So … I completed the second week of the C25K program. My performance in the final day of the second week was less than the second day of the second week. My distance was 1.90 miles at 14:33 per mile. The second day my pace was 14:19. So, a little slower. But, I’m still progressing and moving forward.
At least on a bright note, I got my fat lazy slug ass out of bed this morning and did the workout instead of waiting until this evening after work. That is a major break with my usual habit of staying in bed until the last moment before I need to rush to work. It was a good morning, kind of cool, windy, slight drizzle. It was good to be up and exercising in the morning. It was relaxing.
So about the weight in … since Thursday mornings are my chosen time to weigh in.
Is that good? It’s down 1.4 pounds from last week. My goal is at least 1 pound a week. The health experts say 1 – 2 pounds a week is healthy. So, I guess I had a healthy weight lose for the week. Yay!
However, I really wanted to see something bigger … like at least 5 pounds, maybe more! But I know that is not realistic. Maybe a fantasy, but not realistic. I’m happy with the 1.4 pounds this week.
My eating has been in control. Except for last night where I had an ultra gross hamburger from an expensive restaurant with a Vegas theme on the south side of Indianapolis, I’ve stuck to my
modified Subway diet and vegetable juice and water. I’m certain once my running and other exercising really kicks in the weight lose may increase.
Anyways … here’s a photo from the Monument Rock … one of the 8 wonders of Kansas. I was there on a foggy morning so my photo isn’t the best. A unique site, worth the drive on a rutted dirt road in the badlands of Kansas!
