Slow, hot, nasty run. Didn't log my food
Friday, September 11, 2015
I ran about 3 miles this morning and it took me way too long to do it. I forgot my phone and I didn't take my Garmin, so I don't know the exact distance. I do know that I ran for about 49 minutes. We went out at 5:00am. It was the same route I did on Saturday and Monday - the Loop. Today sucked.
It didn't suck because of my tendons. In fact, those felt fine (YAY! The PT was right!) Instead it was because of how miserably warm and humid it was even that early. Our weather right now is awful. Perhaps if we lived in Florida and I was used to the humidity I wouldn't mind. But we live in a very dry climate and I can't handle humidity like that. My knuckles were sweating. Add to that the fact that I only gave myself one day off in the past 10 days and you've got a tired me. I have to run/walk one more time tomorrow because I'm running that Couch to 5K group (luckily we're still in week 1) and then on Saturday I'm not going to do any running at all. Promise. I need the day off. My knees are sore and I'm just depleted.
I didn't log my food today. That was really not good. I didn't eat the way I should. If I don't gain weight it's entirely from the almost 600 calories I supposedly burned today from my hill run.
I went to David's back to school night. He's doing a lot better this year in middle school than he's done the past couple years in elementary. He's doing a much better job of staying organized and doing his work. But he does have a couple incomplete assignments bring down his grade in Science. He has a 99.33% in math and a 100% in Social Science right now though, so I'm really proud of him. He has a C in Language Arts, but with his Aspergers and difficulty with writing I'm not surprised and I'm fine with that.
I gave him direct instructions to go to to his Science teacher and ask what he needs to do to make up the assignment. Then that'll bring up his grade. Right now it's an F because there have only been three assignments and one of them is a big fat 0 for incomplete. Oops. I'm glad we can check assignments and grades online now. That'll be a big help for staying on top of him.
Tomorrow I will go back to logging everything I eat. I have to. I can't count on burning off calories to balance bad behavior. Not going to happen. But a single day's slip isn't going to kill me.
My weight was up this morning, but since I've got an all-knowing/all-reporting scale I know it's because I was retaining water. So no big deal.
Tired. Need to go to bed so I can get up at 4:30 again tomorrow. When I get up at 5:40 on Saturday to go to work it's going to feel like sleeping in!
