Looking over this past week, my running plus fitness walking mileage isn't bad.
Sun: 1.0 walk
Mon: 1.5 walk + chiro appt with focus on IT band/knee issues
Tue: 4.8 run, 0.5 walk
Wed: 1.5 walk
Thu: 3.4 run, 1.0 walk
Fri: 3.5 run, 2.8 walk
Sat: 7.7 run, 0.5 walk
That adds up to 19.4 miles running plus 8.8 miles fitness walking for a grand total of 28.2 miles by feet. Woohoo!! Not a bad week. And of course, the best part is that my knee is behaving. I think walking, stretching, and having the chiro work on my IT band is helping. Plus running only on dirt and avoiding hills. It isn't a recipe for fast racing, but it does seem to be a combination that is keeping me running without pain.
Side note, sometimes I find running to be, at best, calorie neutral. Why? Well, here's an example. This morning my running partner and I ended up on the topic of baking while we were running. I ended up stopping at the store for some blueberries and the next thing I know I'm making over-sized blueberry muffins with a cinnamon crumb topping. I wouldn't doubt it if I undid the caloric benefit from running by consuming a few muffins. Oh well. What can I say? I like baking!
How was the past week for you? And are you baking anything yummy?
