I am sooooooooo tired today.
The combination of running last night plus my wife's plane being delayed until 1:00 a.m. has just wiped me right out.
I'll either take a day off tonday or do weights.

Weighed in this morning at 231
I've lost 15 LBS so far with 2 and a half weeks to go!

:D

I decided to do a dumbell workout last night.
3x18 curls, shoulder press, bench, shrugs
2x12 tricep kickbacks
3x15 incline pushups

Did a few sets of crunches this morning.

Looking forward to a run tonight.

I haven't been on the bike for a while. I'll probably start riding to work again as soon as I catch up on my sleep. (I've been up late for the last week)

I'm a happy guy this morning!!!! :D
Had an awesome run last night. I decided to test out the speed and aI absolutely destroyed my previous times on my route!!!
I was shocked at how much faster I went!

I completed my route in 29:07 versus my usual 35-36 minutes.
The best thing is... I think I could have gone faster!

I finished off with a slothlike 6 minutes to get me to my 35 minute desired time.

Very busy weekend but I got a couple runs in of 31 & 32 minutes.
I rode my bike in to work today which felt real good.
Treated myself to a small bowl of soy ice cream last night (my Father's day gift to myself)... don't even feel THAT guilty.........

It was a lot of fun running this weekend. On Saturday I ran with my son and on Sunday with my daughter. It was so great to share a run together and just talk about "stuff". It was probably a little less intensity than I would have normally done but who cares!

My next weigh-in is Wednesday. I have an overwhelming urge to weigh myself this morning for some reason.

11 days until the final weigh-in!

Decided to take it easy last night. I was feeling pretty tired and sore.
Funny, I was feeling this strange muscle pain in my upper body and I couldn't figure out why as I haven't hit the weights since Friday.
Then it dawned upon me that I was playing the Wii system for a couple hours on the weekend. :oops:

Buddy, I'm the DDR master! :D Well at least compared to my friends. I've never played against any kids, who are often apparently quite good.

Yeah, kids are just crazy at that game! Have you ever seen them playing at the movie theatre?? :shock:

Yes, it appears as though we may need a support group for our dorky ways.....

Nasty nasty run last night.
I started out very strong and was just hammering it out, well on my way to a personal best time and then at about 15 minutes, I started experiencing shooting pains across my back (just under the rib cage) I ran through the first couple but stopped when they continued. I walked for 5 minutes and then finished up with a slow 15 minutes with no recurrence.
Strange!!! I've never had that happen before. Sounds like my body telling me to lay off a bit.

Rode the bike to work today which felt great!

I should be doing my weekly weigh-in sometime this morning.
