Okay okay. Maybe I’m getting a little carried away. I put in a quick and easy 3 miles last night. I concentrated on this week’s proprioceptive cue – navel to spine – engaging the lower abs to stabilize my hips. Short story even shorter – I looked at my Garmin at the turnaround point – 8:43 pace. And I hadn’t even really broken a sweat yet. I took it easy on the way back (and into the wind – doh!) and managed a 9:06 average over the three miles at 75% of max heart rate.
Now for the bad news. It’s Friday. Up on the scale. Total weight 224 (up one pound – gah!). 28.5% body fat (down from 29.2%), which means:
162.4 pounds of pulsing muscle
61.6 pounds sinking the ship
I have GOT TO get more diligent with tracking. Starting today folks. Yup. Starting today…..
