This is actually from August. I didn’t go anywhere landscapey today.
I did run, though:
I went to the neighborhood with the hills that killed me in the summer. The one where my pace was over 10:00/mi for less that 4 mi. It was actually pretty warm (mid-70s) by the time I got out there so it wasn’t really any cooler, just less humid.
The first 3 miles were hilly, and the last 2 were pretty flat:
It felt pretty awesome to defeat those hills today, especially on little sleep.
Fit Teacher GOIO 7/25. I just realized that to make the goal and qualify, I have to do some kind of workout every day the rest of the month.
Oh, anyone else’s pace chart always crazy like mine?
Pretty much sums up my weekend.
That and children and food.
If you sent me a message between Friday afternoon & now, I’ll get to it tomorrow.
With everything about our breakouts, I’ve yet to post about any of the lovely things from our hike like the tiny, brown butterfly that posed so nicely for me or these intertwined trees.
I’ll do a full post eventually.
Walking with my 30 lb pack is almost the equivalent of walking with the weight I used to carry. I don’t know how I did it, especially since I wasn’t always heavy.
When I mentioned that, Jeremy told me how proud he was that I’ve kept the weight off. Another time, when we were talking about camp, I mentioned how when I first got home and he hugged me, he asked, “Did you get smaller on me?” I didn’t- I the next day, I discovered I was actually exactly the same as the last time I measured myself. I told him that, and that I was surprised because I ate so much at camp that I was sure I would gain. I said that I would be worrying that he would think I had been eating too much if he had been there. He told me that he wouldn’t worry at all because I do so well with moderation and balancing out the times I do eat more that he completely trusts me with food. (Sadly, I don’t always deserve that trust.)
So what I started out typing as two supportive comments Jeremy made while hiking turned into another post highlighting how obsessed with food & weight I still am and how it seems to come into everything. I just want to live my life.
We’re back and all cleaned up!
I’m estimating about 11 miles total last night & today.
There was this fallen tree with huge roots!
About 4.5 mi. hiked today. Now I’m going for a run because I don’t know how long this extreme motivation will last.
One of the photos from our hiking/camping time.
I’m basically wearing the most unflattering clothing combination ever. It looks like I’ve gained 10 more pounds (and I thought I did after seeing the pictures), but I haven’t.
Those fleece pants (almost) kept my legs warm Friday night.
