Missed run-too much food?

Monday, September 12, 2011

Last night we went to dinner at one of our favorite fancy restaurants that we hadn't been to in about two years. We had an awesome dinner and of course we ate too much. I didn't feel bloated and uncomfortably full, but I knew I ate too much. Then I had trouble sleeping later. I'm realizing this morning that the couple times we have had a big celebratory meal out that I have slept badly later. This morning when I got up I had indigestion. I really waffled on my run. I am struggling a little with depression and I figured the endorphins from a run would boost my mood, so I wanted to go. But my stomach only wanted antacids and fizzy water, and I just didn't feel like I would make it. So I bailed. I am still not ready to eat so I brought some eggbeaters and a banana to work with me in case I get hungry before lunch.

This morning I weigh 150.6, a new low I haven't seen in years. Finally I have my end goal in my sites, but it sure is taking work to get there. Anyway, I shall now do the Snoopy dance all over the boat while my morning coffee is brewing. Yippee Yippee!


Run 25-Running in the light again

Friday, September 09, 2011

This morning I didn't leave the house until 6:30, when it finally got light. I got up and loaded up the espresso machine, ate some cereal, got out my clothes, etc while I waited for the light. I did 7 minute intervals again today. The third one was tough but the first two were ok. Sometime next week, maybe Wednesday, I will try an 8 minute interval.


Run #24 Better than I think

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

It was dark this morning when I left, and fairly dark until about 6:20, so it is time to start juggling the morning schedule, as it was definately too dark on my run. I'll try shuffling around my morning routine and leaving around 6:20 on Friday and see how that works. I decided this 6 minute hump needed to be gotten over so I would try for 7 minutes. But it was dark and hard to see my watch, so when I finally looked, after guessing about where 7 minutes would put me, I found I had been running for 7minutes 40 seconds, and it wasn't too bad! So I did two more 7 minute intervals, for a total of 21 minutes running and 12 minutes walking. I will do 7's again on Friday, and think about bumping to 8 next week sometime. The next hump I hit I will push a little harder I think to get through. It feels good to have made progress after all!


Run #23- 6 minutes still whipping me

Friday, September 02, 2011

After many meals out with the in laws & not much exercise but a day of sailing on the Bay, I felt all bloated and resolved this morning to get up and run, which I did. Three 6 minute intervals again. Six minutes still seems to be kicking my butt and I wonder if I will ever get to 7. I may just need to push on it. Maybe I am taking it too easy...hard to tell. Today I fly to PGH for two nights for a surprise 90th bday party for my grandmother. I get back Sunday night, and may or may not run on Monday...

    Sounds like you are back on! Have fun at the birthday party. Don't do like me and have too much fun. LOL. I love beer, cake and dancing. Not exactly in that order...or maybe the order was right. Ha. Enjoy. We'll be here when you return.
