In an effort to keep up with the goals stated in last week's post, I present a new Sparkly Runner series- "Accountability Monday"- a quick recap of the last week with regard to Goofy Challenge training, nutrition, and weight-loss.
12.8 miles this week.
Three workouts- 3.7 humid, gross miles on Wednesday, 5k on Friday, 10k on Saturday.
No long runs yet so no new experiments with food.
Finished the holiday weekend with 9 Weekly Points remaining which is pretty damn awesome. (If you're unfamiliar with how the Weight Watchers method works, you can find out more here.)
163 pounds as of 7/2/14 weigh-in.
-2.2 from last week.
-27.4 since January 2013.
-39 since heaviest: 202 in 2005.
Overall, it was a great week. The races were super fun and I managed to negative split the 10k- which is a goal I've been working on for what feels like forever! The weather has also been pretty cooperative and strangely cool these last few days- low humidity and temps in the mid-70's. However, it's supposed to creep back up into the 90's this week so that may affect my running and force me onto the dreadmill- yuck!
QOTD: How was your holiday weekend?
I need more accountability! My holiday weekend was awesome--but totally off-track for my goals. Good luck on your training for Goofy. Keep it consistent and you'll have an awesome race!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Holiday weekends can be rough- luckily it's a brand new week! :-)Delete
Great job Sarah! The summer runs are so tough with the heat and humidity. I am seriously struggling! I enjoyed a break over the holiday in the mountains of Va. A break from the heat and runnig was pretty great! ;)ReplyDelete
Sometimes a little break is all you need! Glad you enjoyed it!Delete
Awesome job having points left after the holiday weekend.ReplyDelete
Do you spend you weekly or activity points first?
I spend my APs first- I try to earn at least 30 a week. I like food. A lot. :-)Delete
Love the idea of Accountability Monday! This is great. Congrats on having points left over – that's an accomplishment on a normal weekend, and an even bigger one for a holiday! Congrats on your weight loss, you are doing wonderful :)ReplyDelete
Thank you!! I was pretty shocked that I had any left over! :-)Delete
