Nice Weather for a Waterlogged Girl

Run: 6 miles, Run Time: 1 Hour Additional workout: 3-15 Abductors @ 80 lbs, 3-15 adductors @ 80 lbs, 45 lateral crunches

So yesterday was pretty challenging. For some reason I was really tired at about 3 miles but I knew that I had to finish 6 and pushed on. It was pretty tough and there times when I really just wanted to call it "done" but I made it. That sounded super cheesy but it was a tough workout.

Today is supposed to get into the 50s. If it's nice enough in the evening, I may just go for a run outside. We'll see. I may at least run through Como Park and then go back and do a little bit of some strength work at the gym.

I've really been watching what I eat the last few days. I read somewhere that every pound you shed really helps out your run. So I'd like to shed about 15 pounds and hopefully that will make this training a little easier. I've bought into the Crystal Light stuff. I drink SOOO much water during the day. I think I'm up to about 4-5 bottles of water. That makes for a ton of bathroom stops. My coworkers must think I have a bladder problem. I also started keeping track of my calories on Glamour's fitness plan tool. It's kind of a pain in the butt and I'm not really a huge fan of counting calories but it has helped to keep me from eating too much. Although when I calculated my calories it said I needed to eat 2100 to lose weight. 2100! That's a whole lot of calories...I think somewhere around 1900 sounds at least a little more sensible. 1500 ideally.

Hey there, I just found your blog on RBF. I'm in the same boat: I'd love to lose 15 lbs! Congrats on pushing through to finish the 6 miles.
Have you picked out your 1/2 yet? Best of luck with your training!
