Can't complain about that, except that I have been there before...then down...then up...then down...then up... Anyhow, it's going in the right direction. Tracking my food has been a real eye opener. I have a better idea of what I am ingesting, and in turn, I am better able to eat healthy. I hope that is what is reflected in the scale numbers.
The 12k (7.5 mile) race went well. I finished with a 9:50 pace. Now it's time to gear up for the next race. I have about a month to prepare for a 10 mile race. That's right 10 MILE, not 10k. I think I will be ready. If I finished that with a 9:50 pace, it would be a miracle. I am shooting for 11:00. My daughter ran the 5k last Saturday. She did pretty good. She keeps improving. She stuck it out despite problems with blisters. She is a real trooper. I am constantly amazed by her.
BTW, our trip last month was fantastic. We played in a water park attached to our hotel one day. That was a lot of fun. In St. Louis, we went to Six Flags, Cahokia Mounds, the zoo, and Meramec Caverns. We ate too much, spent too much, and rested too little.
When we got back, the work was piled up for me as well as several other obligations. I have been crazy busy trying to everything as well continue training. Nothing is slowing down, but I will try to post at least with my stats once a week.
I addition to the Labor Day Challenge, I have a personal challenge. I would like to get down to 235 by August 11th. That's how much I weighed 19 years before when I got married. I thought that I would have hit that by now, but it didn't work out. It's a lot to lose by then, so I won't beat myself up if I don't. It would be kinda nice though.
