Day 72

       So I am feeling like I'm not losing any weight. I have been diligent in watching and abstaining from wantless calories.
    Today I slogged 3.1 miles. Felling fat....but not going to quit! Peace!

Day 73

            Took yesterday off....last day of Indian Summer, too. It has cooled some, and that's not a bad thing! I enjoyed a 6 miler today. Did it in 63 minutes so I'm happy about that....I'm up to 18 miles this week with needing only 7 more!
    That's good because I'm officiating a wedding this weekend and my Sisters husband is in critical condition at the Hospital.
   So, I hope all is well with you! Peace!

Day 75

     So I had to retire a pair of running shoes after yesterdays run. I got every bit I could out of them....there's nothing left for them to give. So, I will hand them down to knock arounds or wading shoes.
   I do hope to get another pair of Kayanos though. Still can't beat that shoe! I do like the Brooks Ghost 8 that I got. They seem to serve well for short runs but fatigue the feet on longer jaunts.
   I couldn't resist the Indian Summer temps today and ran a 4 miler. I am feeling pretty good....!
 Hope all is well with you! Peace!

Day 76

     Well I had a little bit of a slip in training. We had our grandchildren over the weekend...well that is a sort of training! I mean I was exhausted yesterday! Only had to skip one run but I was chasing a 5 and 2 year old for 2 days! I sure miss those kids, though!
   It is Indian Summer here. The temps are 80ish, breezy, trees changing color, leaves falling....beautiful harvest moon, too.
   I ran 8 miles as I'm getting back on track. The goal is to reach 25 miles this week and increase my long run on Mondays. So I am off to a good start!
   Hope all is well with you! Peace!

Day 79

      I ran 5 miles on the treadmill yesterday. I didn't feel like fighting the drizzle, wind, and cool temps so I stayed warm.
     The day before I rested and today I will not run but I hope tomorrow will finish my cut down week.
   So far the body is holding up and the mind is not burned out. I will ramp up a bit next week shooting for 25 miles total. Hope you are well! Peace!

Day 82

           Usually I take Tuesday off but I have to be out of pocket Friday and Saturday so I need to get my miles ez 3 miler with some hill reps thrown in for good measure. 80 degrees today! Hope you are well! Peace

Day 83

     So yesterday at church someone asked if I was losing weight. They said my face was slimming down. Well isn't it funny that the weight comes off the face before the waist?
   I barely notice any difference in girth but something must be happening. I'm waking up hungry!
  Today was an absolutely perfect running day! 60ish, breezy from the south, and partly sunny. I took it easy as Mondays are always a difficult day for a Pastor.
   7 miles in the books....feelin' fine! Hope all is well with you! Peace!!
