Week 3 was a good week. I didn't quite hit my mileage goals, but I did: eat at home, have a lot of fun, feel really good, and I'm less than 5 pounds of my 'fighting weight' (total weight loss: 4 lbs)!
The Dirty Details:
Week 3 included my return to the indoor track and 400 meter repeats (to build speed). Unlike last year, I have a new tool in my training arsenal - my Garmin Foot Pod. I like it, but I think it's going to take a little tinkering to get the calibration right. At any rate, I was really pleased by my splits for the workout since they ranged between 8:16 and 8:52 pace. I definitely need to improve my mileage over the next few weeks.
Other Activities: 2
I had yoga on Tuesday night and I went to a sledding party on Saturday night. I love when a fun activity like sledding can double as a workout. Lots of dashing up the hill was involved. I was sore after that party! Fortunately the hosts planned ahead. A friend of theirs is a massage therapist and she was offering massages for $1/minute. She managed to loosen up my slightly strained left hamstring and she got all the knots out of my back and shoulders. That may be the best $30 I've spent in a while!
Eating: I mostly ate at home this week, which is a huge improvement. I indulged over the weekend, but not nearly as much as I have in the previous 2 weeks. Menu planning has definitely helped in this department.
Overall, I'm calling Week 3 a win!
