This weekend wound up being pretty busy with family fun, although I have yet to perfect the art of taking awkward blog photos at every opportunity. I guess you learn how to make it work, when you want people to follow along with your adventures.
I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get in my long run, thus making my total mileage a little lower than I had hoped. 25 for the week, with 7, 6, 7, 6 every other day. I’m going to throw a party when I get in the perfect training week, because I don’t think I’ve ever accomplished that, in my years of running.
As you all know, I’m desperately trying to 1. BQ and 2. lose weight. No matter what I do, I can never get myself to move out of the same 3 pound range. I know that losing weight is not necessary for my health or wellness. Science just simply states that the less you weigh (within reason) the faster you go. In order to give myself a little jolt in the butt, I’m signing up for Dietbet that Jess over at Blonde Ponytail is hosting for the month of february.
In this game, all you have to do is lose 4% of your body weight. That’s it. The catch? You bet $25 that you will be able to complete the challenge. Everyone that is able to do so, splits the pot after the 30 days is up. Simple as that. Want to join the game that Jess started? Click me here!
, or, try to set one up with your friends. I have about 5 lbs to lose, but you have no idea how hard that is going to be.
