The Promised Pictures - Senior Games 5K

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Here's a picture of Aquagirl, her husband, and me before the Senior Games 5K. They came before 8am to keep me company. Cyndi even warmed up with me. I appreciate them coming to root me on so much!!


Then my niece and nephew came, too! I had my biggest contingent of supporters ever!! (As it warmed up I changed out of the long sleeve shirt into short sleeves.)


I should have asked them to take pictures of the end of the race, but I forgot and put the camera away in my car. Oh, well. I have a shot of the track, but it is too large to post and if I crop it you won't see much.

Here I am with my Gold Medal after the Senior Games 5K:


I didn't take any pictures at any of the other events. I should have, but was focused on other things --- like racing four events.

29:01 5K

Saturday, March 09, 2013

I'm so happy that I ran 29:01 in the 5K Senior Games and got the Gold!!

My cheering squad - Aquagirl and hubby and my niece and nephew were there. I really felt special!!

I also placed in the 5K Walk and the 900 Walk. So, 3 Senior Games events and 3 medals today!!

Then on to the Shamrock Run/Walk and Jog with your Dog where I paced my nephew. I pushed him, but he did it. He took 2 minutes and 2 seconds off his 5K last month (over 4 minutes off his first 5K in January) for 43:33. Believe it or not, but I placed with that time, too.

So, I'm tired. 10.2 racing miles plus warm up walks and jogs. 4 awards though. Will post a couple pictures and more details tomorrow. I am so blessed to be able to do this racing. Today has been a very good day!!

    That is so awesome! At one time I coordinated the local senior games in my area, and went to the state senior games several times. There are some amazing athletes and it makes me so excited what people over 55 can do. I don't know who is coordinating them now, but if I hear something I'm going to sign up this year. But we have a small community so there isn't a lot going on with it. Mostly people qualifying for state games, and sometimes there will be only one person in a gender and age category. I could place for sure. Not near your time though! That is really so wonderful and congratulations on all your medals today! Get some well deserved rest!

I'm Excited

Friday, March 08, 2013

Tomorrow is my three 5Ks day: the Senior Game 5K Road Race at 8:30am and Senior Games Power Walk 5K at 10am both of those in Bartow. Then I'm going about 12 miles or so to Winter Haven to do the Shamrock Run, Walk, and Jog with your Dog 5K with my niece and nephew at 1pm. I expect a busy and fun day!! I'm going to pack my lunch and snacks, even though they will probably have bananas and water at the first two 5Ks. I don't know what will be available in Winter Haven.

This is my 3rd year to run the Senior Games. In March of 2011 I ran my first 5K at the Senior Games. I ran really for the first time (since I was a kid and just ran around for fun) in January of 2011. I was only running once a week and had only gone the 3.1 mile distance twice before the race. I didn't have anyone there with me and knew no one. I thought my time of 31:19 was respectable. I just left after I was finished to go to my Weight Watcher meeting to tell someone! The next week I found out I had placed 3rd in my age group. Was I surprised. I had to drive to the Senior Games office to pick up my medal.

The next year I recognized a few people I had run with the year before including Brenda who had told me about my medal at Weight Watchers. She was the second place finisher in our age group in 2011, but had moved up an age group in 2012. I ran the 5K in 30:23 last year, placing second in my age group. The first place finisher was only a few seconds ahead of me.

But this year I'm really excited because I am going to have a cheering section!! Aquagirl has committed to come to the stadium and be there for me. My nephew and niece may also show up -- he wanted to talk to her before committing. So, anyway, I'm really grateful to have that support. I hope to break 30 minutes, but will be happy to feel that I ran my best for the day and the conditions. The last half is a steady but not steep incline.

So, please send a positive speedy thought to me at 8:30am Eastern Standard Time! (Altogether now: Go, Marsha, Go!!) Aquagirl (Cyndi)'s support is greatly, greatly appreciated. Thanks to you, too, for any positive vibes you can send my way!!

Wind-Assisted Record Run

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Yesterday I ran the trail near my house. After a good warm up, I ran fairly hard. I made one mile in 8 minutes and 50 seconds, the fastest I've ever recorded. I realized when I turned around something I hadn't realized when I was running. There was quite a wind. I read that gusts went up to 30mph yesterday. So that time was probaably a bit (or more) wind-assisted. After that I ran-walk-ran several miles very easily. Think I'm ready for my 5Ks on Saturday!!

