Sweating the Small Stuff

Not in a bad way though.

I upped my workout this morning to gateway to 8k (podrunner intervals) week 2.  I have honestly decided that running isn’t all that it is cracked up to be for me.  I know I can do a half marathon at a 4 mile an hour pace “walking” and when I tried running (podrunner restart) I was killing me knees.  So I took up where I left off with the walk one and I’m feeling great.  My legs burn and by the half way point my bra and my hair are completly soaked… and I’m back to feeling fantastic.  46 minutes with my heart rate at (above) target.

I’m half way through my first week on the Slim Quick capsuls.

I hit 179 pounds last night

And I realize now what susan powter meant about her thighs not touching when she walked.  I didn’t understand it before becuase even when I was at 120 pounds, my thights still touched when I walked.  I finally completely understand that comment now.  I know this becuase I can walk now without my thighs rubbing.

This afternoon, I’m wearing my leggings… drinking water… my thin Mr Potato Head t-shirt feeling baggier…

I realized, today, that I’m feeling better, healthier, happier than I have in a long time… even listening to my COWorkers arguing on the conference call isn’t too terribly irritating… which is awesomely good.
