Zee-Row (and a test of will power)

Yesterday’s mileage: 0 (and I have no guilt…!)

I still felt kinda sore yesterday afternoon so any stupid thoughts I had of running anyway went away pretty quick.  After taking the boy to a class at the library we came home and for some reason I was completely exhausted.  I was barely able to stay awake past 8:30 and finally just gave up and went to bed about 8:45.  Although I woke up early and I’m a bit groggy, I think I feel better.

It’s pouring down rain right now and the forcast calls for more, but I am going to try to get my run on this afternoon after work.  There is a 4.6 mile route around a local park that is all concrete bike path so the water shouldn’t be an issue.  The best news is that I pulled out my Gore-Tex running windbreaker (the one I bought for the LA Marathon over 11 years ago but never wore) for the St. Patty’s Day race and it actually FIT!  I was so excited.  Now granted it was a bit tight but that will get better.  I’m just glad to be able to wear it because this means I can run in the rain!  I know… sick… but I think it’s fun (as long as it’s not cold!) and today is supposed to be about 70 so I’m actually kinda hoping it DOES rain.  I’m so weird…

I’m wondering, based on my discussion with myself night before last, how on earth I am going to be able to cut back my calories enough to both lose weight quicker and still have enough fuel in the tank to run these increased miles.  Does it really matter?  Will the extra miles take more weight off?  Do I need to shave portion sizes and change what I eat even more?  My will power seems to be holding (I was offered a thick, gooey cinnamon roll this morning, given a McDonald’s sausage biscuit which I politely refused AND invited out for beers this evening by some work buddies… which I painfully and tearfully turned down as well) but I’m just not real good at analyzing my food.  I usually eat it and THEN say “wait… was that good for me?”  Ah, well.  Lot’s to learn and re-learn… sigh…
