Come Too Far

Saturday, October 05, 2013

Yesterday I was at 127.0 on the scale and had to talk to myself about not being disappointed. I'm hoping to go more than 6 days this time of weighing less than 127, but I accept that what I have direct control over is my eating. Weight fluctuates. This morning I was at 126.8, which isn't much different, but feels a whole lot better.

Enjoyed my speed work this morning, which included 10 half-mile repeats. I was disappointed, though, when I asked about the 4:40am workout on Monday morning with the two hour and 30 minute pace group leader for the Lakeland Half Marathon. The pace leader for the 2:37 group told me not to come. She thinks I need to slow down because I'm not totally healed. Oh, well. I'll enjoy my sleep. I just might make the 2:30 time on November 9th anyway. (Part of me wants to trash talk: that would show her!! But my better self just wants to run well.)

I'm not going to let minor disappointments get me down. I've come too far and accomplished too much.

    You are doing well! You are healthy and fit. You'll run your best in November, and maybe you WILL show her, but you're too classy to really do the trash talk thing. (Besides, it's terribly embarrassing if you do it and then can't live up to the boast.)

    Yes you have. Good advice for yourself and for me too.

    Oh, so close! Maybe your body just feels happiest at 127. (127! That sounds like runway model weight to me!)

Glad your pace leader held you back. I always think I've healed faster than I really have; most people seem to be that way and you are in it for your big race. Don't be one of those thoroughbreds who gets scratched at the post!

    I think I remember you saying you still felt something in the glute. Perhaps you do need the break just in case. This isn't a set back for you, its merely a speedbump. You are still a going concern and will accomplish your goals in fine fashion!
Even though I am an insomniac, I simply couldn't imagine exercising at 4am!!!
Maybe you need to look at the average weight around your ideal weight over time. As you weigh daily, you should be able to graph your progress. It would be very illustrative to see where your body might be trying to fix a set point..
Keep up the great work!

    emoticon It is best to make sure you are totally healed and then on race day - run your race and no one else's!

    You are doing GREAT...don't let something small like this get to you...though I do understand...but that is why I have to stay AWAY from the scale...don't know what I will actually do when I finally DO reach maintenance!

Hang tight, Marsha, you are a WOMAN after all...so I am thinking you will reach a pattern to it all over time...regardless, you are maintaining...and to my knowledge, no one stays the same weight all the time! emoticon

    Hang in there! Let you body heal so you can continue running. Otherwise, you may not be able to run at all. (That's what I faced.) emoticon
