2011/099: Bonus – wwwp5k Times Two, Again

What do you do when you’re up really early onΒ a Saturday? Go to the gym of course! πŸ˜‰
I usually skip the gym on Saturdays because we have other things planned, and it’s just difficult to find the time to go. Today, I wanted to make the time, but thought I would be able to go sometime this afternoon. But then I woke up at 4 am, had a cup of coffee and headed to the gym. I planned to only walk one 5k, but when I finished it was still pretty early and everyone would have still been asleep when I got home, so I decided to walk another 5k, leaving the gym around 7 am.
Today’s grand total is…
Distance walked: 10k (6.2 miles)
Time elapsed: 94 min, 23 sec.
Calories burned: 1721
Incline: between 13% and 18%
Speed: between 3.8 mph and 4.3 mph

  1. Okay you are starting to really make me feel like a slug this week with all your 5k’s! πŸ˜‰ I can’t even imagine being up as early as you are if I didn’t have to be – in fact, I was looking forward to not having to get up at any particular time this morning since I didn’t have to work and I finished my class last Saturday. (Hallelujah on that!)

    • LOL Sorry (sort of). Being up early is pretty normal for me, unfortunately. I usually wake up sometime between 4 and 5 am, but since we always do our grocery shopping on Saturday mornings, I skip the gym. I only went today because of wwwp5k week πŸ˜‰

  2. My two miles this morning seems like nothing compared to what you’re doing.

    I wish I could get up that early. It would be nice to have the extra hours. πŸ™‚

    You do look great and I love your skirt! I just bought a couple running skorts from LL Bean. Good for you for being so dedicated this week!

    • Thanks! This is a skort, too, and I actually found it at Target. I want to get another one or two soon, it’s too hot to wear long pants anymore.
