I knew something odd was up last week when I magically dropped 13 pounds. So when I went in this week I was prepared to either not lose any weight or gain a little. Luckily, I just stayed the same. Granted that means I’m still in the Clydesdale club, but I’m not worried. I think what happened was something was wrong with the scale LAST week. Either it didn’t calibrate right or something. It’s not that I doubt I lost weight, it’s just that I doubt I weighed 213 to begin with. More like 205 maybe?
Regardless, I’m not worried. I’m happy with what I am doing and I can already see and feel results in my body. Yesterday, with a head cold, I ran 8.5 miles at Rock Bridge. I felt really good and my legs felt strong. I didn’t get tired and could have run more. That is a big improvement and I have been feeling that all week. Stronger and stronger.
I really just need to keep up with what I am doing. I might ease up on my portions a little more, but if I train hard and don’t stress about pounds, I will be 175 by summer.
The crazy weather around here is… well… still crazy. Yestarday? 25 degrees (16 down in the valley where we ran) and tights. Today it is 10am and already 54 degrees. It might hit 60 today. I am going mountain biking in the middle of January this afternoon, in shorts. Tonight? It’s supposed to snow… Tomorrow? 30 degrees colder. Sunday? 65 degrees. I usually put up my shorts and warm weather stuff and get out my cold weather gear around Thanksgiving. This year it’s all out and I have no idea what to wear. Even my clothes are confused.
Olfactory hallucination of the day: Yesterday while running through the most remote part of Rock Bridge State Park… I smelled ham.
Weight: 200lb (my scale says 196) unchanged
Goal for the week: Get out of the Clydesdale division.
