Weight I have lost

You checked and saw no update, yesterday

So naturally you assumed I didn't run. Ha! You are wrong. I made dinner. This cooking thing is for the birds. Then I watched Law and Order: Criminal Intent. That ended at 7:30 (dinner ended at 7:15). I decided I would watch half of Special Victims, and wouldn't you know it, they put one on that I had not seen.

So at 8:15 I found my running clothes. I finished watched SVU, and then went to the gym, since it was going to be too dark to run in my hood, or at the track. Even with Guinness.

I got there, and walked .2 miles on the treadmill. I had to laugh because my friend was telling me about Workout on Bravo, and I said it is on too late, plus the lady looks like a bitch. Guess what was on. But I didn't watch it (I look down when I run, so TV is never a distraction on the treadmill).

So I started at 4.2 on my run. Moved up to 4.3. At 10 minutes I moved it to 4.6. All this at a Level 0 incline. At 13:50 I finished the first mile. I told myself to run at this pace until 20 minutes. Around 20 minutes, the Level 2 incline kicked in. I said, "Oh run until 25 minutes." I was past 2 miles at 26:50 and around a level 3.5 incline. It went back down to level 2. Still on 4.6. At 30 minutes, I started having trouble breathing so I took it down to 3.5 mph and walked. I told myself I was done. Then I "mentally" kicked myself in the forehead and said, "No, walk until 32 minutes, and then start back up." So I started back at 32 minutes, and ramped up to 4.4 mph. I hit 3 miles in the 41 minute range. I kicked it up to 4.7 and crossed 3.1 at 42:24.
Then I walked .8 miles.

Great job getting that run in, Alb!

I'm with Viv. Once it gets that late, I'm in my PJ's.

Great job!! I too am impressed with your resolve to get that run in. I do the mental pep talks too..."Just get to the fire hydrant...okay now to the light pole...now to the red car..." Funny how you can psych yourself into it!
