The sun is shining today. Y'all know what that means!
I am kind of looking forward to it today. But I am also afraid of failing today. Both for the same reason.
I've been off of running now for 10 days - not including my 10K last Saturday. But basically I haven't done a training run in 10 days. I checked the calendar yesterday. I'm still a couple of weeks ahead of schedule for my training. That's not an issue. But I am expecting to be weak when I run today.
I can't wait to get out there and move again. Feel the success of completing what I set out to do.
So what am I going to set out to do today? Well, I should be tackling W5D1HM - run6min, walk3min, repeat 7 times. But that will bring me right back to where I left off. Should I be expecting so much of my body?
Why not? It ran a full 10K just 4 days ago. Sick and all. And I finished strong. So why not push it to finish this training run.
But I know better than to "should" all over myself.
I'll compromise. Seeing as it's my first training run since getting sick, I'll allow myself to stop if I need to. But I'm setting my music to W5D1HM and going for it.
I can dream of how great it'll feel if I actually finish...
Other than that, I am doing well. My weight is down. It was at 221.4 yesterday. Today - 222.4. But that's no biggie. As simple as water retention. Not going to worry about it. But I do want to see that scale drop below 220lbs soon.
Maybe I should make that my goal this week. Get below 220lbs by Sunday. What do you think? Can I make it this week? Or should I give myself a full 7 days?
Bet ya I'll make it if I give up my McD's eggs in the mornings... I know. Bad habit. I have to find a better breakfast solution. Maybe this is the motivation to do just that. Give up McD's for the rest of the week. Work my butt off - literally. And see if I can get below 220lbs by Sunday.
Why not? It's a goal. It's a high goal, considering how my weight loss has been going. But why not set it? Just because I might not reach it? Give me a break. You learn by not reaching goals you set. What good is it to set a goal you know you can reach. That's like me setting a goal to drink one more glass of water today. No challenge what so ever to it.
I think I just might need this kind of challenge to help kick start myself back into fitness.
Know what. I think I will. I want to see a value below 220lbs on my scale by Sunday. I saw a 221.4 yesterday. That's 1.5lbs. I can do this.
