It was just too cold for me to run outside yesterday so off I went to Anytime Fitness to get in my run. My job affords me the opportunity to break in the middle of the day so I usually don’t have any issues getting a treadmill.
I programmed my app to give me cues to run 8 min, walk 2 min but once I got started I kind of went with whatever felt good. I set the run speed at 5.2 and walk at 3.9. Once I hit the 3 mile mark I wanted to be sure I would finish 4 miles within the 50 mins I had programmed in the app so I had to speed up the last couple of run segments to 5.4…wow, I could feel the difference! But I finished 4 miles in the time I had allotted so I’m happy 😀
I started my Vivofit at the beginning of the workout but totally forgot to stop it when I got off the treadmill – duh! – so I had to manually adjust it. According to the treadmill display I hit 4 miles with 12 seconds to spare…sounds good to me!
Thursday is my next planned run and it’s going to be about the same temperature…AF, here I come!
I started a new quilt last night, it’s called Sunny Skies and I found it in Block magazine published by Missouri Quilt Co in their Holiday 2015 edition.
I pulled out all my scrap fabrics in yellow and blue colorways and began making 4-patches. Once I’m done with those I’ll have to get some solid fabric to make the chevrons in the background. I’m not sure how big the quilt will be – I guess it will depend on how many 4-patches I can make.
