Today I ran 3 miles in 25:46, my fastest time yet. That averages out to just over 8 1/2 min. miles. There is no way I could have held that pace for much longer, but it was nice to know I'm getting faster and stronger. Also, I noticed my heart rate dropped nearly 40 bpm within 2 minutes of finishing my run, which I'm told is great. Last Saturday I ran 6 miles without stopping in 58:06, the first time I've ever done that (ran 6 and no stopping.) I feel great. Salt Lake City Half Marathon here I come!!! 93 days and counting...
I sold some stuff on eBay so I could make a little cash to buy some more clothes. I took the kids to Park City on Tuesday and we spent over 4 hours there at the Outlet stores. I found 3 sweaters, puff vest, a couple dressy shirts, and a pair of pants. The kids did great and I felt like the trip was a major success. I actually like buying new clothes now... probably a little too much Jake would say. ;)
The best news of all... I hit my original goal to lose 30 lbs. last week. I'm in the 130s now. WOO HOO! Only a couple more lbs. now until 130 and then I'll post full body shots. I know you're all dying to see them, but you will just have to be patient. ;)
