I Think I Like Running Weigh-In

I think I like running.

More in a sec. Let me get my weigh-in info out of the way first.

March 11, 2011
Last Week’s Weight: 356.9
Today’s Weight: 355.1
Change from All-Time High: -47.7 pounds
Change from Last Week: -1.8 pounds

What can I say but woo hoo!

So why is this an I Think I Like Running Weigh-in? I think I like it.

I can’t believe it. I’m shocked. But Tina and I have taken to doing a weight session and then a 5K. We’re in the gym longer (and therefore more exercise, which always equals good), and I think it shows in my weight loss this week. I haven’t even had the most perfect calorie counting this week (more on #7daychip, which is helping, later), but I still lost. And I am attributing this one to the drastic increase in exercise going on this week.

I’m finding that I actually ENJOY the running.

Well, real quick, let me clarify one thing.

I’m not running. I’m jogging. And I’m jogging slow. I jog at 4.1 miles per hour. I know for someone with longer legs (I may be six feet tall, but my body is crazy long and my legs are little stumps with a 32 inseam) 4.1 mph would be a fast walk, but for me, it’s a slow jog. And I’m perfectly fine with that.

I haven’t even worked up to jogging a 5K without stopping yet. I’m going at my own speed. Today, I did 1:15 of jogging at 4.1 with 1:45 of walking at 3.2 for the entire 3.1 miles. I completed it in 51:23.

I have a HUGE plan about 5Ks coming up very soon. I’ll announce it early next week.

But for today, I am celebrating my 1.8 pound loss and the fact that I am enjoying running. Yay me.
