Today made it four days to the race and my designated workout was a ‘long’ run. My goal was 4km around the neighbourhood and wearing the Mizuno Wave Creation 12 running shoes. The air was crisp so I wore a hoodie and promised myself to take it easy. My route was full of distractions because it was Halloween. There was a lot of traffic, driveway parties, playful dogs and costumed folks of all sizes. The activity seemed to hit critical mass as I neared home, so I finished the last half kilometre on the treadmill. The shoes worked quite well and may be ready for Sunday with a bit more pounding on the asphalt. Also, I created a playlist for the 5k and it’s really good. The beats are perfect for my pace and have just the right kind of venom to get me going. I love it so much!
Afterwards, I completed twenty-two walking lunges as part of Holly Perkins’ Thirty Days of Lunges. I didn’t use any dumbbells to spare my lower body. The last piece of activity was Exercise TV’s Sports Cool Down video and boy did I need it. I even included a few stretches from other workouts for my glutes and hamstrings. There was great, great temptation to throw in a Fitsugar Abs workout but I’ll save it for tomorrow. This taking it easy stuff is actually pretty hard. This was My Fitness Revolution: Day 369. No retreat, no surrender and no excuses!
