For the last several months I have not been getting nearly enough exercise. I just didn’t have enough energy to do much. I was diagnosed as anemic in January and have adjusted my stomach meds and am taking iron supplements to address that issue. I finally feel like I can try to get back into some kind of routine to start working back to shape to walk in the 3-Day in October. I am going back to tracking my steps with my fitbit and using myfitnesspal to track calories so that I can try to lose weight and get in better shape at the same time. I started out today with half an hour on the treadmill and hope to work up to an hour within a week or two.
Between work and kids end of school year activities I have not had much time to do as much training as I want to get in. I did take some time today to go out and stretch it a bit. I probably should have worked up to it again but it was a nice day and I had time so I went out and did 13 miles today. I am sure I will be feeling it tomorrow. I got had intended to hit the road at 6:30 like I would if I was walking on event but I took a little longer to get organized and ended up leaving about 7:00. The weather was perfect to start but got a little warm as I got close to the end of my walk. 70 is a very comfortable temp but 85 is getting a little warm. I had a little cloud cover so the sun was not bad either. I am going to try and get in a couple walks a week now until the 3-Day the weekend after Labor Day.
