This week I weighed in at 214.2 for a weekly loss of 1.6 and a total loss of 29.6. I'm almost at that 30 pound mark!
It was a good week. I tracked and I trained. I struggled with a couple of my runs and nailed a couple others. I hit 10km in my training this week. To be quite honest, it was a real challenge. I'm trying to figure out my nutrition with those longer runs and I don't quite have it down yet. If I eat too much before, I feel sick while running. If I don't eat enough, I get dizzy and can't keep going. And, this is only at 10km. Eventually I'll be doing much more, so I need to figure out the foods that work for me.
What do you eat before your runs?
Now, on to a conversation I had with my 3.5 year old son...
Me: Sweetie, I'm going for a run now, so I'm going to be gone for a bit.
Spud: I wanna go for a run too Mommy.
Me: Oh, I know you do, and you're a really good runner, but you're a bit too small and Mommy's a lot bigger.
Spud: I'm not small. I'm a big boy Mommy.
Me: You're right Spud. Mommy shouldn't have called you small. You are a big boy. It's just that Mommy runs really fast.
Spud: Me too.
Me: I know. But, it's getting a bit late at night and Mommy's a lot older then you. How about we go for a run together another day?
I don't try to push the running on him, but he sees me go out to do it often enough. When we're out for bike/chariot rides, he often informs me that he's going to run instead. Last week, he ran for a solid 0.5km. I'm just waiting until there's a chance to put him in a kids' fun run. I think he'll love it.
