View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day
Winter, I know, I dont have to say any more. We got another storm last night, snow and freezing rain and school canceled again for the girls. I can handle the snow but what I am really getting tired of is the Wind!!!! It just hurts when you step out the door.
Luckily I have been able to get in all my runs in outside. I will do anything to not have to run on the treadmill. Running has been going very well. Unfortunately, this past Sunday training team was cancelled because of freezing rain, a good decision. I love being a pace coach but it was kind of nice doing a long run by myself. I have a trail that I run on that is my go to bad weather trial. It has a ton of tree cover, so even with freezing rain; you can run safely, I ran 10 miles. Since I was running on my own my average pace for the run was 11:32 and I felt great. Last fall my pace was 12:00-12:30 and I did not feel that great during or afterwards.
This afternoon I am meeting up with a small group from training team to do hill repeats. I am not sure how well we will do because of the snow and sleet we got last night but we will do our best but also keep it safe.
I finally saw a new number on the scale, 195! The past couple of weeks the scale had been bouncing back and forth 197-199 AND I have been crazy kind of hungry. It has been challenging since I started increasing my mileage. I was starting to just pop food into my mouth without thinking again. It is the same hungry when I started the plan in October. I have been texting my trainer and we are working on my food plan so it will be easier to stay on track. Things are going so well I dont want those old habits to take over again. It is a matter of balancing my meals and being fueled, just enough.
This weekend is my first run. It is a 6K, a bridge opening run BUT we are expecting snow again Friday and Saturday. Tim wants me to just run at Tempo pace so I dont get hurt. This is the first race of several that I am signed up for. This weekend is the 6K, next weekend is a 4 mile Chocolate race and the following weekend is a 5K. I am excited to see progress! Hopefully, the weather will cooperate!
Does anyone what the biggest loser? What are your thoughts on Rachel? The thing that stuck out for me is that she just looks so thin. She did not look athlete healthy. Like Dani last season looked like an athlete at the finale. I wonder what her BMI was?
