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.
