Yesterday I met with the nutritionist! I really want to get below 200 pounds and I am tired of this roller coaster ride. Even though I have not lost the weight I have done a lot of work on eating better quality foods, I just need to be consistent with it. I really do want this marathon in October but I really need to lose some weight to make it easier. We mapped out the calorie range I should stick too depending on the type of workout I am doing, it is just what I needed. Just like my runni...

I have to start out by giving a shout out to my big brother (one of them, I have 3 older brothers). Yesterday my brother Klaus, age 45, did his first ironman. He completed it in 10:26:51. I watched his progress all day online. They had a live feed at the finish line and I saw him cross and he looked great. He did the marathon in 3:32:10 AFTER swimming 2.4 miles and biking 112 miles. He was ranked 12 in his division and 114 OVERALL. Amazing.

This weekend was very nice. I sure needed...

224.25 this mornig.... whew! The 228 from yesterday scared me! Now doing speed work in 95 degrees may be the cause of the drop BUT I hydrated all day yesterday knowing it was going to be warm and hydrated after. Luckily it was not too bad last night. It was not very humid and there was a nice breeze. The workout was a Ladder = 1200/ 1000/ 800/ 400/ 200. The 1200 you run at goal 5k racre page and then you run a little faster for each of the other sets. I pretty much hit all the goal times. ...

Welll Crap. 228! I did not go crazy in Chicago. I did endulge a little but just 2 meals (I in chicago and just a little for father's day weekend). Overall I had my best eating week ever last week, 5 days out of the week was very good and just 2 meals that were not. I just wish the scale would reflect how good I feel physically. It was a very busy work weekend, then got home Sunday around 6pm. Had dinner with the family for father's day and then boom back to work on Monday and it was very...
