I've got a pretty good 2011 in 2011 streak going right now. I ran 14 days in a row, took Friday off, and today is day two of what I hope will be 10 day streak. After that I'm off to Fiji for the rest of the month and my running schedule will probably go to hell like it always seem to when I'm traveling.
I'm determined to finish the year off strong. After a week of plodding through my 5.3 mile course, I kicked it up a notch and started running 6.7 every day. I even ran 8.1 miles one day. Inspiration has taken a toll on my body, though. Getting up each morning gets harder with each consecutive run. And I think being tired has been giving me mood swings. Or maybe that's just the commute into the office each day.
It has been about four years since I exercised regularly enough to make my body hurt every day. The last time was with Ziggy on Saipan, training for the soccer games against Guam. It feels good.
I can literally feel the change in me. I may have only lost one pound or two in the last couple of weeks, but I can feel a difference in my balance. I didn't notice it when I put on the weight. It is not like I have a spring in my step, or that my balance is off, it just feels like it changed.
I still can't get below the 200 lbs plateau though. Maybe by the end of the year...
