7 M Run

I once again put off running from Saturday to Sunday.  I was just feeling SUPER run down Saturday and decided to just really do nothing.  Sunday, however, I spent a couple hours mowing the lawn, then went grocery shopping and topped the afternoon off by trying my 7 mile run!  WHEW!  My internal systems didn't like that and I had some gastro problems after I hit my halfway point around 3.5 miles.  It made the return trip of 3.5 miles very miserable and slow going.

Tonight's 3 mile run could have been better, my legs were very tight from sitting in a training class all day today and I'm pretty sure I was still a bit sore from Sundays 7 mile attempt.

Last Year


4.05 M 
4.16 M

Last year at this time, we were driving back from Florida on the 10th & 11th.  I continued my Bridge 2 10K program for that week on the 13th and 15th.  My 1/2 Marathon training for the 2012 Disney World 1/2 isn't scheduled to begin until October I think.  This year I have an additional 1/2 Marathon that is in November, so my 1/2 Training started earlier than I did last year.

A decent week for me

Well, no pizza over the weekend and I put in a 2 pound loss!  I'm pretty sure the 7 mile run attempt also played into this.  It's a start back in the right direction, I just have to make SURE that I continue to loose instead of bouncing around the same weight that I have been for the past year.

We are getting closer and closer to the end of this years contest!  Neither Dad or I have made much headway, but hopefully we've both put it behind us and are going to continue in the right direction for the remaining weeks ahead.
