I did a dumb thing.
Last week, I ran through Thursday, walked Friday and didn’t run all weekend. On top of that, I eat like a king (not a good king) for the second weekend in a row.
I think it’s the summer heat that has gotten to me. That and a very busy schedule that seems to be getting busier.
The bad part of my dumb thing is that I have gained weight. More then I think I should have, but considering 2 weekends of eating frenzies, I guess I understand why. I’m not too concerned as when I get back out and run, I can loose the extra weight pretty fast. However, I really should have been more self controlled this weekend.
Saturday I was out with my family shopping this weekend and ended up in a bike shop. I had a great sales guy just try to give me some biking basics and help me price out a bike. Wow, biking is so much more expensive then running. For a basic bike and all the stuff that I’d have to buy to go with it, I was looking beyond $1,000. Fortunately my old running buddy @BigBigGeek is now an avid cyclist and he things he can get me going on an older bike my sister left to me for a lot less. I hope that works out. I’d like to add biking into my routine, but I honestly don’t want to spend $1,000 until I know I want to go that route.
Back to my weight. I did another stupid thing. I skipped my apple cider vinegar (ACV) yesterday. I was just too busy and decided mot to drink it. I paid for that today and I was back on the ACV train this morning.
About ACV, I know now that it really helps my workouts. I run in the afternoon and in the summer, it gets HOT outside. I forgot to take my ACV twice last week before my run and I was spent after 2 miles. I basically had to run/walk most of the rest of my route. Then Thursday I remembered it and had a much more consistent run. I wasn’t setting any records, but I only stopped twice. I can really tell the difference. It must have a property that I need or that helps endurance in the heat. Either way, I am still hooked on the stuff. I just wish someone could make it taste better!!!
That is about all for me for today. I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was way too short for me, but I guess that means I got a lot done!
