Current weight is 175.5. That is up 1.3 pounds from last week. Since I changed my day back to Saturday last week I actually started the week pretty badly. Used a lot of points on Saturday and Sabrina (that would be 1./2 half of my followers) made a cake that we of course ate every night until it was gone. Only 2 workouts also contributed. As the great philosopher Pumbaa once said "Leave your behind in the past". This week will be better.
SacFit Saturday was a really good workout. Missed having Jess along (the other 1/2 half of my followers), but I understand why she was not out there. We did 8.5 miles today and they flew by. At the end of the workout I felt like I could go a few more miles. I am trying to keep my run intervals at a 12:00 pace so I don't wear myself before the end of the run. Today that worked pretty well. A few times I found I was going 10:00-11:00, but I was able to slow it down. Previously I was doing a 9:30 quite a bit and that took it's toll towards the end of the workout. I know at this point I need to gain stamina rather than speed so I can shorten the walk intervals and eventually lengthen the run intervals. Overall pace was 14:43 which is good for a long run day.
The toughest part is doing the training, but not having any races for this season. Too many conflicts for me to commit to a race, so I just look at it as advance training for the marathon training next season.
