Chugging along nicely

For the first time in many weeks, I am feeling a bit fatigued this morning.  It probably should come as no surprise as I have been working out a lot.

Split session running yesterday:

4 miles easy along Buffalo Bayou in the morning before work with Kathleen, who is well into her Boston Marathon training cycle.  She will be doing her first 'long' long run this Sunday - 16 miles.

Three X 1-mile repeats at the middle school track after work, plus 1 mile warm-up and 1 mile warm-down, and 1 mile between intervals = total of 7 miles. So grand total of 11 miles for the day. Not too shabby.  Plantar fasciitis seemingly under control, the Superfeet inserts appear to be working.

Also a pretty intensive 50-minute workout with Frank at Fast Results Fitness; worked the shoulders, arms, back and core.  

Coming up:  5k on Sunday morning. 

100 Days of Weight Loss - Day 32:
How full are you really?  Try to gauge it on a 4-point scale:
0 = neither hungry nor full
1:  slightly full
2:  overly full, ate a little bit too much
3:  Totally stuffed like after a Thanksgiving Meal.

Aim to reach a '1' after any meal; discard the rest of the food.

Weight this morning: 171
Body fat percentage: 21%
Total miles week to date: 17
Total miles month to date:  126

Hey, thanks for the 100 Days of Weight Loss tips. Very good stuff. Seems you are a running robot of late. Glad your PF is under control with the help of the inserts. I enjoy reading your blog, so keep it up like your running. Best wishes to Kathleen in her training.

Find the best abdominal exercises for you, with emphasis on the lower abs workouts. Then stick to it! Combined with a healthy diet you should see some results after six weeks.
