Holy freakin' cow, I officially lost 50 lbs!!
I knew I needed to bust out a KILLER week in order to hit this milestone. I'm due to get my period this week, which usually makes it a little tougher to get a big loss. So with my half marathon training plan on my fridge, I nailed all 5 runs last week.
Confession: I've been struggling to run my entire runs lately. As in, I've been taking walking breaks on basically every run. I think it's a mental block since switching from Map My Run (which had me consistently running 9:30 paces or faster) over to RunKeeper. RunKeeper is a truer gauge of distance (meaning that I'm now running slightly farther to hit the same "distances" MMR was reporting), so I knew I needed to make the change or risk under-training for the half. Either way, I had a pretty amazing 4-mile run this morning at a 9:59 pace with no walk breaks, so I'm really excited about that!
So last week I got in all 5 training runs (total distance: 16 miles) plus 3 strength workouts in my apartment. I also did a ton of walking around the city on Saturday, going to my friend's apartment, the farmer's market, and back. I don't track my walking for activity points unless I get over 60 minutes a day, because I live in a city so I tend to walk a decent amount just to get around. I hit a record number of activity points this week:
Overall, I'm absolutely thrilled with my progress, and can't wait to see how much I can push myself as I barrel towards my goal (150 lbs). Stay turned for a post later this week on what I've learned in 50 lbs lost :)
How did you do this weigh-in Wednesday?
