6 Hills, new shoes and other things

Thursday, March 08, 2007

The best inspiration is not to outdo others, but to outdo ourselves.

Good news: I took my measurements this morning. I've lost four inches since January 28. Three of those came off my hips and thighs.
Bad news: I've gone outside of my calorie range 3 times this week. Not a very good example to the rest of the challenge group.
My main goal for next week is to stay in the range (1620-1970) for six days. Hey, nobody's perfect.
Really good news: We did 6 hills tonight. It was tough but I powered through anyway. I zoned out, listened to my mp3 tunes & ran. The fifth hill was the toughest. Overall though this clinic has been going better than last years'. I feel stronger and I run better than I did last March. I've done all my required hills without any sign of lasting shin splints.
I just. feel. good.
So I rewarded myself with something I needed and something else that I didn't really need but I wanted really bad. Brand new Nike Perseus 3's! They're so pretty!! Got them on sale AND I had a coupon AND I had a GC for $10. Then, because I had a coupon, I also bought myself the new Garmin I've been promising myself since they came out. :-) I'm super excited about seeing that in use. Now I HAVE to do my taxes this weekend. My poor little mastercard.

    Very inspiring blog Penny. I'm so jealous of the new shoes and the new garmin, but you totally deserve it. Way to go girl. PS I've been looking on ebay and the used garmins are going for abou $60-$80, and I don't even have that, so thanks for offering it to me, but I just can't afford it right now.
