TRIAL: The wind just won't ease up. I live near the airport, so we feel every ounce of the windy blasts as they pick up speed across the flat runways. Our street is like a wind tunnel.
BLESSING: I ran today! 5.6 miles. I never ever take this for granted.
TRIAL: Did I mention the wind? Yeah, I can handle that. But my hamstring muscles were still sore this morning. It took me 14 minutes to complete my first mile. No joke. Once I started running, I felt a popping sensation, particularly in my right hamstring. So I stopped, stretched, and walked it out. I debated turning around... and then it gradually
BLESSING: I can feel the quickness of weight loss. With 15 lbs off my frame since Jan. 9, I'm running at a quicker pace (without dying). It feels good... and that makes my runs happy.
TRIAL: I'm still fighting to eat the right foods. It's a double edge sword: eating to fuel my workouts AND to lose weight. You gotta know when to eat 'em (CARBS!) and know when to walk away...
BLESSING: I got mail!! I arrived back from my run just in time to meet my UPS man. He had a Saucony box for me. I'm so nervous getting new shoes - especially when I switch brands. I've run exclusively in Asics for over a year now - but these Saucony ProGrid 5's fit like a glove! Review to come once I give them a test run...
TRIAL: Hmmm, how to explain to my husband that I NEEDED another pair of running shoes.
Little Girl and I went shopping today to get my -15 lb Reward... TaDa!
Guess what I'll be doing during Biggest Loser tonight?
