Weight Loss Ticker

Saturday, May 2, 2009


Yesterday's Training:
Weight: 230.5 lbs.
Run: 20 miles @ 11:16 pace, morning
Strength Training: none

Weekly run total: 50 miles

Last Week's Total: 42.3 miles
This morning's weight: 229 lbs.

I was going to split the running 14 & 6, but as I was running the 14, I imagined how I would be obsessed with needing to go run again and how psychologically difficult it would be. Since I was feeling pretty good, I decided to do the whole thing at once. It was tough, but it gave me a chance to rehearse some of the mental tricks I was planning to use to help me get through the last 8 miles of the marathon. I addition, it gave me a lot of confidence that I will actually be able to do the entire 26.2 miles. I was definitely whipped when I finished, but I was able to function after a little nap and my legs feel fine.
