This month's mileage...

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Covered 408.2 miles this month, not counting kayaking or elliptical mileage, That is an average of 13.6 miles a day. Not too bad. To tell you the truth I thought it would be more though. It felt like more. Maybe because it was mostly walking miles. Cooper is the most walked dog I know. Happy dog! So, next month I think I will aim for 400 miles once again. Thursday will be my crazy long walk to start the month out right, but I need to get serious about training for the 5k in June, so my mileage might go down a little. I can walk until the cows come home, but running is much harder for me, so I don't go as far when I run. I might even do one of the 5k training programs again, but this time outside instead of on the treadmill. I can do a 5k, no problem, on the treadmill, but when I take it outside I am not there yet.

I lost just over 2 pounds this month. That is about what I expected, so I am happy with that. I should be at my goal weight by my 2 year Sparkversary if I can keep up this rate of weight loss. That would be a terrific way to celebrate wouldn't it? It is difficult to wrap my head around the fact that I have lost nearly 160 pounds. Picture 160 one pound boxes of butter stacked up. It is a daunting image. I have actually shed that much weight in two year's time. Mind boggling!

If you really want to boggle your mind, think of your 160 loss as a whole healthy person. It is a common weight for a 5'5-6" woman. You have lost that other person you were carrying around with you every day. Say goodbye to her forever and hello to the new only one of you, YOU. Congratulations,

    I'd be interested in reading about some of the details for your long walks. How do you carry water? Do you take food or other "energy"? Do you walk the same routes? Any thing you'd like to share would be of interest!
