  • Thursday --  Three walks.  38 minutes of Daily Burn. 23,241 Steps | 12.99 Miles 

Saturday I managed to get home before the sun set (yay for longer days) so I took the dogs for another walk. Instead of my usual super fast walk though, I jogged for most of that mile and a half, and finished in roughly 15 minutes. Even a year ago, I couldn't have made it more than a block before I'd have to stop.

Wednesday was my first 5K for April. Usual 3.17 mile route in roughly 38 minutes.

I've also went down a few more pounds in the last week or so of stepping up (ha) my workouts, decreasing my carbs and increasing my protein intake.

  • Total steps for the week: 143,795 Steps
  • Total miles for the week: 80.15 Miles
  • Total DB minutes for the week: 205 Minutes
