In other news.
Hubs and I went running this morning. Huzzah! We finished 3 miles in about 40 minutes. He’s kind of not feeling like he’ll be able to run the 10 miler in August in his Vibrams so we’re going to get him a pair of regular sneaks this weekend before we run our 6-7 miler on Sunday. We’re still alternating between running/walking. Today we took about a 1.5-3 minute break once each mile. When we were running our pace was about a 10:00-11:00/mile pace which is about where I want to be. We’ll go slower on Sunday for our long run but I really want to make sure we start really fitting those in. Mainly because while we’ve been running we haven’t been running as much as I would like.
But still I’m feeling more energized. Feeling like I’m eating a lot better. Like I’m actually getting fit and losing the weight I so long to lose (healthily, ‘natch). This morning the scale was right on 150.0 – which totally meets my goal of being under 150 by the time we go to CT next week.
I won’t count it til Monday when I go to my meeting though.
