Weight I have lost

No Title

So yesterday, I had 5 miles on tap. I was trying to convince myself to get up and run. Except I felt like I was going to vomit. Maybe replacing a Clif Bar with Pop Tarts wasn't the best idea. Enough excuses! Off to gym.

I walked the .3 miles. Then I started running. Immediately, I thought I would puke. So I lowered the mphs. 3 minutes later, I tried again. I was going to faint. Back to lowering the mphs. Intense sweat dripping in my eyes. Walking at 3mph, I tried to figure out what to do. OK, I'll walk 2 miles. At 2 miles, I decided to walk another. I tried running at 4mph. I lasted 5 minutes. Back to 3mph. With 28 minutes left, I tried some more. I got 4 mph for 5 minutes and upped to 4.2 and 4.3. Finally I was finished. I was tired, sweaty and cold. A quick run to the store to get D some soda, and some green beans, and home I came.

I took a 3 hour nap. D asked me about dinner. I thought I would hurl. I took a Benadryl and slept 12 hours.

This morning I woke up feeling a lot better. Clif Bar and off to the gym for 3 miles. I did my start at 4.5mph and increase every 5 minutes. I got through 4.9mph and was very tired. I did another minute on 4.9 and took it down to 4.5 and 4.6 the rest of the time. Not what I wanted but oh well. My legs felt like they were going to give out if I kept going at 4.9mph.

So this week's Aldi's savings was $13.85. 4 weeks is $28.50. I think it was because I had to buy 4 pounds of ground beef. 90-10 is $2.99/lb whereas Kroger is $4.19/lb.

some days running is just not in the cards.

Getting sick?

Sounds like you have an off day, but I do admire you for getting out there!
