I must be ill. Two days. 5 miles each day. This hasn’t happened since at least 2011.
Actually, the weather is changing here is Southern California with a cold winter storm forecast to appear on Monday or Tuesday, so I thought I would take advantage of the final day of good weather for a few. I felt good after Saturday’s loop in Buck Gully, so I decided I would give the trails another go. I wanted to avoid the extended climb out of Buck Gully, so I opted for Bommer Ridge in Laguna Coast Wilderness. Bommer would be about half the elevation gain/loss, but still give me the opportunity to get my trail shoes dirty.
Even though it was 15 degrees cooler than the day before, it was still a gorgeous day:
When all was said and done, another five miles (at a pace slightly faster than Saturday’s) was in the books, and my face had a little more tan that it did in the morning.
For the week:
- Planned miles: 12
- Actual miles: 18.2
Upcoming week’s plan:
- Monday: Scheduled rest
- Tuesday: 2 miles
- Wednesday: 3 miles
- Thursday: Schedule rest
- Friday: 2 miles
- Saturday: 5 miles
- Sunday: 2 miles
- Total planned: 14
On the calorie front:
- Total weekly deficit/(surplus): (199)
- Sunday weigh in: 258 (0 lost)
a little discouraging. I have throttled the calorie intake back and increased exercise volume and I still lose exactly zero last week. I’m going to be patient for another couple of weeks, but if I’m going to lose zero regardless how much I eat as long as I exercise, then I might as well eat!
Actually, I think the increased exercise level will do a lot in the near future. My paces are starting to pick up, so it’s not like I’m depressed on a two mile walk/jog of the neighborhood anymore. Nose to the grindstone!
