fit for an hour instead. I really love the step aerobics in Wii Fit. It’s both fun and a good workout. If they made a game just based around the step aerobics, I’d totally buy it.
Yesterday we had a potluck lunch at work and I definitely overindulged with dessert. I had a piece of vanilla cake with strawberry filling, a slice of coconut pie, AND a slice of pumpkin pie. Luckily there was a free 5k fun run at Road Runner Sports last night to help me burn off the calories. I was the only walker, but everyone there was very supportive and I managed to come in not too far behind the last person who was running with her dog. According to my Garmin, I had an average 13:10 pace and the distance was just under 3 miles. The pace was very comfortable and I felt like I could have kept going for at least another mile. I’m getting really good at this whole speed-walking thing!
