|Me, right about now|
What gets me the most is that I have actually increased my mileage quite significantly and yet I am still either gaining weight or staying static without changing any of my eating habits. Intellectually I realize that losing a few pounds is the easiest way to improve my times and to make running that much easier but it is always an area that I have been lazy with. It's easy to bang out a bunch of runs during the week but not snacking on something while I feed the kids, well that just wears on you after awhile.
With three weeks left until Hyannis I have finally decided to make a concerted effort to shed some pounds and get at least near racing weight, although that weight is a long way off. A little willpower, a lot of running, and avoiding Girl Scout cookies (damn you and your sugary goodness!) and I think I can feel a bit better about myself come Feb 27th. Then it is a simple matter of continuing the good habits and transitioning that weight loss in to wins! Or at least a PR or two.
|Apparently this is what 145lbs looks like. Only 20 more to drop!|
Alright, enough bitching, all this talk has made me hungry. Off to eat some carrot sticks. Yeah...
