Between stress, pre & post-HM taper/recovery & vacation, this ole body is looking really soft. So lowest weight in 4 yrs (by less than a pound) is not the whole story - it's definitely not just about the number, truly, it's about how I look & feel.
I have 3 weeks until my dad's surgery. DH goes back to work Monday after having a month off. It is time for ME: time for me to whip this body into shape.
We went out for sushi last night & DH dug out a photo of me from our last dinner there on sept 1: I was surprised to see my arms looking pretty good. I was at the height of my HM training, which includes ST, before my taper.
I'm going to have to be a bit creative with my schedule at the end to work in getting down to my folks and/or cousin's (she lives near NYC & has offered to host us) and/or NYC, but it's not the first time I've had to work around obstacles with my running. I will make the adjustments that need to be done.
I won't be ripped in 3 weeks, but I WILL look more toned.
