I spent the next 2 hours catching up on housework and getting everything ready so that I can start cooking dinner as soon as I get back from my run. This afternoon I had a 5 mile easy run to do so I thought I would bring my lovely dog Tigger with me. I have mentioned this before but Tigger does not like men taking him for walks. When we got Tigger he was pup and he has always been this way. Tigger would get very exited but when he gets 10 feet or so from the front door he then refuses to budge and sits down. If I try to give him a gentle tug then he would lay down, If I try again he would lay on his back with his feet in the air. This can be embarrassing and frustrating when you want to go for a run. Most of the time I leave it to the girls to walk him as it’s easier. Well today was a good day as he did actually let me take him for a run, Tigger tried to sit down once but changed his mind.
Thursday 17th January 2019 I did not get to update my blog on Tuesday or Wednesday as I just ran out of time so my apologies if todays is a bit long. Tuesday I had gained 1 lb and Wednesday no change but this today I had dropped 2.2 lbs which is much better. Tuesday was strength exercise day. I did the same as Friday but slightly heavier weights, My daughter also done the workout with me which made it fun. I think increasing the weight slightly was the answer – I felt really good when I finished. Wednesday was my 40 Minute tempo run – made up of 4 minutes warm-up, 15 minute steady run, 3 minute easy run, 15 minute steady run and finishing with a 3 minute easy run. 5.05 mi 7:56 /mi 40m 3s Thursday afternoon was really busy, I had my usual oats, strawberries and banana breakfast was lovely.
