Progress Picture

Since I've been up & down with the same 20 or so pounds the past couple years, I don't see any difference between then and now. I found some pictures I took after a workout on my phone from last year when I was about 190, so I thought I'd compare with this morning. I love seeing the side shots! I'm especially thrilled with my arms.
In other news, I ran my first double-digit run ever this morning! I'd planned on running 11 miles, but I ran out of water toward the end and I ended up getting sick and woozy. I hit the wall HARD around 8.5 miles, and it was all I could do to get to 10. I walked a lot of that 1.5 miles. I definitely learned my lesson, and just ordered a pair of add-on bottles for my iFitness belt. I walked 1.25 miles back to the car, and felt horrible. I was so worried I was going to puke or pass out on the way to the car! Thankfully, Damon happened to have $2 in his console, so I was able to grab a Powerade from the gas station on the way home from the trail.

  2. Thank you! Stick with it and you'll get there. Are you doing the C25K? You'll be amazed at how quickly you go from running one mile to 3! I typically run 3-5 miles at a time, but I'm training for a half marathon next month.

  4. Thanks, Brittany! This is the plan I'm following, but I did change it up some. I just blogged about it so if the link doesn't work, you can click it in the latest post and it should work from there. Good luck on your training! http://www.fitsugar.com/Half-Marathon-Training-Schedule-Beginners-2845222
