No loss! I'm guessing that I'm building a lot of muscle between all the running and weights. My body fat percentage went down to 29% though. That's pretty cool to see, since I was at 50% body fat when I started this journey back in January 2010. Yes, that's right. it was at 50%! Insane, huh? I am proud of this accomplishment!
Last chance runs has officially begun!
I'll be running outside between 5-6 a.m. 4 times a week this week.
I'm reserving Friday's long run (7 miles) on the treadmill.
Next week, I'll be running Monday-Wednesday at 3.5 miles outside too.
I'll rest on Thursday and Friday, and carbo load.
I've decided to add an extra carbohydrate every day next week and also fill up on turkey spaghetti on Friday for lunch and dinner.
I'll probably gain a little bit of weight next week, but it will be worth it when I run my 10K without a whole lot of problems with endurance and stamina. All the carbs will be good for me. I'll also be experimenting with dried pineapple rings too.
I ran outside this morning, and my time was about 4 minutes slower than usual.
It could be that it was already warm at 6 a.m.
It could be the extra 4 pounds I was carrying in my CamelBak.
Four minutes isn't bothering me.
I'm proud of the run I had today because despite how warm it was getting, I didn't quit and start walking. I've told myself that if I'm going to sign up for a race (and pay for it!), I'm not going to walk any of it. I think that will just push me even harder to train better.
Everyone who runs has their own opinions about running and walking. This is just mine for me.
My twins aren't sleeping as well as they have been for most of the summer.
Twin Boy has been waking up at different hours of the night. Last night my hubby (thank goodness) went into the nursery to sleep with him in the big bed at 12 a.m.
The other night I was there at 3 a.m.
It's nice that we're taking turns. I would be a zombie if we didn't do that.
I've already told Hubby that he's on twins duty the Thursday and Friday before my race. I desperately need all that sleep and rest.
