Today I am off of work completely. We did not work today so everyone got off for the first time in a looooooooooong time. I am going skiing. Audrey is so much better now than she was in this picture. It is amazing how much she has improved. I just wanted to do a quick post before I left to go skiing.
I did an amazing thing last night. I did my first tempo run. This run was 6 miles long with the 2 miles in the middle run at my 10K pace. So I averaged an 8:00 minute mile for the entire run but the middle two miles I averaged 6:52 minute miles. That was a first for me and very speedy. I was so proud of my self. It took me something like 48 minute to do the run and I burned around 570 calories according the my heart rate monitor.
Another great victory yesterday was no chew. And today no chew either gosh darnit. That means I have 5 days without it. Oh yeah, yesterday I was three days “again” without POP or soda as my buddy Robfitness calls it. I am trying that little health goal again. No pop.
My eating was superb since my weigh-in on Tuesday. I am pretty happy with how things have been going and I hope that I can sustain the momentum for the weekend. I am a bit sore today and have a 25 mile long run to do tomorrow. Going skiing today. Wow. What a new life I am leading. Strong and healthy
