And just like that...another week goes by...5 of 14...I am almost to the half way point in training!! I missed my walk on Monday because I was still feeling a bit sick...but the rest of the week was fantastic. I really worked hard on eating healthy food and as a result I know my workouts were much, much better. On Thursday morning, my trainer gave me a brand new strength training workout...it is perfect. Lots of Core. Lots of Arms. Lots of power. I felt so sore and so good. Later on Thursday night...I did three miles on the treadmill and then speed/form drills. Thursday's have always been my favorite day of the week...and it still is. Friday night I had some good quality time on the elliptical...I still miss it so much...but I am glad that I have figured out how to get at least one session in a week. I almost hate to write it, but I feel like a switch was flipped this week. I feel better in everything I am doing.
After looking at it on the kitchen table for a week...I also finally calibrated my new Nike + Sportband. I went to my high school track so that I could accurately measure the distance...I have not measured my time while doing laps in a long while. It was so easy using the clock on the my iPhone...crazy!! In my usual 4.0mph stride...I was doing laps at about 3:50...which after 12...was 45 minutes...and 3 miles. Data!!! Look who is all about the data?? If only tracking my blood sugars could be this easy. I have a feeling that if I could wear a cute pink bracelet that tracked my blood sugar level...my diabetes management would be completely transformed.
