April 23rd, 2013 (Tuesday)

231.5 when I woke up and 231.5 after my evening run.

Was 230.5 yesterday morning.

Run tonight was good – 5 miles in 42:10 with about 4 minutes of walking and most of the rest at 7.5.  I felt a bit tired and sluggish but I pushed through with a decent time and little to no cheating on the treadmill.

This week I have a total of 50 miles to run – so 10% down so far.  Its going to be a pretty tough week but at least the current forecast shows it being warm enough to run outside on Saturday and Sunday so that should be good.  The longer runs always feel better outside (well, unless it is cold enough to cause bits of your face or extremities to fall off).

My weight still hasn’t recovered from the weekend trip but I should be able to get things back under 230 tomorrow or Thursday hopefully and then the long runs on the weekend plus some yard work that will need to be done should help drive me to a new low.  Basically I have allowed Coke the last 5 days but I will be pulling it from my diet again until Sunday (I want to be able to use it as a fast glucose hit while running the 20 miler on Sunday).  Then I will go back off it for a few weeks until my next big 20 miler is planned.  I still have hope that I can get to near the 210 mark by the time the Manitoba Marathon rolls around.
