View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day
I have been around but for some reason did not take the time to blog.
It is HUMID here in St. Louis. But the good news is that over the fourth we are going to have some very nice weather. Usually on the fourth it is just hot and humid.
Running has been going pretty good! Last week at speed work we did this workout: 1 set was 2 - 200s and then a 400 with a walk/jog rest in between. I ran my first 400 under 2 minutes. I did it for all 3 sets!! I think my best time on a 400 was like 2:05. I got 2 1:98 and even a 1:96.
This past weekend we have this race called the Macklind Mile. It is flat and then there is a big downhill at the end. You can really run your fasted mile. Last year I did it in 8:44, this past weekend I did it in 8:13!!! Next year I am thinking I we see a 7:something.
So running has been going pretty good. Even though training team has not officially started I still me with a small group of my friends on the weekend to run. Training team for the Fall 1/2 marathons starts on July 13th!
My eating has been OK. I have been logging a little bit but not consistently. I think because my running is going so well, it is making me not pay as close attention to food. Also, I can try on clothes at the store and feel pretty good when I am trying on clothes, that is all good BUT I don't want to get too comfortable. Running would be so much easier if I did lose 20 more pounds. Over the weekend, yes over the weekend I logged faithfully and it felt good. I was not perfect in my eating but it definitely made me make better choices.
I have not stepped on the scale in about 2 weeks. This is not a good thing for me to do either. I just have to do it but I want to have a couple more days of decent eating in first.
I actually do have a goal. In 5 weeks for speedwork we will do our 5K on the track. Just losing 5 pounds before this would be very beneficial. I am thinking that is my goal for now.
Hope everyone has a great week!!!
