Good Morning All,
Today is an easy day. I walked to synagogue this morning for morning prayers and a breakfast discussion group and then walked home. A half mile round trip. Yesterday I walked in the desert for one mile with Judy and the pups. And on Monday I did a 5.6 mile run. Tomorrow I will run about 8 miles.
My wife bought me a new Garmin Forerunner 301 for my recent 61st birthday. What a wonderful gift! My old Garmin was on its last legs and the new gadget has its own built in heart rate monitor. This is good because my old Polar crapped out on me 6 months ago and I've missed having a HRM during training runs.
My brace is giving me fits. I wore it last week on a 4 miler and it bruised the ball of my foot. To compensate, I put an orthotic in my shoe and the tightness caused a blister on my ankle. I think I'd rather run without it, though it sure makes walking a lot easier and safer for me. Aging is sometimes a pain. Oh well. We all do what we have to do.
Weight training has been far too easy: Monday chest and back, Tuesday arms and shoulders, Wednesday legs with light weights and high reps. I don't think I'm doing quite enough, but then I'm used to heavy weights and low reps...so I guess I'll let it ride a bit before I change up the routine.
Now for those squats and lunges.
