141 day run streak…progress

I wasn’t able to make my team run today. The workout was 35 minutes out and 35 minutes back at a smooth relaxed pace. I wasn’t going to skip so I enlisted the services of one of my other running partners.

Jasper seems to have no issue with long distances or holding a 9:30ish average…as long as I promise he’ll see squirrels. This was his first long run of the year and he did very well. I felt great and could have gone longer or faster, but didn’t as I’m really trying to stick to the half fast program.

I’m working hard to watch when I’m eating by limiting snacking and eating better. Robeks has become a go to for me for lunch…lots of great smoothie choices loaded with fruits and veggies. Yes, I said veggies…me I know. You can hide anything in a smoothie…it’s true. I’m still on track for dropping below the 200 lb mark before my first half of the year.

128 day run streak…and more

I got after it today. Woke up and got out the door on the Beargrease (fatbike). I found out today that snow is softer than pavement…I always knew that, but never really rode in snow before the past few months. I bailed a few miles in to the trail and laid there a few moments laughing as falling didn’t hurt…until the cold set in. It’s fun getting in winter miles preparing for the road bike season.

Of course I had to get in a few miles on running rest day. Jumped on the treadmill and logged an easy two. Followed that up by rounding out the morning workout with 25 minutes of HIIT keeping the heat rate at a 140 bpm average.

I’m focused on dropping 15-20 lbs to work on getting faster and hopefully finally break that 2 hour half marathon goal. Going to get back in to my routine that helped me drop 70 lbs and post my weight. My hope is that post it that it will keep me honest and motivated. I’m down 4 lbs since I started counting again…I’ll take it.

Decide to dominate!
