Day 96: Running

– It would be great to run outside and enjoy the view.

Wednesday is running day at the gym because I hear that you are not suppose to do weights two days in a row because I have to let my body recover. It is funny I am just running at the same place on the treadmill, can be very tedious. Running is a simple body motion if you think about it, just one foot forward follow by the other with the hands going the other way. But I can get quite a workout and burn a lot of calories with running. I noticed that I burn about 150 calories in 15 minutes. That is about 10 calories per minute. Even though it is not a lot if I compare it to the donuts that I ate in morning. It does add up quickly. Running is also a great way to release stress. And when I am running, I usually let mind wander off and plan the days ahead. It is a great use of time. I think my goal for Wednesday is to run at a faster speed and maybe do some ab exercises afterward. Something to think about for next week.
