Well, I thought I had 7.4 pounds to goal, but it is really 8.4 pounds until goal. I checked the time I posted, and it was post-coffee, so I really have no excuse for the poor addition/subtraction problem. Oh well, what is 1 pound after I lost 100+? … Well, I guess it is 1%, which is really not that much 🙂
Ran slow today, I did a new route again, not the one with the big hill! I finished in 34:55, which is almost 2 minutes slower than my last time. I felt like I was going fast, but apparently not. It was very cold this morning, in the 40s, so maybe that had something to do with it. My first experience running for a longer period on concrete with all the new sidewalks in town, and not sure I liked it. My legs were also a bit sore from yesterday’s workout. Being a new runner, I am still learning all kinds of new things about how my body responds to temperatures, surfaces and times of day.
I’ve been poking around looking for some more runs this fall. I have one scheduled for the 21st of this month, and DH and I will be doing one in October (although he is walking the 5K, not running it).
And just for gratuitous cuteness, here is my 18-year-old kitty napping away. She looks so peaceful, and it makes me want to nap!
