First, the good news:
I ran 9 miles this weekend, as planned. It was on Sunday morning instead of Saturday, but I still got up at 5:30 a.m. and ran for an hour and 45 minutes. Long slow run, it was. My average pace (I think--Garmin is in the car in my gym bag) was around 11:30. The best part of the run was that I had more in me. I wasn't wasted by the end and could have run another 2 or 3 miles fairly easily. That's a big victory for me, and so is the A.M. run.
I ran 22 miles last week, and a total of 67.1 miles in August. That's the most ever for me in one month.
We had a fun family weekend. Went to a local theme park/water park yesterday for Labor Day. Nobody got sunburned, which is no small feat with our fair haired/blue eyed clan.
Now the bad news:
I have no idea what I weigh today because I ate like a crazy person all weekend and didn't want to face the music this morning. I know I've gained. My skort is tight this morning. Dang it.
Even though I hit a personal best for running mileage this month, I am 2.9 miles shy of my 70 mile goal. I just didn't have it in me to run Friday or Saturday, and figured it was better to be smart and not get injured or burned out.
I'm so swamped at work that I shouldn't even be posting this, but I had to so I could get my head wrapped around all this stuff.
I'm not going to start the Fat Loss Code Cracking until next week. We have a party with clients on Saturday night, and I don't want to be in middle of a diet where I can't drink or eat party food. Which means I have to convince myself that I do NOT get to eat all the carbs I can get my hands on this week, in anticipation of the low carb 1st week.
There's lots more I could put under both categories, but that's the quick brain dump for the moment. I'm behind in blog reading because of the holiday, and miss my bloggy-friend fix. Hope to remedy that as soon as possible.
