First run of the year!
I was originally going to bike, since my right foot is still messed up. Wearing shoes (normally, I go around the house barefoot) felt more comfortable, though, so I went out in an old pair of Asics Gel Evolution 2's. The first pair that I ever got (I've had 4 total). I was slow. I don't know if it's the heat/humidity (even on New Year's day), or if I'm out of shape. Some heat, is my guess, but also probably some out of shapedness. I only ran once in the past week, up until today's run. It was a 15.5 that I eeked out on a bad foot (which is probably why this is taking a while to heal? although maybe moving/working it helps a little?), but still. My heart was working hard. I probably should've gone farther than I did (4.4 mi), but I was tired since it had been so long since my last run, and I didn't want to risk any further damage. Maybe I'll do a bike session later today, or schedule a 6.6 for tomorrow.
It felt good to move again, thouh. Strange that running is more comfortable than walking. Out in a sports bra even on Jan 1st... nice.
4.4 in 34:52, 7:55. Forgot to get the split.
Got in a 30 min biking session before making a special New Year's dinner for my family.
First, the biking session. I like my CHS subdivision's recumbent bike. It gives you a good range of motion and good, smooth resistance. I did 30 minutes, covering 244 Cal, 8.8 mi, with a HR going from 138 to 172bpm. It was a tough, good sweat session.
For dinner, I made a Tofurkey Roast, which comes with brown rice stuffing and gravy, to which you add sweet potatoes, onions, and carrots. I also made Broccoli as a side dish to add some color and provide the meal's Vitamin C. It was really good, especially with green tea.
