People trying to encourage me when I'm on the trail
Friday, March 29, 2013
I felt like throwing this out there just because this has become more frequent now that more people are on the trails.
So I'm about 235 lb. I literally just can't lose weight. I've been eating healthy, working out, doing strength training and I've lost 5 lb this year. That being said, I've gotten stronger and I can now run a little faster and a little longer.
This past week I've had a lot of people who think they are doing me favors, The perky marathon runner who comes by and screams, "Woo! You can do it!", "You've got this!" and the like, the old people who congratulate me for being able to run for an hour and everything in between.
I feel like I need to wear a shirt that says, Yes, I am fat, but no, I'm not out of shape.
Anyone else feel like they need to wear a shirt like that? It's a little uncomfortable sometimes because I'm out there and I'm doing a 13:23 pace and feeling like a rock star because I used to be @ 15 min mile just a month or two ago and when I have all these people come out and try and encourage me I feel incredibly out of place.
Today I did about 6 miles though. I'm excited for Sunday's 11 mile run. That will be my longest duration by about 1/4 of a mile.
