Today, I managed to go to the gym, go to work, back over to the gym, then back home - without starting up my SUV once.
It's been far too long since I had my 'green day' - or getting around the entire day using just my Trek road bike. But with gas prices going nowhere but up and after three straight days of eating unhealthy, I figured today would be a good a day as any to burn some calories as I commuted (although I should be doing it far more frequently).
Also at the gym tonight, I met up with my running partner Natalie again. We covered exactly 7.15 miles at an average pace of 8:53 min/mi through some nearby neighborhoods. The first couple of miles, my right shin was still bothering me. Too many miles? Time for new shoes? Can't figure it out.
Thankfully, it felt a little better as the miles clicked off and by miles 6 and 7, I was running right around 8:30 min/mi pace. Nothing spectacular, but given my feeble attempt at a tempo run the previous night, I'll take it.
Actually cooked dinner tonight for a change. Now trying to avoid the temptation to go out tonight since I have an early work day tomorrow followed by my 'little brother's' birthday party at Mulligan's. Peace.
