A Weekend Off of Blogging

It was a busy weekend, hence the lack of blogging. Between the Christmas lights on the house, social time, Christmas tree, and poker, something had to give. Fortunately it was the blogging, and not the workout. My back is still bothering me, so instead of running, I limited my workouts to a brisk walk (15:00 pace). To tell you the truth, I’m okay with walking at this point. I walk in my neighborhood, where I also have to deal with some small hills. There is indeed huffing and puffing to be had:

  • Goal: 1780

  • Too few/(too many): (70)

For the week:

  • Total planned miles: 10.5
  • Actual miles: 12
  • Calorie deficit/(surplus): (77)  (Yikes!)

So it’s Monday. I’m supposed to do a couple of miles, but I am BUSHED! So, I’ll hit the treadmill tomorrow instead, and spend the evening getting some shuteye.

This week’s plan:

  • Monday: USRD
  • Tuesday: 2 miles
  • Wednesday: 3 miles
  • Thursday: Fly day
  • Friday: 2 miles
  • Saturday: 4.5 miles (!!!)
  • Sunday: 2 miles
  • Total: 13.5 miles

I don’t know if I’ll be running or walking, but the miles will get done!


  1. I'm starting to enjoy walking too. Do it quickly enough and you can almost imagine it's actually a 7-minute pace.

    Have a great week, Glenn.

  2. Way to go man. You are a busy guy indeed. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. Take care bud.
