Week 2 5K Training Recap

I just got back from a leisurely walk through the neighborhood and that will put week 2 in the books of the 5 K training.  A slight bump up in mileage which will go up every week.  Here’s the numbers.

Starting weight – 304
Running – (1.75, 1.5, 1.75) – 5 miles total
Cycling – Crosstraining – 9.25 miles
Walking – 1.35 miles
Total Mileage – 15.60 miles
Finishing weight – 308 (4 pounds gained.. dammit)

Lesson learned this week, I need to do better with my eating because even with heavy exercise I ended up gaining back the 4 pounds I lost last week.  I also just realized that when I am taking my weight at the Y I still have my shoes on, but since it’s consistent with all of it I will continue to stick with that.  Running shoes are light, but hey every ounce counts right?

  • About Me

    I am a recent graduate in Food Science (NC State, 2009) and I work for a major food manufacturing company. I love food, but I can no longer eat anything that crosses my path. About 24 months ago I begin a serious struggle to get my obesity under control and reduce my chances of developing Type II diabetes. Since September of '09 I have lost 50 pounds and I still have a long ways to go. I've started eating better and exercising more, including taking up running.
