Goodbye 250….. 240 here I come

16 02 2008

This morning my wife and I hit the trails at a pretty cool park we have here in town. I didn’t feel up to working out today. I felt pretty discouraged from a past week of rough runs. Anyhow, my wife and I derived a plan of allowing there other person a 5 second head start and then we would sprint until we caught the person who had the head start. Make since? It was a great way for my wife to kick my butt, and she did. It was a type of speed work and it was very enjoyable. We ran around 3.5 miles in total.

On our way home from the run, the wife wanted to weigh in. I didn’t. I knew it was Saturday, and we usually weigh in today, however, I was pretty sure I gained this week. I asked if we could postpone our weigh in till tomorrow. She didn’t budge. I stepped on the scale, figuring at least a gain of a pound, but not this week. I weighed in at 248.7! I lost 2.1 lbs! I am so excited right now I could eat a whole pizza…. that’s probably not the best of ideas. I will stick with a protein shake.

Next weight in my sights is 240!

Nice Job! I just broke under 240 myself. I started at about 275 over a year ago. I have been running for about a year now, I did a sprint triathlon and I have a marathon scheduled for the end of May. I expected more weight loss by now but didn’t do much specifically to lose weight. I’m now on a weight loss program and have lost 13 pounds since Jan 1.

Keep going and we’ll both get to where we want to be.

Man… You are fast. I thought I was fast. But, 24:30 goal this early. I’m impressed.
