exercise: easy street run
10 minute brisk walk
40 minute run
10 minute cool-down walk
Once again I didn’t really have the time to head to Princes Park for my run but I really wanted to run outside today, so I settled on a local street run. Started with a 10 minute brisk walk and I couldn’t wait to start running as it was a little nippy. Around the 30 minute mark of running, my sciatica started to twinge a bit but I ignored it and finished my planned 40 minutes. It started to rain at the 38 minute mark and it was absolutely beautiful. I finished my 10 minute cool down and it was still sprinkling when I got home. Had a good stretch on the front verandah and then jumped into a hot shower 🙂 Really enjoyed running outside again and hope to run on the week-end, maybe down the Tan or at Albert Park Lake.
The school holidays start next week and I am really hoping to be able to keep doing my 3 runs a week. I usually have to give the gym a miss over holidays but I will be very happy if I can continue with my running. My 3 year old hasn’t been back to creche since “the incident” so I have had to rely on DH to babysit when he gets home from work in the morning. Not only do I feel guilty about that, it also means that I can’t exercise until later in the morning which I don’t like to do. I like to get my exercise out of the way early because it then leaves me plenty of time to do the things I should be doing around the house 🙄
P.S Andrew, my dream car is actually the new VW beetle 😆 I wanted one when I got my first car but my Dad would not let me get a one. He use to say, he could work on any car except that one so it became an unfulfilled dream for me 😦 I know I am probably too old for that kind of car now but they are so cute, especially the convertable ones! Maybe a more fitting car for my age group would be a BMW convertable 😆
