Weekly Recap 11-26-12 to 12-2-12

Another pretty normal week leading up to my third half marathon.  Got my taper runs in and rested on the days I needed to rest.  Skipped spin on Wednesday to let my legs recover but hit everything else.

Starting weight – 240.0
Monday – REST
Tuesday – Run – 4 miles
Wednesday – Yoga – 60 minutes
Thursday – Run – 3 miles
Friday – REST
Saturday – Race – Mistletoe Run Half Marathon
Sunday – Yoga – 60 minutes
Total Mileage – 20.1 miles
Ending Weight – 241.6 (1.6 pound gain)

Another post half marathon weight gain, but I can’t say I’m surprised.  With the huge holiday lunch at work on Thursday and then the Track Club christmas party (where I heavily rewarded myself with food and drink) I was expecting this.  It’s actually not as bad as it could have been and not as bad as the week after Raleigh where I gained over three.  But at this rate, I’m not going to lose anymore weight until after New Years.

  • 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.
