View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day

Back to 217! I actually increased how many calories I have been eating. I had been only eating back 1/2 of my exercise calories and decided I might need to eat back more and it seems to be helping. I am going to try this again this week and see if I still get the same results.

last week I met with my running coach to learn about strength training for runners. I think it was the best $50.00 I have spent on running. I learned a lot and I got a lot of running drills to better help my stride.

Sunday was my longest training run, I had to run for 3 hours and 30 minutes. I ran 17.13 miles!!!! I had to do the run in my neightborhood which is pretty hilly BUT I felt very good the entire time and the last 2 miles I was able to increase my speed.

Next week I get a little break with a 12 mile run.

Oh, the weather is PERFECT running weather in Missouir. I just love it.

My husband is busy looking for another job to suppliment his new part time job status. It is a little stressfull but we are really lucky about his part time job.....they could have just let him go. So he has a really great part time job and hopefully with everyone hiring help for the holidays he will have another one too.

I also had a talk with my husband about his health. He is just eating so much and not moving at all. I told him things are not going to happen for him until he starts taking care of himself. He agreed with me. We bought him a good pair of walking shoes this weekend so hopefullly I will be seeing him take some walks and start to watch his calorie intake. I understand his is depressed about his situation but sometimes you have to fake it to start feeling good.

Great job on that scale missy! And, of course, awesome job on the running! :thumbu2: I bet the extra calories will help you out both on the weight loss and running fronts. I tend to eat back almost all of my calories and it really helps me - everyone is different of course but I think it helps me to stay fueled consistently for the longer stretches. Can't wait to hear about the next long one. :smile1:

Nice weigh-in, girlie pie! I think a great running coach is essential to anyone who runs seriously or long distance. My running coach even recommended a specific personal trainer who focused on training people to get through their halfs/full marathons.

I wish I could run along side with you, this weather here is perfect for running. And glad your husband has you to depend on for both his health and happiness.
