Weekly Recap 5-21-12 to 5-27-12

Low mileage this week since my weekend run was just a 5K.  I still boggle at myself thinking “just a 5K” but hey, it’s the truth at this point.  Even at my slow pace, compared to a 10K or a half marathon, a 5K is a “sprint”.  I missed yoga on Wednesday because I was at an NC State Alumni function that night, and honestly after pushing too hard in RPM on Monday and then struggling through my Tuesday run, I needed a rest day.  I got in all my other workouts, including some light weight lifting Saturday after my race.

Starting weight – 260.0
Monday – Spinning – 50 minutes
Tuesday – Run – 2.5 miles
Wednesday – REST
Thursday – Run – 3 miles
Friday – REST
Saturday – Race – 5K + weight lifting – 30 minutes
Sunday – Yoga – 70 minutes
Total Mileage – 8.6 miles
Finishing Weight – 262.2 (o.2 pounds gain)

Well, I’m not very happy to see a gain this week, but at least it’s a small gain. But it’s another week wasted.  I was averaging very close to the MFP guideline 2 pounds a week, I was at around 1.8-1.9 pounds lost a week on average, now I’m down to 1.5 pounds a week, yes I know that is still good, but my rate is slowing and I’m not close enough to my goal for it to be slowing yet.  I know I’m losing inches from the way my clothes fit, but I can’t find my tape measure to verify that.

  • 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.
