I hope it's OK with you all, but until I meet with my doctor next week, I'm going to stop the official weigh-ins. It's affecting me in a negative way, and I really don't need that at the moment. I am still eating good for the most part and the exercise has gone well. I still weigh above 200 but not as high as 208. I think it was 203 last I checked. I'm treating myself to a pedicure if I can ever get back below.
I had a great run on Sunday. I only did 5 miles, but I ran the first 4.25 straight. I've been trying a new thing on my easy runs - seeing how long I can go without stopping to walk. It's cool to see progress.
Then yesterday, I did some speedwork. I ran three miles, and the last mile was my fastest - and it was below 12 minutes. 11:48, I think. It's definitely progress.
Because I had a hectic shift at work yesterday, I couldn't stair climb during the shift. I didn't finish work until 1:15 a.m., BUT I still managed to do the climbing when I was done. Interesting to climb stairs at 1:15 in the morning, but I didn't want to NOT do it. And I did the most I've done so far - 520 steps (25 flights). It felt good. I'll have 580 to climb on Sunday, but it will be much harder than what I'm doing now b/c now I get to go DOWN every 104 steps, so I get that reprieve. Going straight up is going to be quite a challenge. But I hope my training will help me.
My left leg is stiff today and hurting a bit (imagine that) so I'm resting today. Hope to do a nice slow run again tomorrow.
