5.16 KM Speed Walk (1.5 KM) + Short Run (3.66KM) + Weight Training

My blister finally healed over completely and now was the time when I could start training again. It’s been about 4 months since my last run, but for the last 2 weeks, I have been speed walking Spike around the park to get ready to run (it’s about 1.5km). It’s fast enough to make me sweat and wear my running gear. Today I started with some weight training. I did about 120 per arm, 100 sit-ups, and then took Spike out for a long walk, at least for him.

Once I put on my running gear to walk Spike, I knew that I would put in a run, even though I started all of this at around 10:40PM. It was 11:30PM by the time I started getting ready to run. Spike was taking a long time, and I rushed him home, took a water bottle, dropped off my long-sleeved top, and ran out again. It felt quite good, but I wanted  to be sure that I didn’t overdo it. My goal was about 3km for my first time out and I’m satisfied with my run. It wasn’t a fast pace, although at the end, I did sprint. The data is somewhat skewed because I took the Garmin with me on my speed walk with Spike. I’ll have to remember to press the lap button so that I can compare my running time. Max heart rate was 177 bpm with an average of 140 bpm. Best pace was 2:24min/km, while my average was 8:57 min/km (which includes the walk data).

All that I need to do is to maintain a decent amount of training and I’ll drop a lot of weight. This is what I’ve done before.
