Day 93


     
     Wow! The weather is so fantastic! It's amazing how the body responds to 70 degrees verses 90 degrees! I actually ran at a decent pace today. I had one 9:10 mile followed by a 9:48 mile. Keep in mind this is hilly terrain so I'm very glad. Nice 5 miler-
   Got my new shoes. I think they will work, especially if I lose the extra pounds. Today I weighed in at 183 so that's down 2 pounds.
   Seems like I'm hungry all the time. I have been increasing fluid intake, that seems to help. Hope you are well! Peace!

Day 94


             So, the scale says I've gained three pounds! I should stay off the scale!
   I know I've slimmed a bit so I will stay the course and not quit! 10 days of watching calorie intake and consistent running. It's probably all the push-ups I've been doing that's added weight.
   Today I was weak and tired as I ran but managed to eek out a 3.5 miler. I hope to get my new shoes tomorrow!! Excited! Peace!

Day 95


   Yesterday was a day of rest. Sandy and I went to a concert. We ate smart and are seeing the beginning of results!!
         I ran 5 miles today. Felt pretty good. The weather has turned cool so that makes a difference.
  My goal is to up 10% from last week so 22 would be the goal. Hope you are well! Peace!

day 97


      Monday morning drag...but the crispness of the weather gives you a significant boost! Yes, it's 70 degrees with a brisk north wind. Sunshine and a wide open road. Couldn't be better!
   I did a 5 miler with a decent pace. I am still doing well when it comes to limiting calories. One day at a time!! Peace!

day 99


     Forgot to post yesterday; felt really good! Odd how some days you feel strong and others....not so much! Today I finished out the week with an easy 3.4 miles of hot weather running. Looks like Autumn is on its way with the forecast calling for a big cool off tomorrow.
   So a 20.4 mile week. Oh! I ordered some new running shoes today! I've been running in Kayanos for years, but after my last race I noticed a lack of forefoot stability. After much research I decided to try the Brooks Ghost 8. I got 'em for 70 bucks! Any reviews? Hope all is well with you! Peace!

day 101


    So Fall has arrived. Fortunately it was still hot today! I managed an easy 3 miler. On track for 20 miles this week. I will gradually build. Hope all is well with you! Peace!

Day 102

   Funny how you bust your butt and still feel fat!? Seems this last ten pounds is going to fight like you know what to stay with me.
   So far I have done well today. Solid meals, no junk (thus far), 4 miler in the wonderful (fleeting) Summer heat, and lots of will power. Fact is if we simply focus on the current reality we can claim victory.
   I did three 100 meter (approx.) pick ups today, too. So a little speed work! Hope you are well! Peace!
