Two day since the last post. Two trips to the gym in that time.
It was hard to do my circuit training lifting thing yesterday because the gym was packed. I did my best and got in everything but the cuban and lunges. I added some tricep pull downs to compensate. Went back up to 15 reps and it was tough! I made a promise to myself to do those other two on Friday when there are fewer people and more space.
Did the treadmill again today. Another 3 miles in under 45 minutes. I’m actually running a mile and a half. Granted it’s walk half and run half but it still adds up.
It rained today and I felt like crap before I went. The weather and the calluses on my feet made this look like a perfect day to skip.
Anyway, I told myself I would feel better afterwards if I went and I was right. The absolute best time is after I’ve run really hard and then take that half lap walk. I get a grin on my face that I can’t wipe off. Must be that “runner’s high” I’ve heard so much about. It feels awesome. Make no mistake though – the actual running part kind of sucks. I think I’m getting better at it though.
As far as weight goes, I’m hovering around 312 during the day. That’s progress. Looks like 309 shouldn’t be too far away.
