treadmill runs

I woke up hungry! So I had a snack before going to the gym in the morning; something I hardly ever do.

Then at lunch I was starving again so I ate way too much. It's one of those days…

Running felt much better in the head today than it did when I tried it Monday…! Whew. I'm still not jazzed about exercising alone in general but I got the job done today. That's worth something anyway.

It also felt better in the body. To tell the truth, I was still kinda beat up from my race when I tried to run Monday so it's that surprising I opted to bail.

Today I just started mellow and then slowly wound it up until the half hour was over. I did not have the fortitude to go longer which is why I ran twice. Plus, I can't go very fast for very long so this gave me two opportunities to go fast. :)

ASIDE - a few days ago my weight was one hundred and eight f'ing five pounds. I had been wavering between 179-181 for months and then about two weeks ago it s l o w l y started to climb. It's been going down now for three days, what a relief. It's interesting how easy you can get in the habit of having a beer with dinner or chocolate at work, etc. And also interesting how hard it is got out of the habit. From experience I know I feel the best (for cycling anyway) when I am between 175-180. More than that and it's not so good. Boy, did I just have a girl moment there? I think I did.

yes it is, what's more interesting is that you think this is somehow not normal or good.
