Back at it

Ran 3 times last week and then again today... did 4.  I walked about a minute after each mile.  The running averaged 9:30s.  I've been running with a friend and we run pretty easy.  It's good for me.  I am going to sign up for a fall race to motivate me over the summer.  Hope that helps.  I haven't consistently run much since training for the marathon in 2012.  I am such a bum. I haven't weighed much lately.  We went on a cruise and I weighed 135 when we got back.  I'll weigh tomorrow and see.

Made it back to the 30 mile week.
Monday - 7
Tuesday - Off
Wednesday - 4
Thursday - 3
Friday - 4
Saturday - 12!
Sunday - off probably.

Funny thing, 2 weeks ago I ran 9 early in the morning with a humid, sunny day. I was tired all day, really just worthless.  But I ate nothing right after running, didn't have gatorade on my run.  Basically spent the day in bed.  This morning, it was cloudy and a bit cooler, but I ran 12 miles - the last one being 9:07!- and came home, drank chocolate milk and had a yogurt, ice bath.  I feel so fine now.  A bit tired, but nothing like last week.  Yay for taking care of myself!

We'll see if I can keep up the miles coming off of this higher than normal mileage week - or will the dead legs creep in?

food poisoning break

After getting 22 and 23 miles in for two weeks straight - long run of 9 - last week I had food poisoning which made me have a setback.  Started back running this morning with a run that felt amazing, a 7 mile run @9:36.  Granted, not real fast, but my legs felt great.  I think they liked the break last week. :)  Hope to get up to 30 in this week possibly.  Yay!!

Back at it

got 22 miles in this week with a long run of 7.  Trying to hold myself back from going to much too quickly.  Running 5 times a week is tough on these weak legs, so hopefully I will feel like a runner again soon.  Feels good to be running consistently again.  It's part of me.

Hoping to up my mileage to 25 this week, maybe a long run of 10.

Only 10 weeks or so until Ragnar.

2 down, 9 to go

I've done pretty well.  A few hiccups the past week, but weighed in this morning and I've lost 2 pounds.  If only I could lose 2 lbs every week, July would be good. :)

11 pounds to go

I weighed in this morning.  Not surprising, I weighed 136.  I have not been doing any form of exercising consistently for over 3 months.  Bleh.  And I have been eating whatever... for real, whatever.

I am on a diet right now - Just did a Nike training workout and about to go out on a run with the boys.  I have Napa Ragnar in 4 months so I have to start training bunches.

Here's to healthy eating and exercising.  :)
