I signed up to run a 5k on June 29th. Of course that means I now need to get serious about training for that distance. I managed 2 miles in 22 minutes today. But that was on the treadmill at the gym. I did set the incline up at 1%, so it was better than running at 0%. I think I need to increase the incline if I want to use the treadmill to train. I can walk a marathon in 6 hours, so I should be able to run a 5k, right? Maybe. Maybe not.
It was another day of not feeling hungry, even though I went to the gym and worked out. When I do get hungry I crave fruit. So, I bought fruit today. I now have strawberries, cantaloupe, apples, oranges, kiwis and a mango sitting in my kitchen. I was also craving brussel sprouts again. As long as it is mostly healthy stuff I am craving I will indulge myself. That seems to be key for me. It is easier to practice moderation when I am eating foods that appeal to me. That and eating a variety of foods.
