I’m paying people to make me run?
So I did this really silly thing a couple of months ago and signed up to run a ten K at the end of July.
It’s called the Wharf to Wharf and it is a run that goes from Santa Cruz to Capitola. Six miles along the beach with 40 bands playing along the way. Rob has run it twice. This year will be his second year as one of the “bands”.
So I have another two months or so to get my butt in gear. I have started to do walk/runs at work…very short duration on the running part and I think I might be able to pull this off.
Yesterday Paula and I finished a five K walk in 53 minutes. That is about 13 minutes less than the last one we did together so all this walking I’ve been doing on my lunch hours have been paying off I think. Not to mention that I feel better and look better even if I haven’t lost a terrific amount of weight from it.
My size 20’s are getting loose and my 22’s are falling off me. I keep them around for the bloated days of the month but even then they have to be secured with a tight belt. 🙂 It’s a good feeling.
Diet has mostly just been low calorie/low fat. Except on the weekends…I’ve still yet to be able to curb that on the weekends.
