Exercise Day 265

Today I did what I would consider a really tough workout, but the numbers don’t really reflect it πŸ˜‰ Sometimes that happens.

Exercise Day 264

Yay! Today was a “slow day,” meaning I worked harder/longer than usual yesterday and so today I took it easy. Did I mention it’s like 25Β°F out? OMG.

Ran: 2.0 miles in 30 minutes.

Solid cardio exercise… definitelty not pushing it, but getting the exercise thing done and avoiding injury/burnout. πŸ™‚
