Big mileage numbers this week as I ran almost 33 miles including Saturday's 16 miler. I am amazed how quickly the miles are adding up, but I must admit, I am feeling fatigued today. Woke up early to hit the treadmill and never made it out of the house. Right now, I'm in the meat of the training plan with the second of five consecutive 30 mile weeks on tap this week.
Those miles, along with one spin class and control over my eating led me to a loss this week of 2.0 pounds, down to 235.9. A total loss of 178.1 pounds. I'd like to think that I can continue these losses right up until the big race to get into the 220's.
I'm really missing the other activities that I was doing. Just one spin last week. I'd like to do more. No weights. I need to do more. 33 miles is just 6 hours of running (assuming I kept an 11 minute pace, which I did not), but add in the early hours, the travel to and from the gym and it adds up. As the weather gets better, I know I'm gonna want to be on my bike.
What's on tap this week -- just 35 miles, including 18 on Saturday.
C'mon, May 4 -- Just 48 days and counting!
