My journey as a long distance runner who started the sport later in life.
Day and Date: Saturday, July 5, 2014
Activity: time – 8:47 am, duration – 1:22:31, type – walking, intensity – leisurely (11:21 min/km pace)
Feelings: I was eager to get out for a walk because I have two days left in the week and two days worth of exercise left to do before I have to report my points to LWC. I also wanted to get it done before the summer sun started to get to burn intensity because I prefer not to wear sunscreen.
Nutrition: Today has just started and I have so far eaten a delicious homemade triple coconut waffle with butter and Canadian maple syrup. I have also had three coffees and I might have another, though I usually stop drinking it before noon. I am not sure what the rest of the day’s nutrition will bring, but I will try to earn full points if I can. I have 353 extra Calories to eat!
Body Assessment: It feels fine, and while I can appreciate that a fitness journal might be helpful from time to time or if one is just starting out on an exercise program, to me it seems a little goofy to keep writing this stuff down. I am glad it’s only for one week!
Gratitude: Yesterday I was quietly grateful about five very important people in my life. Today I am sure I will find it hard to come up with meaningful reasons to be grateful, but I will try my best not to be too shallow in my gratitude.
