Day 20

I did 31:02 for 1.86 miles:

1 minute @ 3 mph
4 minutes @ 3.5 mph
3 minutes @ 4.2 mph
90 seconds @ 3.5 mph
5 minutes @ 4.1 mph
2 minutes 30 seconds @ 3.5 mph
3 minutes @ 4.1 mph
3 minutes 30 seconds @ 3.5 mph
3 minutes @ 4.1 mph
2 minutes @ 3.3 mph
1 minute @ 3 - 2.5 mph
1 minute @ 2 - 1.5 mph
1 minute @ 1.5 mph

This was a very tough one for me. I received a great email from a very nice woman named Pam from a Yahoo group that I belong to and I decided to slow down on the mph for my runs and was raring to go. Problem is, I made the mistake of weighing myself afterward on the Wii Balance Board before my work out so I could accurately record that number while creating my personal profile on My Fitness Coach and found that I had managed to gain 3 pounds. I was devastated....I cannot even begin to tell you how much...

Added later in the afternoon: I did feel yucky last night and didn't sleep very well so I had 4 cups of coffee with nonfat milk and Stevia, 1 banana and breakfast bar then another banana and a piece of flax bread shortly before weighing myself so that might have had something to do with my weight...who's just frustrating to work out 6 days a week for 3 weeks for 30 minutes each day to have only lost a total of 1 pound as I started at 158, you know?

Added later in the afternoon: My husband is trying to convince me that it is muscle weight which I know to be hogwash, but sweet for him to say nonetheless! He tells me that I look like I have lost weight and I did the belly pat and it does not jiggle as much as it did before I started so that is something, right?

Back to original post:

Then I started my workout, bummed, and did the first 3 minutes at 4.2 mph, did OK, then did the 5 minutes at 4.1, still OK my heart rate was a bit high, then did the second 3 minutes and it was very difficult. Not to mention that my heart rate was at 170! So after the 3 minutes, I decided to walk more and only do another 3 minutes at 4.1. When I was cooling down from that with the 3.5 mph walk, I thought for sure that I was going to pass out. Not a good feeling!

I also found that I pulled the IT Band again in my right leg so after I stretched, I decided to do 15 minutes of Yoga on My Fitness Coach and found that I am having problems doing some of the moves, but I did it!

I decided to shower first then record this or this log would have been filled with a lot of Woe Is Mes! Sigh...tomorrow is another day!
