Day #3 week #7

  Well, so far my thinking has been right on target. I began my training plan at the end of October...to start with 30 minutes of ez running on the treadmill and adding a minute every run. I have run everyday but Sundays, I haven't added a minute every day, though. I do a speed session on Saturdays and one cut down run day during the week.
  My objective is to lose 14 pounds. Today I have lost 5 to date and have a weigh in Saturday where I anticipate another pound off.
   It's very difficult to lose pounds when you aren't really overweight!? Yet I still have some to go....what's great about this is my Achilles tendons have not been buggin' me...I have logged 3hrs and 6 mins already this week and I am feeling great!
  The treadmill is much much easier on the body! No doubt! I know I will eventually have to transition to the roads but the 14 lb decrease ought to make the difference.
  Today an easy conversational pace, 63 minutes 6.36.treadmill miles.
 I will be out of the loop for a few days as I get to spend time with my Sons, Daughter-in-law and Grandson! Peace!

Stick to a plan and it always works. I know that feeling of dropping weight when you are not really over weight. Enjoy the time with your family!
