You know what is really annoying me lately? The fact that I have to make sure I know, or remember the street names, and locations etc for where I am running. I cant run at night or when it is dark (which is pretty much when I am home now that summer has ended), and I cant access my treadmill at the moment due to our shed being full of my late father in law’s belongings. I’m just sick and tired of having to be careful and not being safe. I don’t even live or work in bad neighborhoods.
I am hearing about too many women being followed by cars, or followed and approached by other men posing as runners, or even just strangers jumping out of bushes. I can’t vary my route, and I cant really change my running times too much due to work. Its frustrating the hell out of me at the moment.
I lost weight last week! Not a lot, but enough to change the numbers a bit!
This week I am being a little lazy with lunches at work. I’m getting a hot/cooked half chicken, microwaving a huge bowl of frozen veggies, and putting some gravy on it. Tonight we are having lasagna for dinner – I plan to have a small portion, and fill the rest of the plate up with veggies… But then again, it is delicious lasagna… Must. Stay. Strong. I’m so sick of salad greens, and now that summer is over I am enjoying hot food so much more.
I really am loving running so much right now – Its something I really look forward to. I’m increasing my frequency to mon/tues – thurs/fri – and possibly a HIIT class on Wednesdays. My knees and shins are not liking it at all, so I really need to step up with building my supporting muscles. Ugh.
I really really really want a Garmin. My polar watch/HR monitor is great, but it is chewing through the batteries, so I think it might be about to kick the bucket. Such a shame. I bought it second hand off eBay for $15 when I was on maternity leave and had no money. I actually had to save up for it. My biggest concern is the accuracy of the HR monitor being in the wrist of the Garmin that I can afford, but it would be nice to not have to wear a chest strap.
Anywho, that is all the rambling for this week I think…
