While my progress isn’t exactly traveling at the speed of light, it is pretty satisfying for me to see that I’ve lost almost 35 lbs since this whole “blog thing” began and 58 lbs since my weight peaked out at 371! Very cool. Thanks again for all of your help and support. Your following my blog drives me more than you could ever imagine. I’m getting excited about the February race and am glad to hear some of you are training to run it with me. It will be the start of my renewed love for running. In my young stud prime I was running over 90 miles per week and I would love to be able to do it again.
I spent about 20 minutes last night trying on some of my “skinny” clothes and found that three or four shirts are now a decent fit and so are some of the pants. How cool is that?
I had a great walk/run this morning. I can feel my lungs are opening up and my stamina is coming back. In fact, I had to hold myself back just a bit because I can’t risk an injury. After another week or so, I’ll be confident enough in my body’s ability to handle the constant pounding and then I’ll push myself to the limit.
