I have no idea what got into me today.
I went for a walk on my treadmill. I put on my Tarah Pro earbuds and cranked up some techno music. I then pulled out the iPad so I could read. There was no one else in the house.
The book was really good. About 250 pages into the 7th book of a 14 book series. My 2nd time to read this series but it’s been many years.
2 hours later I woke from my funk. Oh my!
It was really nice though.
An easy pace: 8.26 miles
 
I started running again. It's just too cold to ride a bike. Only did five miles each of the last three days but it's a start. I used to run all the time before my hip replacement and I was faster and felt better back then but that was over two years ago. We'll see. I'll give it a couple of weeks and reevaluate. Once the weather warms I'll be back on the bike anyway.

Only 5 miles a day . What would you consider a good workout? Five miles seems like more than enough.
 
I have been unable to do much these last few months. Disc problems. Started light weight work out mixed with some walking and pilates. Fell good sooooo far.

When I was running seriously I would do fifteen miles every other day between Fire shifts. Those days seem long gone. I've been retired exactly five years now so that probably say's a lot. And the hip certainly changed my ability for sure.
