LUNCH

10 miles out and back easy.  I pushed the pace a bit on the way back.  It felt good to let the legs run again.

Wake up weight 159.5-  I MADE IT! It took me 3 weeks and 1 day to lose 10.5 pounds. Now according to the rules of the contest I need to stay at or below 160 for the next 4 days. 

DON'T FORGET TO VOTE TODAY!

AM

20 minutes jump roping.  I almost made it the full 20 minutes without missing but at 18 minutes I lost focus and had 1 mess up.  So close.

Wake up weight 161.5- Oh the roller coaster ride of weight loss.  Now I have 1.5 to lose again.  And to think I exercised pretty hard yesterday and ate really well.  I did have a decent amount celery with humus before bed.  Maybe all the extra fiber made me weigh in higher this morning.  Oh well, I have 3 days to get back at or below 160.

Wake up weight 159.5- looking good to make my goal weight.  Doone was 0.5 pounds off this morning.  I'm thinking she will make it too, so we will both be winners. :)

AM

4 easy miles with 10 hill sprints thrown in the middle.  Total run 5.5 miles.

Upper body weights

Abs

20 minutes stationary bike

PM- probably just packing tonight, unless I get on the scale and see that I am too heavy.  Then I'll go out for a quick run. :)

It felt good to go out for a run this morning.  We got back from Belize Sunday morning at 2 am so I wasn't up to running yestereday.  It was a great relaxing week.  Maybe a little too great.  I really didn't want to come back to real life, but here I am getting back into the routine again.  I only ran once while on vaction, 7.5 miles one day in the middle of the week. 

Today- 8 miles easy

10 miles out easy, faster back. Legs felt strong.

I tripped over a rock (running in the dark) at about 1 1/2 miles into the run and went sprawling on the road. I don't remember the last time I wiped out running. That hurt, but I got up and pressed on. My hands, abdomen and side are a bit scratched up, but nothing serious.

Ran the local Turkey Trot with Cade (my 6 year old son).  We finished in 33 minutes.  He was very happy not to finish last like last year.  Chase did it in 25 minutes.  They were the ony 2 boys in the 12 and under age group so they took 1st and 2nd.  It was a lot of fun.

I really need to catch up on everyone's blogs this week.  I miss all my running friends.  Work has just been so crazy since I got back from vacation.

10 easy miles that ended up being a lot faster than I thought.  I'll pay for that tomorrow.

Headed out the door without a plan.  After 4 miles I came across a desert road and turned off the asphalt. Quickly the road turned into a small trail and then I was running through a wash with lots of rocks and uneven ground.  After a couple miles I found another old dirt road that went up and down washes.  Sometimes through the washes I had a hard time finding the road again.  I was having a good time exploring, but after 90 minutes, I decided I better turn around and head back.  Luckily I found a little better and shorter way of getting back.  

I finished having run 18.5 miles.  I'm guessing that wasn't the smartest thing to do since I haven't run more than 10 miles since April.  It was fun though.

6 easy miles.  My legs were tired, but felt a lot better than I thought they would after yesterday's run.

Side note: I went over 50 miles this week!  I didn't think I'd be doing that when I started the week.
