2 Run 3, Week 9 (BOHR): Only One More Week To Go! ( + Weigh-In)
Started my workout around 3:30 pm this afternoon. Temperature was roughly 50 degrees. Ran for 58 minutes. Decided to run a different course tonight, which ended up being a big giant loop around the neighborhood. Left knee felt a tad bit tender towards the end, but other than that, the run went well.
Just for kicks I weighed myself after my run & the scale showed that I lost another 1.8 pounds. So, that means that I'm now back to where I was on 11/13 -- i.e., back to my lowest weight thus far since the start of my running program in late July (2007)! Yea!
I know, silly me, it's probably all water-weight loss, but I just couldn't help myself. I just had to know if tonight's run was helping in my quest for "damage control," especially after last week's food fest (and I'm NOT talking about the food eaten over Thanksgiving either)!
(Speaking of which, I forgot to mention what we did for Thanksgiving: Erik was feeling somewhat better, so that night he & I went out for a fantastic dinner at a local Chinese restaurant; both us ate really healthy & delicious meals: I had an amazingly delectable steamed fish dish, prepared steaming hot in a ginger & scallions sauce, & he had an excellent chicken dish. We both had soup. It was really cold out, so the hot food really hit the spot! ;-) )
But back to the subject at hand:
Taking a body fat reading & weighing myself tomorrow will be a much better gauge of what's really going on. 8-)
I think if I just keep running between 30-60 minutes, atleast 3 times a week, I'll continue to go in the right direction. Yea!
