It feels like Christmas is over… You know how you work so hard for the holiday and then it’s over in 24 hours. In running, you train for at least 8 weeks and then you run for less than 2 hours and it is over. This article kinda sums it up! Still, with that said, it was worth it!!!
One more time I would like to thank my friends and family for such great support as I trained to run the 10! I am not lucky, just blessed!!!
So I am already signed up for my next race. It is in September and it is ONLY six miles (after running 10 – six seems like heaven). Want to run it??? My goal right now is to finish in an hour. So right now I am just working on getting quicker feet…. I know one thing that will make me quicker is, less weight. So I move on with the hard part – DIET! Stupid DIET!!! Hate how food has to make us grow out. I think if you eat clean foods you should not have to count calories… sadly that is my thoughts and our bodies don’t work that way.
I told you that this week I would report on total weight loss thus far. Well, I am down 20 lbs total since I started and that is five pounds less than when last reported. I am taking it slow on the weight loss. Hopefully I can keep it off once I am done. I guess I was hoping that all those 7, 9, 9, and 10 mile runs would do magic and make me shed more… but the trick is, I need to not eat like a wolf gone wild after a long run. Still, I feel so HUNGRY after long runs and I reward myself with food. It may be clean food, but it is too much food. So new goal: Write it down, everyday… Keep calories on target!
One cool thing is that when I pulled out the summer clothes… Things that were very tight last summer, I can pull down without unbuttoning. My hubby (He likes to butter me up) told me I looked 1 demensional the other day. Isn’t he grand???
