Guys, guys. GUESS WHAT MY WEIGHT WAS TODAY?!?!?! 227.3. 227.3!!! I haven’t been below 230 even when I regained momentum after the first time I gained all the weight.
Sooo good! I am a mere 7lbs away from what I was at when I entered college. (and am a LOT more fit). And 27 away from my goal weight.
See what running long distances does to me? I become a fat burning machineeeee. I feel so good.
I did 6 miles today. I was going to run at lunch, but it was pouring.
I’m always hesitant to wait til after work to do runs, because I’m that person who is exhausted after a hard days work and will use it as an excuse. But, this time, I figured since it looked like the next picture (which was supposed to show up sunnier than it was) I could get in a quick run between storms and I was home early anyway. My aim was four, so I stopped at the park on my way home that’s next to the Charles River.
I started my run and felt REALLY good. Like, REALLY good, but I was indecisive on where to go (new areas will do that to me) and because of the weather. So, I stopped and turned around at a point, the came back to a bridge. I decided to go for it, cross it, and find the next bridge to cross back. This stretched me, and I ended up outside my comfort zone which generally slows me down (counterintuitive, I know). Anyway, after what seemed like eternity, I found the next bridge. By the time I came back to my car, I was like “well, I’m feeling good, and I don’t think I hear rumbling thunder anymore, so lets go back to the bridge and come back”. Of course I get to the bridge, still feel really good, and decide to go down the path again. This time, I took the wooded trail (note: not sidewalk. We’re talking rocks and things) adjacent to the river. It would be really really fun if I wasn’t so nervous about slipping in mud, getting stuck in a puddle, or getting abducted (ok that last one was the devil getting to me). Here’s the blurry picture of that.
I made it back with .25 miles to go to 10k. So I ran to the end of the parking lot then back to my car. I did it HARD. I had so much energy still! By the time I finish 6.12, it started REALLY down pouring. This is me wet, although not obvious.
And yes, that says “Engineers = Integral of e to the xy”. It’s normally a lighter dark blue… So I called it a day. I told BAA that I would finish in 1:15:00. Today was 1:09:50. Eeaaaasssiiiilllyyy beatable.
So if you switch this next picture with the first picture, that’s what I meant to show as the seemingly sunny break in the storms. That first picture is actually in the middle of ran on the bridge so you can see the drops.
So I submitted this to Rewarder.Com, it’s a website which pays you to help people with things. Anything. It’s a really cool website. Anyway, this guy asked what I’d do with him right now if he came to my neighborhood and what 5 places I visit the most. So I wrote about Boston, obviously, and sent him this picture. It’s pretty awesome, if I do say so myself.
