So it's been a little bit less than successful staying on the diet lately. I weighed myself last week and it was less than heartening.
Fortunately when I weighed myself this morning, it was more in line with where I want to be going. I'm back down to 203, and certainly still need to drop some more weight to speed up things on teh bike, but I feel alot better than I did at last week's weigh in. It was ugly. Maybe someone had their toe on the scale or I was chock full of water, but it wasn't a good number.
Anyway, this weekend was pretty stresssful. I had a bunch of stuff unrelated to fitness going on, but exercise wise it was good. I did my first training run with the Striders and I feel good about it. I ran 6 miles at a 10:47 pace, which I was pretty pleased with. My right calf is a bit sore after whatever I did to it a couple weeks ago so I am pretty hesitant to push myself lest it blow up again and sideline me. Fortunely I feel like I'm somewhere around 90% with it and hopefully in the next week or so it will get back up to 100% so I can push myself when I run.
All in all I feel good about meeting the 12 minute pace and securing the awesome swag. If all goes well today, hopefully I will be able to get home tonight and catch a bike ride. Yay!
