Weekly Recap – April 2 – April 8, 2012

This was a very tough week, I won’t lie.  Adding the extra workouts to my schedule really took a toll on me.  The Monday spinning class was awesome, but it killed my quads.  My legs were sore all week.  I foolishly went out Tuesday and ran/limped 3 miles, so I’m sure I sabotaged my own recovery.  I skipped yoga on Wednesday even though the stretching would have been good for me, the stretches are worthless if I can’t do them.  I was off work Friday, so I moved my Thursday run to Friday morning and my legs were finally starting to feel better.  Here’s what this week looked like.

Starting weight – 267
Monday – Les Miles RPM (Spinning) – 60 minutes
Tuesday – Run – 3 (painful) miles
Wednesday – Rest/Injured
Thursday – Rest/Out of town
Friday – Run – 2 miles
Saturday – Yoga – 60 minutes
Sunday – Run – 4 miles
Total mileage – 9 miles
Ending weight – 267 (UNCH)

So, I didn’t lose any weight this week.  But I didn’t gain either, so small win.  But still a win.  This is the first time since I’ve been logging my weight has not changed at all, either up or down, so that’s interesting.  I would have expected even a tiny change, 0.2 pounds up or down.

  • 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.
