2 Many Calories & Another Bad Run

Thursday, July 09, 2009

It all started with my first (for this year) Stampede breakfast and ended with my not wanting to cook dinner. Probably because by 3:00 I'd already consumed way too many carbohydrates, sugar and sodium....... I figured at 4:30 that I'd have enough time for the fries, grilled chicken and shake from Wendy's would settle by run time. BLAH! It did not. The run started out great and then, as my bud so eloquently put it, I had to "slow down to keep it down". LOL. There are four more days left to this week. I have to behave because w/o my extra workouts I have GOT to make my runs work and the last two have not.
The plan for the rest of the week:
Thursday: Cross-Training & 3 km run
Friday: BodyPump
Saturday: hiking around Drumheller
Sunday: 9 km run

(boy-oh I'm whiney this week)

  Whiney is okay! We are all there at one time or another. Lol, my group has continued to run together 4 times a week as we wait for the next clinic to start and each night there is someone who has overdone it with stampede food and ends up walking to keep it down. I suppose its part of stampede life :)

Now go and do what you have to do for the rest of the week!

5% Challenge - Week Two Begins

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

Add a minimum of 60 fitness minutes to what you did last week.
Stay within calories this week.

My results for last week:
I was up one pound to 129 when I weighed in on Monday morning. I'm not surprised but I'm not impressed either. I scheduled fitness last week and scored about a 50% on that. I only completed 1035/1800 and that's down from the 1938 minutes I had been average over the past month. I did all my running but nothing else. I was, on average about 35 calories above cals everyday except Friday.. I REALLY overdid it on that day. The weekend wasn't much better than Friday.

So far this week I've run once and blown my calories once. I really cannot get into this. BLEH!

MY plan for this week is to get back on track with my calories.
Monday - off
Tuesday - run 3 kms
Wednesday - run 4 kms
Thursday - run 3 kms
Friday - BodyPump
Saturday - walking (A LOT) around Drumheller.
Sunday - run 9 kms.

5% Challenge Week One Report

Monday, July 06, 2009

Ok so the challenge this week was to schedule our fitness so I did. Here was my plan.

Monday - BodyAttack - didn't happen. I had to sit home and wait for the boys to return from their dad's.

Tuesday - Run 4 kms - I got 'er done!!
Wednesday - Run 3 kms & BodyFlow - I ran but did not go to flow class. I just ran out of time between work and run club.

Thursday - Run 4 kms - DONE DONE DONE

Friday - BodyPump - I got invited to a BBQ. Given the way my stomach still feels
today... I should have gone to BP

Saturday - Awesome Abs - got lazy so it didn't happen

Sunday - Run 7 kms and (possibly) BodyFlow - I ran (again) but didn't go to Flow. Richard brought the truck over and we loaded the garbage out of my backyard to take to the dump. Maybe now, I'll do something creative with my yard.

I can't wait to weigh in tomorrow (sarcasm). Average calorie intake this week was: 1852 (22/day over) and that doesn't count Friday because I have no idea what any of my calories were after 5:00 p.m. I just know that none of them were good. Now I'm going to head to bed and try to dream up a challenge for week two.

Running faster

Friday, July 03, 2009

The last three out of four evening runs I've spent running with the guys at the front-ish. It's improved my times considerably. I've averaged 5:44/km twice and 5:58/km once. I'm usually a 6:00-6:20 kind of runner. I'm liking the changes a lot.

In the last four days, I've averaged 1807 calories a day. My range is 1480-1830. I've been good with fruits, vegetables and water, too. Another small victory.

Now if only I can make it to my next two planned classes.

Feels like Sunday

Wednesday, July 01, 2009

I'm really starting to miss my morning classes. And I haven't been to an evening class all week. I'm bummed. BUT I've been running like I'm supposed to and my calories have been good so I'll focus on that for now.

Back to work tomorrow!
