Weight I have lost

March Totals

OK, so I ran 77.93 miles in the month of March. This was 5 more than February. And with a week I took off.

Weight... according to an "unofficial" weigh-in on March 1, I was 8 more pounds than I was today. Why was it unofficial? Because March 1 wasn't on a Thursday. Otherwise, all my weigh-ins are the same.

I'll take that. So I don't know if it was the Vitamin D3 I started taking or running 20+miles a week that caused the loss. I'm thinking it was they VD3. Only because calorie wise, it isn't that off what my tri training was. Of course I'm eating less than I did during tri training. So who knows.

So today's loss was .5. I weighed and got back in bed and watched Frasier (I got a clif bar and some water too). I tried to convince myself to run 5 miles. 30 minutes later a new Frasier was on. I really didn't want to go to the gym. Somehow I convinced myself that running outside would be faster. Another 15 minutes and out I went.

The run was boring. The trashmen were the only people out. It was hot (72). I didn't want to be there. I finished the subdivision hills and started in the hood, but decided I didn't want to run a hill (Hellatious Hill). So I ran along the prison boundary for awhile. Then through the hood missing all side streets (so no Terrorist Dogs or crazy man on ATT St). I ran by German Shepherd's house twice. I got to the bottom of the last hill before my house at 4.62 miles. Ugh! So down the first hill and once around, and finally I hit 5. Slowest I've ever run 5 miles. My legs were exhausted and I was hot. So I came in and watched Las Vegas. Quality TV, right there.

Hopefully, the first run of the month is not a predictor of the rest of the month. Next up is Satuday 7 miler (a "taper" run).

Nice! 8lbs in one month? That's pretty cool too. Going to have to check out this VD3 thing...

I agree with the others - 8 lbs. gone and 78ish miles for the month are both accomplishments!

I love reading about the runs you do in the hood and surrounding areas! :)
