Weekly Recap 9-3-12 to 9-9-12

Did a little bit of shuffling, but not too bad this week.  Missed my friday weight lifting thanks to the after work employee tailgate party, which was fun.  All my other workouts fell into place.  Even continued my extra Saturday run and even went a little longer than my “long run” for Sunday.  All in all a good week.

Starting weight – 259.4
Monday – Spinning – 50 minutes
Tuesday – Run – 4 miles
Wednesday – Yoga – 60 minutes
Thursday – Run – 4 miles
Friday – REST
Saturday – Run – 3.3 miles
Sunday – Run – 6.9 miles + Yoga – 60 minutes
Total Mileage – 18.2 miles
Ending Weight – 258.6 (0.8 pounds lost)

Very shocked to see a loss this week with crappy eating both Thursday and Friday, was fully expecting a gain, so pleasant surprise.

Slightly lower mileage than last week by virtue of the Saturday run being slightly shorter this week.  Next week I have my 5 mile (8K) race on Saturday, so that will be my scheduled “Long run” since the plan says 5.  I may run something Sunday, maybe something short like 3-4 and try to keep up the 4 day a week running.

In other news… It appears my December race is gonna end up being a half marathon.  As we chewed up the miles around the lake this morning and chewed the fat the whole way, my running buddy Laura (who by the way is a Marathon Maniac and is running two marathons next weekend, one Saturday and one Sunday) had the idea of that if I add the Mistletoe Half Marathon to my schedule (I was planning the Mistletoe 5K as my December race) that I will have 3 half marathons in less than 90 days (From Nov 4th to Jan 12 for Raleigh, Mistletoe then Disney) and that will qualify me to join the Half Fanatics.  It’s a local race (so no travel, no hotel) and the registration is a modest 45$, rather than 100+ (100 for NOLA, 150 for Disney, 75 for Raleigh), so how can I not do it?  I hope this doesn’t turn into a “What the Hell am I doing?” scenario.

  • 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.
