Health Screening / This Week's Miles

We had a health screening at work today and I learned my BMI is 20.2 and 19 of my 128 lbs are fat, 15.2%. Since that's normal for my age, I'm hopeful that some of these extra pounds are actually turning into muscle instead of flabby mush. It's all a mind game for me.

I opted out of this morning's run to get more sleep so I am vowing to run 12 miles this afternoon after work. It should be in the mid 50s and sunny out.

This is what I'd like to get in for the rest of the week, totaling 50 mi:

Wednesday = 4 mi a.m.
Thursday = 3 mi a.m./ 6 mi p.m.
Friday = 3.5 mi a.m.
Sat = 18.5 mi
Sun = REST

Upcoming Miles

Okay...I'll run at least 6 miles this afternoon, 10 tomorrow, and 4 on Sunday. That will give me 47.5 for the week again.

Tuesday Miles

Yesterday afternoon I pulled up to the canal ready to run, turned off the car, and then my husband called and said he was skipping class....SO, I turned the car back on, drove home, and skipped out on running. Who really cares?

This morning I ran 3.5 with the b-n-law, came home and ate bfast with the hubby, and then headed out to the canal to run some more. It was warm and sunny and I seriously had the best run of my life. I ran 12 miles and felt like I could have gone on forever. I should have been able to just run and then fly, like on Crouching Tiger.

Afterwards I went to work, came home, and then took a nap. Now while sleeping, I've peed before, moaned before, talked, yelled "MOM!", and have jumped a few feet before. Never have I actually spit before. Today I had a dream that I was in a race and had to spit, and then I woke up to a big thing of spit coming out on my shirt! Uhh yeah, it was disgusthing.

Today/Tomorrow Run

I ran 2.5 miles this morning and will run, hmm....3-6 miles this afternoon, depending on how I feel. I'll run another 2.5-3 miles tomorrow morning with my b-n-law and then since I have the morning off work, I'll run another...is 10 miles fine?

6 Miles

Well, I ate FOUR FAT donuts this morning for breakfast and felt nastily stuffed afterwards. No, they weren't the small white powdered donuts that you buy in the little bag at the grocery. I waited over 30 minutes in line at Long's Bakery for some cinnamon fried (fried?? yuck) donuts that are gigantic and then stuffed myself with them at home. Why do I wonder why I don't lose weight after running a lot?

So anyway, I really wasn't in the mood to do my 5 miles in the afternoon but I made myself. I went out to the canal and there were tons of people there since it was warm and sunny out. For some crazy reason, I felt really good and was able to run 6 miles at a 7:50-55 pace. Woohoo!

Upcoming Miles

I ran 3 miles this morning and will hopefully do the P90x workout this afternoon. I was planning on running 21 miles tomorrow but I'm leaving early in the a.m. to go to IL. Soo, my plan is to run 10.5 (or so) tonight and do the remaining miles tomorrow before we leave. Hopefullllly that will work. I'd like to do 5 miles on Sunday. Wow, that would give me a weekly total of 46.5 miles which is something I haven't done in a non-race week for a long-arse time.

Saturday/Monday Miles

I ran 18 miles on Saturday; 6 of them with Tim. I wasn't able to run yesterday. I ran 2.5 miles this morning before work and then ran 7 miles after work to make up for yesterday. I had a huge, unhealthy lunch today and could just feel it bouncing around in my stomach and creeping up my throat while I ran. Yuck!
