Been under the weather...

Just a cold, but I usually make a note in my exercise log just so I'll know I wasn't being completely lazy! =0)

Healing up from that 5K yesterday. Not the smartest thing to do, running a 5K without training for it. Ah well, this too shall pass!

Muskie 5K Fun Run

Today I ran the Nevis Muskie Days 5K Fun Run. My time...40:09. Pretty awful, but at least I DID IT. (My best time is around 28 minutes, but heck, I haven't done any running this year!) I walked the first half mile or a little more, then jogged the rest of the way with walk breaks.

There was a record breaking turn-out of 83 people! I think last year there were
40, so that was great!

You know it's a small-town race when the numbers are written on 3X5 cards! The entry fee was $3 which purchased the button which entitled you to participate in a plethora of events.

(I've looked in the mirror. This is not what I look like. Unfortunately, it's what I look like in most photos. But it's more to show what the race looked like. So I'll swallow my pride.)

July 8

Did some hoeing and hand weeding in the garden this morning. Hey, that counts! I even tried hoeing left-handed for a while, but I think I forgot and switched back pretty quickly. Habit!

I also lugged the garden hose around and watered various animals which was a little exercise.

My plans to transplant some lilies from pots to the ground were thwarted by a small swarm of wasps, one of which delivered a good sting to my right temple. Ouch!! Time to buy some Raid!

Did my E-cises, ab crunches (56) and back leg lifts (30 each side).

Here's what E-cises look like if anyone's interested. These are the maintenance exercises:
