Weekly workout report: Happy Spring!

This week I bumped up my total exercise time to more than 6 hours! The big difference is that the weather is nicer and I'm getting out for more walks. This week was not a high-intensity week.

I have my fitness evaluation on Wednesday. I'm both excited and nervous. In my experience, my body tends to have a higher percentage of fat, even when I'm fit, than other people. I got measured at two different times when I would consider myself very fit, and I was at 29% body fat. Right now I'm sure I'm higher. What I'm mostly looking for is a plan to get me ready for more intense workouts and training this summer. I'll report back after the eval.

It has been a while since I've been in the pool, so I think I need to go tomorrow. I don't think I need to bribe myself with Starbucks this time.

Ran 30 minutes with Jeannie -- faster than usual for me. Calves were sore so I went for a 20 minute walk in the evening to stretch them out.

Took it easy today: walked to work and back, about 1 hour. Then took another hour-long walk in the park later. Not bad for a rest day.
