Weekly Recap 3-26 to 4-1-2012

I’m not currently training for anything, but I wanted to continue the habit of doing a weekly training recap.  If nothing else it gives me something to write about once a week when I may not have other things to write about.  I’m about to add some new classes and cross training to my regimen because I just felt like I wasn’t doing enough.  Here’s what I did this week (new daily format)

Starting weight – 265.4
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – Run – 3 miles
Wednesday – Yoga – 60 minutes
Thursday – Run – 3 miles
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Rest
Sunday – Run – 4 miles + Yoga  – 60 minutes
Total Mileage – 10 miles
Ending weight – 267.0 (1.6 gain)

First off, I’m not at all surprised to see a gain this week, in fact I expected it.  For two reason, first because my huge losses (4.6 lost last week) almost always seem to be followed by a small gain, just the way my body adjusts I suppose, it never fails.  Second, I suspected I was eating too few calories during my couple of weeks of not logging, but I had no way to tell, so I assumed I would gain a little as I increased my intake to get back on my plan and my body will have to adjust again to it.  Small loss or hold pat next week and then maybe start losing again I hope.

I’m adding a second day of Yoga to my workout schedule, I feel like I’m ready that I can handle that and also help with the extra stretching.  I’m also going to add a cycle class  on Monday’s for cross training.  A lady in my Wednesday Yoga has been trying to convince me to come to cycle, so I’m gonna give it a shot.  Hopefully I can keep that up.  Here’s what my schedule will hopefully look like with the new classes:

Monday – Cycle
Tuesday – Run
Wednesday – Yoga
Thursday – Run
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Run
Sunday – Yoga

I am also going to start running on the greenway midweek cause I am sick of the treadmill, so while it’s worth it for the  yoga alone, the extra classes will also help me feel like I am getting my money’s worth out of my YMCA membership.

  • 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.
