what I did this week: exercise edition

I’ve realized that accountability is a big thing for me (hence my “I want to run a marathon” post), so I’m going to try to post a weekly update here of my exercise for the week.  Here goes:

Monday 5/13/13:  a 16-hour shift at work= 9 miles walked for the day.  No wonder my feet hurt…

Tuesday 5/14/13:  walked 2 miles in 32:30

Wednesday 5/15/13:  a short (10-hour) day at work means 6.0 miles for the day

Thursday 5/16/13:  walked 2 miles in 33:10

Friday 5/17/13:  13 hours at work, 8.5 miles

Saturday 5/18/13:  3.2 miles in 56:38 minutes. with Baby Brother.  Also did 2 jogging “intervals” of about 45 seconds each (I was planning on starting jogging intervals by the end of the month, so I guess I got this done a bit early).  We went walking pretty early, on a beautiful trail.  Saw some local flora:

And some fauna:

This might have been encountered immediately before one of the jogging intervals...

What the heck is this?  I've never seen a caterpillar this color.

Sunday 5/19/13: 2 miles in 36:14 (I have no idea why my time was so much slower today. Must have been exhaustion.)

But I’m proud to say that I did every one of my planned workouts this week. Even Tuesday’s, which I had talked myself out of…then talked myself back into.  Win!