Today I did half hour on the stationary bike with Aquagirl at the Y and then I did a half hour on the elliptical. Feeling good!

In case you didn't see it in my status, this morning I weighed 126.2, the least I've weighed in well over a year and just .2 from my happy weight. I've pre-planned my food for today, including going out to dinner with my local SparkTeam this eve. I'm committed to sticking to my food plan. I've pared down my morning and afternoon snacks in order to allow for my 780 calorie supper - six ounce sirloin (that's a treat because I only eat steak a couple times a year), plain sweet potato, and vegetable blend. I know that even when I follow it, I could be up 2 pounds tomorrow. Won't derail me. I'm going to have great races on Saturday and get to my happy weight next week or the week after. Just one more week until I celebrate 4 full years at a healthy BMI!!

Enjoy your food and dinner with your Spark Team!! Its no time to feel angst over a possible weight gain. Just drink lots of water to counter the sodium.
If you read a Chef Meg's tip on how they prepare steak in restaurants so it has that nice finish, you get an idea where the calories come from. Unfortunately, I can't remember the details, but was surprised. Its nice to get an insider's tips on the tricks the restaurant industry uses to make things taste and present better. You can request not to have this rub finish put on if you like.

So take your record, forget that wind unless you need to subtract from your time if you think it is blowing against you at maybe...50 mph....be generous with yourself, the wind meter isn't..

Plan to Keep Planning

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

I was excited to see a .8 drop on the scale this morning, taking me to 126.4, just .4 over my HAPPY weight -- also known as my target weight, goal weight, central weight, etc. It's been over a year since I've been at this weight:



The one thing I did differently is to pre-plan my meals and stick to the plan. I eat pretty well on the fly, but pre-planning helps me do even better. I plan to keep planning!!

Several times I've gotten close to my happy weight only to blow it. Well, not this time. I'm keeping my eye on the prize and redoubling my good efforts. Oh, don't think I'm starving; no way! I'm eating1510-1860 calories per day. That is what I get when I burn at least 2200 exercise calories per week and have my nutrition tracker set to lose 6 pounds in a year. It works! For years I tried to lose weight at 800 or 1000 calories daily. In the long run, that does not work for me. I proved it over and over.

Yesterday, as promised, thanks to MIRAGE727, I chose over 35 pieces of clothing that are too big and set them aside. I'm going to ask a few friends and family if they are interested before I donate them to the thrift shop that supports the wonderful literacy and basic needs nonprofit I retired from. I posted the opportunity for my local SparkTeam. Maybe someone local needs these clothes, especially as intermediate sizes. I have three really nice professional suits (like LeSuit) in size 12, a few 10's, and a bunch of 8's - mostly jeans and casual clothing. There are even a few size 6s that are too big. I don't think I have any 12s or 10s left in my closet. I kept my favorite pair of size 8 bermuda shorts. They are a spandex blend that still looks good and feels great -- just a little loose. I kept one medium sized white high V neck shirt, but plan to look for one just like it only smaller. I have a dressy jacket that is too big, but I need to replace it before it goes. Enough details!!

So, I'm going to keep planning my food and giving away the big clothes because my confidence is growing as I'm shrinking -- I'll never be fat again!!

    Planning to plan is key for me too.

Gotta say, although I've been the happy recipient of many "hand me downs" from girlfriends who got too heavy for their clothes . . . I was completely unsuccessful in offering clothes that were too large for me to others. There seemed to be no way of offering the clothes without implying, "You're fatter than I am". I ended up just taking 'em to a thrift shop . . .

    Planning makes such a difference... both in meals and closet organization. I'm enjoying watching how you do it and seeing the results. Keep up the good work. You encourage me!

    woo hoo, good for you Miss Marsha!
You got me thinking about my own closet...I need to get in there and weed things out. I have so many different sizes...I should part with the things that are too big now and just say good bye to that stuff!

I've been slowly weeding out my too big clothes too but I've yet to actually find them a new home. I guess I keep worrying that if I gain it back I won't even have my fabulous clothes and I'll have to start from scratch on a nice wardrobe. But I shouldn't think like that, I really should get them out of the house so I have no choice by to stay thin.

    emoticon Taking care of you and also helping out others! I need to go through my closet again. I realized this morning, that many of my tops are too wide now.

Keep the "prize" in sight! emoticon and you WILL DO it! emoticon
