Slight up-tick from last week’s 3 pound loss. Actually was below 170 most of the week to be honest, had a massive (5 pounds) uptick on Saturday morning. Not food related, but just work/stress related. Got rid of most of on Saturday, but not quite all.
I have to say, I am also going to miss ‘all-i-can-eat-sundays’ with the (temporary) end of the long runs. It was nice while it lasted.
Exercise is a bit hit or miss this week. Been doing it, but since I am not running (except for the one short race I was signed up for) I have been doing other exercises and going back to more weights. However, after 6 months of not much lifting, I definitely have lost strength. I am also trying to keep it easy on the legs to make sure I don’t re-injure the knee. Also, I miss the calorie efficiency of the runs now. When I was heavier, elliptical was pretty efficient for me. At current weights, it’s barely more efficient than the stationary (and I hate the stationary for it’s inefficiency of calorie burn). This morning I am going to try going for a swim at a local pool after going to the gym for weights.
Overall the knee is feeling OK now. The rest of the legs feel really stiff/sore. Initially, I think from overcompensating about the knee, now I think from doing exercises I haven’t done in a number of months. More on running plans tomorrow.
Now off to the gym and pool!
