I had another not so hot run today. It was the first run in a long time where every single mile was over 10 minutes and I was struggling even to do that. I only had 8 miles planned for the day and I barely finished. I have, however, figured out part of the problem. I got on the scale this morning and discovered I’ve lost 3.5 pounds since last Wednesday morning. While that’s a YAY ( I still have a few more to go), when you are only about 1.5 pounds from your comfortable weight and about 8 pounds from your “skinny” weight, losing 3.5 in a week is excessive (even if some is water weight). I haven’t been dieting per se, just being really careful about my snacking and trying to eat fruit and veggies first when I am hungry. I think I may try throwing in an extra serving of whole grains and maybe some nuts each day and see what happens.
Thanks for all the kind words on my last post! Hopefully soon I’ll be rockin’ the running again.
