this isn't the way this is supposed to work...
OK, I've completed week two in my yearlong running assignment...and according to the scale, I managed to gain back the two pounds that I lost during the first week. I've never had the best of luck with weight control...I'm one of those people who can walk by a bakery and put weight on, but this is the first time that I've heard of someone gaining weight while running 4 or 5 days a week. Maybe it's sexy muscle on my legs.
The good news is that I found a training plan that seems quite realistic. I've been getting a lot of conflicting advice on running, as well as some that seems questionable--including training seven days a week and taking lot of supplements (eating that highly-processed, chemical-laden stuff just doesn't seem all that healthy to me). Finding a definitive training plan that's designed for a novice AND takes into account that some people just can't work out seven days a week, 365 days a year, has been a relief. As I'm entirely new to this, any advice is welcomed.
So here's the numbers for the week:
Days Running: fifteen
Peak Weight: 222 lbs./100.7 kg
Current Weight: 222 lbs./100.7 kg
Miles This Week: five and 9/10
Total Miles: thirteen and 1/10
