Update - Long time, no post!!

I've not kept up with this as much as I was planning on.  I've got to remember to set time aside in my schedule to get some updates up more often!  Anyhow, on to the weight loss progress!  YES, there has finally been SOME progress!

Week Date Kipp Weekly% Overall%
3/22/2011 275
25 9/13/2011 250 -4 -1.63% 9.09%
26 9/20/2011 250 0 0.00% 9.09%
27 9/27/2011 249 1 0.40% 9.45%

29 10/11/2011 245 3 1.21% 10.91%

That finally brings me to my "official" 30 pounds lost marker!  I'm setting aside another $25 for Give Kids the World!  Up to $75 in the "till" now!  

Tonight marked my last scheduled run for the B210K (Bridge 2 10K) program.  I didn't hit the 6 mile mark as I'd hoped, but I've proven to myself that I CAN run for an hour straight!  Week 6 of the program is just a series of 3 60 minute runs.  Since I repeated a couple of weeks on the B210K, this places me square at the front door of my beginning of my 1/2 Marathon Training Schedule!

Tonight was also my first run in my new "cool" weather gear.  I was impressed my how cozy I was running in them.  The pants are just a tad bit too long for me, and need to be taken up.  The skin tight base layer long sleeve top didn't bother me as much as I thought it would.  I usually don't like wearing long sleeves.  The part that was bothersome was since the material is rather "slick", my armband for my iPhone kept sliding down on me!  Oops...  it was just a minor nuisance.

Week 1 1/2 Marathon Training Schedule:

Week Sun Mon Tue Wed Thurs Fri Sat
O-11 10/16 10/17 10/18 10/19 10/20 10/21 10/22
1 Stretch &
3 M Run 2M run
Or Cross
3 m Run +
Rest 30 Min
4 m Run

I don't have a set solid plan for my Cross-Training.  I was hoping to get a bicycle, but the money fairy hasn't been kind to me this year yet.  So on the days where it says Run or Cross, I'll probably be running.  Fridays, not quite sure what to do yet.  Of course, living in Central Indiana will probably put the kabash on a lot of outdoor activities very soon.

I had also planned on getting some home "equipment" from Thera-band.  I need a new set of the "light resistance" bands.  I also wanted to get the Stretching torture device from them too.  Again, the pesky "money" thing is interfering with things.  There were also 2 books on my list, one for weight free workouts, and the other was for resistance band training.  I can manage with what I have on hand for now.  It just would have been nice to started off with new shiny things! 

Another stumbling block that has come up, I've run through my Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11's quicker than I thought I would.  They say that your running shoes ought to last around 400 Miles.  Due to my weight, I've gone through them in just less than 200.  I'll definitely need to get a new pair a few weeks prior to the race, as I'll need adjustment time.

Well, enough of my whining and moaning tonight!
