On the plus side, I was at 155 this morning, after 157 last week.
I took off both Monday and yesterday—no exercise at all. I’ve been pushing really hard, and thought I’d take a real recovery.
This morning, I ran the fastest 14-minute mile you’ve ever seen! I forgot my heart rate monitor, so I can’t confirm this, but certainly I got my heart pumping. I guess I’ll just never be speedy, but I certainly have improved my conditioning, and that’s what counts. I’ll go back to going hard tomorrow, but feel like I’ll benefit from this little training vacation.
I did buy a box of coconut macaroons on the way home. I have not opened them. I may not open them. I’m going to live with them in the house for a day and see how that goes. I’d like to have one tomorrow. I got them because I have a meeting in a few hours that is stressing me out, but once I realized that, I found the power not to actually eat one.
