Anyway, Damian got his school clothes and school supplies and we made it home in one piece. I didn't run Saturday, but I did go 3.2 miles on Sunday. I was thinking I wanted to try 4 miles, but I decided that would be too big of a jump. I'm still not 100% with my leg and my endurance is barely at the 2.5 mile range. So I guess I will live with my "short" long run. =)
Monday I spent the entire day cleaning the house. I have my living room set up so that the couch's back is to my front door. Here is a very crude drawing of my living room. =)
Yesterday I went for another run. I didn't go on Monday, I sweated a lot cleaning the house. Anyway, I decided to add some sprints to my run. I noticed this time around that I lost a lot of weight (again) when I was starting to run again, just like I had lost when I first started running in March. I am wondering if it's because I alternated walking with running. So I decided I'm going to try to do "intervals," run slowly and then sprint for a short time, then slowly again, and back to a sprint and so on. And see how that does with losing weight. Plus, I heard that it makes you faster. =)
I was dripping sweat when I got home. I could only sprint for 20 sec at a time and then had to run slowly for much, much longer. I even walked some to catch my breath. But, if I keep doing it then I will get better. Some day I will be able to do longer sprints and no walks. =) And hopefully my weight will start falling more regularly.
I joined Myfitnesspal to track my food. I now have joined SparkPeople, MapMyFitness, and Myfitnesspal. =) I joined SparkPeople a long time ago and was pretty faithful logging my food and exercise but quit when I joined MapMyFitness. I joined MapMyFitness because of the app on my phone that tracks my runs
