Okay, i’m sitting in front of the TV late Saturday night. The family is snug in they’re beds as I type this. I’ve had quite a day. Went to Lake Hefner and walked 8 miles and ran a little bit too.
My official clearance does not occur until Tuesday but i’m ready to rock and roll. My back has come along ways but I do now it’s still there so i’m hoping it continues to get better. I’ll try to maintain some sort of control as I begin to run again. The walk down at Lake Hefner helped give me some perspective and motivation. Seeing other runners running inspires me.
My diet took a slight hit tonight. Valentines day may have worked against me a little bit. However, I quickly realize that i’m playing with water weight. Somehow I have to keep my jets cooled on this. I cannot lose weight every night. I’m more concerned with burning fat rather than expelling water out of my system. I can start sweating and lose two or three pounds in one running session. Anyway, as long as I eat healthy and exercise I believe that I will reduce me weight gradually.
Monday night is the awards banquet for the LandRunners. I get a reward for completing ten series races. It was a goal of mine and I have achieved it. I hope to repeat that goal this year but the possibilities seem bleak due to my injury. I have missed three series races already with the prospect of missing more.
Future…..get back in shape and make a decision as to what i’m running at the Arbuckle to Ardmore race in late March. It’s down to either a 5K or half marathon. We shall see.
