First 2 post “Body for Life” workouts done

More details to come, but I did my first strength training workout since I wrapped up “Body for Life” and it felt really good to change things up. It was a total body workout, which I was dreading, but it turned out to be refreshing to change up the routine. I finished with plenty of energy, which is a very good thing.

I did my first out door run this morning, at the very early hour of 4:50am. It was a little creepy being outside at that hour, but it was so peaceful. I felt better after I came across another guy out running, it made me feel better about m own sanity. He was running with headphones, which would make me feel very unsafe in the middle of the day, so there’s noway I’d be running to the tunes at 5am.

Details of the run to come, but I’ll say it was a little over 2 miles, it took me a little over 17 minutes and was pretty hilly. I’m not so happy about the pace, but I’ll deal. I’m sure the hills and the fact that I haven’t run outside in so long contributed to missing my 8 minute per mile pace I was hoping for.
