Training, exercising, dieting, for 26.2 marathon “run” on my 75th birthday.
9:25 a.m., Monday, September 25th: Lost 1.9 lbs. this past week, thanks to my CapturedDiscipline® safes. One contains Cape Cod Potato Chips, the other holds a quart of Haagen Daz coffee ice cream. I drool at the thought of them, but they are, as usual, time-locked-up until this evening.
Except for the last 3 torturous miles, had a really good “run” yesterday. “Ran” for 4 hours and 51 minutes; from 7:09 to 12 noon; burned 1,799 calories; pace per mile dropped from 17:21 last Sunday to 17:06 yesterday; weight dropped 1.9 lbs over the past week, from 171.3 to 169.4, and was 167.6 at this morning’s “weigh-in.”
Mile split times were lower, overall pace dropped from 17:21 to 17:06; and distance was longer by 3 miles (14 to 17).
Goal is to run my little private 26.2 mile marathon on November 5th at 159 lbs. That looks very attainable now:
