Weight Watchers has been plugging the Walk It Challenge, which is a 6 week program to encourage folks to get moving and walk a 5k. I didn't participate in their training program since I can easily walk that far already, but I did go with my WW leader and a couple other ladies from my meeting on a walk around the neighborhood to complete the 5k. We get a charm for our keychains for stepping up to the challenge...hopefully we'll get those next week so I can post a picture. We kept a pretty decent pace considering we stopped to chat and had to wait for cars to pass to cross the street and whatnot.
Saturday, 5/21/11 - walked ~3 miles in ~53:00
On Sunday I did some yardwork - trimming bushes with the electric hedgetrimmer and some manual clippers. I earned a couple activity points. I also apparently got a mad workout on my forearms because they are sore today! That powertool is heavy!
I debated going to Zumba, but I was wiped from being out in the sun working. Ended up going to a late lunch with the parents and didn't get back home until after class start time, anyway. Hopefully next week!
Today I finally got myself back on the treadmill. I decided to restart my 10k training program, since I haven't run for distance in about 3 weeks.
Monday, 5/23/11 - PALA 10k plan, Day 1 - 1.97 miles in 30:00 (15:15 pace) - 5 min warmup/cooldown walks @ 3.4mph, 20 min jog @ 4.2
It wasn't too bad...really sweaty as usual, but not abnormally out of breath. I could tell my legs aren't used to running for more than a few minutes at a time right now, but I got through it fine.
I'm starting to think about my loose skin, and how I need to be filling it back out with toned muscle. These batwings need to diminish ASAP - not cute. I hope it's not *too* unsightly when I get to the end of all this. On the bright side, when I have babies I shouldn't get any extra stretch marks because I have them all over already! Ha.
