Weekly Recap 11-12-12 to 11-18-12

Got back into the full swing of training this week. Made sure everything felt good and it did, increased my mileage to include a Saturday run and then a long-ish run on Sunday.  Missed my Wednesday spin since I had a work dinner that night, but hit all the other usual workouts.

Starting weight – 240.6
Monday – REST
Tuesday – Run – 4 miles
Wednesday – REST
Thursday – Run – 4 miles
Friday – Weightlifting – 30 minutes
Saturday – Run – 4 miles
Sunday  – Run – 7 miles + Yoga – 60 minutes
Total Mileage – 19 miles
Ending weight – 240.2 (0.4 pounds lost)

Well… a loss is a loss is a loss… but kinda disappointing after the huge gain last week, and next week is Thanksgiving, which while I don’t plan on totally pigging out, it is a change in the routine, so not looking good so far for the month of November.

Glad to get back to normal mileage.  2 weeks until Mistletoe half.  Gotta keep those miles cranking.  I’m at 629 miles for the year so far, which puts me 103 away from my goal of 732 (2 miles a day).  I should hit that as long as my weekly mileage stays around 20 miles a week.  If I don’t hit it I’ll get damn close.

  • 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.
