WUB - That Dog is Still Chasing Me!

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Oh... that's actually the sound of my breathing...

But I started back on my 10k training, and today it was 2 minutes of walking followed by 3 minutes of running for 45 minutes. The best thing about today, when I timed my first personal 5k in August I ran it in 43 minutes at a 13:59 per mile average pace, today I ran/walked 3.24 miles in 45 minutes and my average pace was 13:53 per mile average! I broken out of the 14th minute and into the 13th minute on my running speed for these interval programs! :-D

I'm saving the Butternut Squash for tomorrow to try with a London Broil. So I don't know what either of those things are, but I did get in my rainbow today with Parsley, Tomato, Bosc Pear, Grapes and Carrots. Other things too, that's just the bare minimum for the challenge :-P

My weight loss won't be amazing tomorrow, possibly non existent. I would really like to see even at least a 283.9, but next week I plan to combat my sorry exercise regime of this week for a plan where I do cardio everyday next week Monday-Saturday. Sunday I'll do my official exhaustion tests again for my strength trainings.

1. Lose 20lbs, 20 inches. 7.4lbs, 12.6 to go, 0in, 20in left. 7 weeks left.
2. Run a 5k in under 43.5 minutes - Unknown
3. Track my food and water every day - Goal!
4. Continue my 10k training, push up training, sit up training, and squat training. - I actually committed to my rest this week! But I think I got 100 fitness minutes this week.
5. Run a 10k in under 90 minutes! 1:48:00 Walking as of 9/15
6. Run a mile in 10 minutes - 11:50
7. Read one Bible chapter a day (or 7 a week) - I failed this this week.
8. Take update pics - I posted new photos yesterday.
9. Make money - No Moneys.
10. Encourage my team in some way each week - Goal! But not as well as last week I feel.

As for this week's challenges I got in 5 fruits/vegetables everyday, and I did the rainbow challenge as well. I did a kickboxing beginners workout on Spark People, and I supported 5 team members. So a week I didn't think I'd get done with a perfect score... I got done. :-P 300's every week since Season 15!

Now I need to try and knock myself out so I'll sleep before midnight tonight. Not great odds.

    Congrats on your mile time!! That is AWESOME! I think I'm averaging 15 minute miles right now, but I don't know if I could even keep that pace for longer than the 2 miles that I've done so far! I can't wait to see what your next 5K time is!!

    You'll have to post how the butternut squash is! I assumed that I'd eaten it before, but now that I think about it, I think I've only ever had butternut squash soup, and it was pretty tasty, if I remember correctly.

    And FYI, I love the fact that one of your goals is to read a chapter in the Bible every day. Even though you didn't meet the goal this week, the fact that it is important enough to you to make it a goal is just one more thing that I admire about you.

    And even though I'm not on your team, you encourage the heck out of me, so thanks for that!!

You remind me so much of myself, i've achieved a perfect score every week since I started doing blc challenges too...hope that doesn't make me lame, but that's why I couldn't stand to let you sit out the rainbow challenge....cause I know what it means to want that score....hehehe

    Did you get your sleep? I've been struggling with that the past 4 days myself. I hope to get a cat nap in today inbetween football games.

    Keep it up! The photos from your last blog are proof that your hard work is paying off!

    I think that you are reaching important goals. Maybe you have too many goals per month ? Focus on the ones that are the most important to you. You can do it!!

    awesome work! Getting 13 minutes for a mile that is awesome. I do 19 minutes a km, but 1 km is 0.6 miles. So i am pretty slow still ...

    300s on the challenges every week?!?!? You're a beast! That's so awesome and enviable, lol. Great job :-D ...I also think it's awesome that you varied your rainbow freggies instead of getting the same thing in every day like I did. I bet that made it a lot more fun!
