229.5 when woke up this morning and 228 after run this evening.
Run tonight was 10 miles in 83:45 – I did 11 minute cycles – 1 min walk and 10 minutes at 7.5 mph. This seemed to work pretty well and I felt pretty good through the whole period but was starting to wear down near the end.
Back below 230 again – still recovering from the weekend road trip but hopefully I can still make progress this week and be closer to 222 or so by Friday May 3rd. This would be a nice little bit of weight loss going into the Winnipeg Police Service Half Marathon.
So far the weather forecast for the weekend makes me believe that I should be able to do my 10 and 20 mile runs this weekend outside. That would be a nice change and would help me see where I stand for the following weekend’s race. I would love to be close to the 1:50 / 1:55 mark for the WPS but anything under 2 hours would be a major improvement over where I have been for several years. But well under 2 hours would be a major confidence booster with the Manitoba Marathon following 6 weeks later.
