Week 8 Half Marathon Training Recap

Another crazy week of training.  had a race on Saturday as my “long run”.  Skipped my cross-training again due to the Saturday run, but that’s ok.  4 weeks left until the Half Marathon… holy cow it’s getting close! Here’s the numbers for this week.

Starting weight – 282.8
Running – (4.5, 4.5, 5.01) – 14.01 total
Yoga – 60 minutes
Finishing weight – 277.8 (4 pounds lost EPIC)

Along with a massive weight loss this week, I noticed my measurements on MFP had been taken a month ago, so I took my measurements again.  My chest measurement is down a half inch from 49 to 48.5, my stomach (at the belly button) is down 2 inches from 52 to 50 while my waist(hips) was unchanged at 43,  but that didn’t surprise me.

  • 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.
