If you want to do it, all you have to do is do it!

A few more pictures from yesterdays race. I always enjoy the GSR but this year especially so. My legs felt very stiff for the first few miles, but by mile 6 I just wanted to run faster and faster! Only, I was foiled by people in my way. I started at the back of the white wave because I didn’t want a repeat of last weeks overtaking ‘fest’, I’d have been better near the front of the white wave. The run felt short, I felt strong and I am full of enthusiasm for marathon training.

I’ve decided that I am done with the scales. They just depress me. I am also done with Weight Watchers. Tracking just feels like a chore and it isn’t normal. Most everyone else manages to eat sensibly and stay in shape and I bet many of those are not as fit as I am right now (I am heavier than the last time I ran 10 miles and I still got a similar time). If I strive for eating like a normal person plus add in the marathon training then this weight will come off. I feel fit, I feel healthy, I just want my old clothes to fit and to get some more confidence back.

So currently hydrating and eyeing up the fruit on my desk.

In contradictory news I am short tempered, feel a bit meh and generally am already done with today. Listening to Tool is getting me through. No cause for alarm, I think its post run blues and missing Amy like crazy!

  7. tri-me said: Congrats on the race! I do agree in part about WW. I’ve stopped my monthly sub to WW ($42/month!) and am now using MyFitnessPal (free) - iPhone app, desktop link, *and* barcode scanning, which I *love*. Tracking helps me (mostly) say no to junk food
