This is what I did last week
Mon: 7 forgettable miles...it was hot, I felt like I was 200 lbs..moving on.
Tue: 3 miles
Wed: 3 miles
Thu: 5 miles tempo
Sat: 3 miles
Sun: 10 good miles...rest of the day not so good.
total: 31 miles
My long run went pretty well but I had stomach problems for the rest of the day. I was not able to eat much even though I was hungry...it sucked. I was a little worried because the next day I had to go in for blood test and I needed to stop eating at 9 pm and that I would not eat breakfast until around 10 am. I envy all of you who can eat whatever you want after long runs or races!
So you know those SWAGGLE deals? Well a couple weeks ago they had one for TANITA scales and I bought one. I got this one:
It is the BC-548 Ironman Body Composition Monitor. We did not have any scale in our house and this was 50% off. It will tell you a lot of information about your body.
We can enter profiles for 4 persons in it and it will keep the datas in memory. This is pretty cool tool. I like it, Bill not so much because that thing tells the UGLY TRUTH.
Me: underfat, Him: Overfat (oopsy). He needs to exercise. He has lost some weight so that is good. The Physique rating is a number between 1 and 9, 1 being Hidden obese (High body fat and low muscle mass) and 9 is Very Muscular (Athlete). I am an 8. That is Thin and muscular; lower then normal % of fat and while having adequate muscle mass. I'll take that but I dont see the muscles! Pretty cool gadget, it is interesting to see how the numbers change from morning to bedtime. When people come over I invite them to use it to see their numbers and most of them said "NO THANKS" so far even if I say I will leave the room and give them some privacy. The ones who stepped on it knew or thought their numbers would be pretty good!
Saturday was opening season for soccer! Now both my boys are playing and that makes for busy Saturday mornings! Jonathan's game started before Will's ended and was at a different location. I had snack duty for both. I felt like I was in a race! They both won their first games! Now they are asking to "train" for their upcoming 1 mile races. Saturday we will start and see if they can run a mile. I am not sure Jonathan can, he does not know how to run slow. We will see how it goes!
