Today was a great run. Yesterday I took the day off so I could rest up after Wednesday’s amazing run. The only thing I did yesterday was shovel the snow in our driveway, which uses completely different muscles than running (or so I told myself), so I could be set to run again today. My hubby had a vacation day today so I had to take advantage of it and get a good run in today.
I ran 2 hours and 5 minutes and ran 9.8 miles, jus short of the 10 mile mark. I could have kept going but I wanted to save something fun for the next time. So far this week I’ve run 43km and since January 1st I’ve run 179.25 km so I’m feeling really good about this whole half marathon in April. That’s still 3 months away so I am really excited about the whole thing. I’m going to rock it!
I always feel great when I run, and even better I’m half way through my baby weight loss. I gained 43lbs with my baby girl, and after six weeks at home I had 18lbs left so I started weight watchers on January 1st and now I’ve lost 9.2lbs already and only have 8.8lbs to go to lose the whole thing so I’m feeling great. I even joined the x-weighted challenge in January and it’s tracking my weight loss and my fitness goal is obviously my half marathon. I love having all these places to record my progress.
So today to celebrate being more than half way to my first weight loss goal, aka my pre-pregnancy weight, we went out for lunch and I got to have French Fries and gravy. Mmmmm. But I balanced it with a wrap sans sauce, and a glass of water. It was just delicious and my baby was so well behaved the whole meal. What more could you ask for!
