Fitness Friday

It's that time again...Fitness Friday!

I started my morning with a run. I was hoping for another full mile like Wednesday. I MADE IT! I'm not going to lie, I started to feel a little tightness & grinding around the fibular head (from my ITBS) around .8, but I was only .2 away from a I pushed myself (maybe a no-no, but I just had to get a mile). My intentions were to walk about half a mile then try to start back up. During my walking, I saw one of my running buddies..."Coach Ruthie", so she ran about .45 with me. Then I had to stop once again. I tried once more to run, but only made I knew I was done then!

Here's a link to my lovely Garmin running: A mile & then some... by nikerunner75 at Garmin Connect - Details

After my run, I went for a 30 minute bike ride. It was a little cooler this morning, so the breeze was nice. I enjoy riding around the pond to see the ducks & geese. Sometimes I even have to stop the bike to let them cross the road. They love to quack, honk, & hiss at me. I was looking for one particular white one (not sure if it's a duck or goose) my last bike ride, I noticed it had something dangling from its was fishing line! Then I noticed there was a hook stuck in its bill!  That made me sad. :( Anybody know of an easy way to catch one? I so badly want to get that hook out for him/her!

Once I returned from my bike ride, I hit the shower, then went to the gym for a workout. Got in a good arm & leg workout! Not many people there, so once again I didn't have to fight for equipment...sometimes it pays to be a teacher & be off during the Summer!

Shortly, I'll hit the pool for some aqua jogging & laps. Let me just say, I tried some of those water workouts yesterday & they kicked my butt! Would you believe I was actually sweating in the pool?

Oh, I almost forgot...I just received some Power Ice that I won earlier in the week! Can't wait to try it. Also, I found out last night that I won a sample of EnergyBits! Maybe I need to go buy a lottery ticket.

What did you do for Fitness Friday?


  1. Great job on your run! Love the picture at the bottom! :)

    1. Thanks! I'm slowly working my way back! Baby steps. I can't knock the progress.
