The semester is getting very busy these days, and I am actually posting this from work the day after my workout, which I guess has been typical lately. It's okay, though. If I'm not using how busy I am NOW as an excuse to not go to the gym, I don't foresee anything that could keep me away in the future, barring major injuries.
I'm thinking about implementing a "diet." There's a reason that word has four letters, but the diet I'm considering isn't really a diet. I'm cutting out bad stuff one thing at a time. I'm going to start with high fructose corn syrup. Then I'm going to work towards harder stuff like snacking healthier, eating more frequent small meals, stuff like that. Whatever I do, it will be very LOOSELY regimented. Because my body really rebels when it hears dirty words like "diet." I swear, I could put on ten pounds by just chanting that word to myself a few times per day.
Back to running news. I found out about a nice place to go running that I may try out when the weather decides to be nice to us. It's April and snowing still here in Utah. Well, ptth to that.
Oh, and speaking of April, I listened to General Conference on the treadmill. Who knew that calm voices saying inspiring things could have been better for physical activity than Black Eyed Peas and other fast-paced music? It gave me something to focus on that wasn't my aching body or the news. That's it, I think.
Oh yeah... Well, I know I say this every entry, but I'm still so very proud of me for continuing with the program. Now, that's all.
My workout was:
Week 4, Day 2
2.16 miles in 32 minutes, 2.0% incline
Average Mile Pace: 14:55
