View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day
Ran the O'Fallon Firecracker 10k yesterday. Yeah for sprinkles and clouds, it helped not having the sun beat down on you with all the humidity. Beat my PR by 9 seconds. Final time was 1:04:49. My previous best was 1:04:58.
Since it was cloudy and sprinkling I was shooting for 1:04 (running coaches goal was 1:03-1:06 depending on the course and weather). Frist half felt great. Not sure why but I thought the course was flat.....it was not, the second half was hard fought.
I feel good about my time but know that things would be a heck of a lot easier if I got these last 40 pounds off! I am just maintaining which is not a bad thing. I just want to keep inproving and all my efforts to run faster will soon slow down if I don't drop some weight.
I am going to be 41 this Friday. It is time to get these last 40 pounds off. Even if I just lot a pound a week......that would be awesome.
Here I got again to commit to logging 6 days this week. Food is my problem. Exercise I love (both weights and cardio)
