Today is the last day of my diet / recovery. I plan on running tomorrow for the first time in two weeks. It has been hard not running, but I know I feel a lot better for taking some time off. Also, I am down to 179 for the first time since I can ever remember. For those who don’t know, at the height of my weight gain, I was 278 in July 2011, so I have lost 99 lbs so far. Wow, a year and a half ago I would never have thought I’d loose so much and have run a half marathon!
I am a bit hesitant about running again since I have had almost no carbs of fat in 14 days. I’ll take it slow to begin with and see how I feel. I hope that loosing so much weight will make a big difference, especially in my aches and pains.
I can’t wait to love running again.
Enjoy your run tomorrow and congratulations on achieving your diet targets.
Thanks, and congrats again on your run. Amazing what we can do when we push ourselves. Very impressive.
