7/6 – 7/12 Recap

11 Jul

7/06 – Ran 4 miles @ home

7/07 – Elliptical 5.16 miles (45 min) @ work, upper body workout

7/08 – Intervals 3 miles @ work

7/09 – 5 miles @ home in the evening

7/10 – Elliptical 2.10 miles (20 min) @ work, short upper body, stretching

7/11 – 12 mile run at home

7/12 – Rest

Notes: 24 miles of running this week. That hasn’t happened in a long time. I’ll have to make sure I give my body time to rest next week.  My long run was very slow almost 12 min/mile, but I enjoyed it. The 5 miler on Thursday evening was an inpromptu run and I enjoyed it also. I stopped pushing myself too hard during those runs. I am learning to only push myself during interval runs and on the elliptical rider. It is helping me enjoy the long miles.

Father in-law update: The husband, mother in-law and I accompanied Roger to his last chemotherapy on Monday. He’s endured 12 of them. The 11th one hit him very hard and he was dreading the last one. I am glad that this is over and we can only hope that it killed all of his cancer. He will have a PET scan next month which will let him know if the chemo did what it was supposed do. I am running around with my fingers crossed.

Weight:

7/06 – 179.5 lbs

7/12 – 180.5 lbs

I gained one pound!!! I am not sure how that is possible with all the working out I did. My calorie intake is set just under 1800 cal/day and if I work out then I can add those to my intake and still should loose about a pound per week. I consumed almost 4000 calories less than I was allotted. Practially I should have lost 2 lbs this week. This is very dissapointing. My clothes are looser than they were when I started three weekes ago, but I don’t think it changed any over the last week. I am going to blame it on the time of the month and move on. I will do less cardio on Tuesdays and Thursdays and work more with weights to stimulate my metabalism. Wish me luck!

    Sounds like you’re still going strong! Happy to hear it! also, you have to remember that muscle weighs more than fat! I hardly ever weigh myself and just go with how my clothes fit. 🙂
