Week two of bachelorette livin’ is here 🙂
Zach really couldn’t have picked a better week to be out of town this time — being in the midst of the taper-crazies :).
He’s a smart boy, that guy.
All joking aside, for the first time in all my training cycles — I have embraced the taper. This was a tough training cycle, but I logged plenty of good miles, I feel mentally prepared, and I’m starting to get excited. I’m fairly content to walk it out, practice some yogis, and keep the runs shorts and easy until Sunday.
Lord knows with my luck lately I’d pay for it if I didn’t! ;).
An Afternoon Walk
On my “workout schedule” included walking 3 miles today. So I took my lunch period and got 2 miles in while it was still nice out.
And boy was it nice
I walked around the park near my office building and enjoyed the last bit of leaves on the ground that I think Colorado is getting this season. I may or may not have kicked and skipped through some leave piles for old times sake. . . maybe.
I loved getting some fresh air and the easy walk definitely loosened up my legs quite a bit.
By the time I got home, I walked the final mile with Gusman around our neighborhood, for a total of about 3.2 miles of intentional walking today.
With weather like this, it’s really not hard to talk myself into getting out in the middle of the day or after a long day at work. It’s just about perfect for it. AND we have to soak up the last bit of evening sun we have before the time change, right?!
The party of last week continues on into tonight with a movie and easy dinner.
Turkey sandwich on a toasted “energy bar” loaf of bread with cheese, raspberry spread and greens.
And of course, my favorite chex mix made it’s way back into my grocery cart for the week.
I really can’t help it — I’m carbo loading, ok?
And now, it’s time to enjoy dinner and sit down with my chick flick of the evening
Have a great Monday night, all 🙂
Question of the Day: Do you consider an intentional walk a workout?
Right now, you betcha!
