After a great week of intermittent fasting and running (finally), I saw continued progress on the scale. I’m down 2 pounds this week, putting my total weight loss at 135 pounds. I set a mini goal of getting out of the 190s before I meet with my doctor for my physical at the end of March. With just 0.4 lbs. to go it looks like I’ve got a shot.
The sun finally came out this week, melting much ice and snow. That meant the walking trails and sidewalks were clear, allowing me to restart my 5k training. I’ve got a month before my first race.
Right now I can run 1.5 to 2 miles. Occasionally I can hit 3 miles. If the weather holds for the next 4 weeks, I should be able to run 3 miles consistently by race day.
If you told me I’d get to a point in my life where I was itching to go out for a run, I’d laugh at you.
I guess under all that weight an athlete was itching to get out.
