Too Many Hills

This weekend I headed out for 10 miles, but also decided to take a slightly different route.  Unfortunately I paid the price in my distance because I bit off more than I could chew in the hills.  The neighborhood I chose to run through really didn’t look that hilly, but once I got in there…ouch!  Not doing that again. 

I updated my weight chart.  After the half marathon I gained 1.4 lbs, but luckily this past week I got it back off again.  I need to lose 10 lbs in the next 12 weeks to get a refund from my company for the cost of the Weight Watchers at Work program.  12 weeks is plenty of time!

    Katie — I always seem to gain after major events, too, but then it comes off right away. Just one pound a week. You can lose those 10!

    I see you added the Columbia Metric to your training schedule — are you definitely doing it? If the Balto Relay goes okay, I’m in for the Metric.

    I’m playing it by ear for the Columbia Metric. I think it will be perfect for my training so I am really looking forward to it, but I want to make sure my training is still on track as I get closer to it before I declare it as a definite race for me.

    I always tend to schedule vacations right around running events, so that doesn’t help my event weight gain at all, lol.

    One nice thing, too, about Columbia is that it’s cheap. Only $25 until 2 days before. Even if I decide to do it, I’ll wait till the last minute to register in case of injury.
