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.
