i just received word that the Bird Flu has hit a trailor park!!!
It was on the internet, so it must be true. Sorry Gknee, dead pink flamingoes as far as the eye can see.
Started running in the morning today. i woke up a little early, laced up the shoes and headed out for a quick 4-5 miler. i'm not as concerned with distance anymore. It's mostly the speed right now. I ran last night, after spreaing a yard of mulch, on my medium route of 6.5-7 miles. i'm really not convinced on the accuracy of the gmaps pedometer, so i figure it's an estimate. i finished the run in 58 minutes, again an estimate. Worst case scenario a 8.92 mile pace/best case 8.28, either way less than 9 minute miles. i'm thrilled.
best case this morning, i ran in 28 minutes, and there must be some problem with my calculator that's a 5.60 mile or 6.22. No friggin' way. i'll check the math and get back on this one.
On the project 190 front. i must be getting a little quicker, because as of this morning, per my bathroom scale, i weighed in at....
1... that's right the first digit is a one. wait for it.... 198 ...btw thats pounds not kilograms.
but not a digital scale and not 100% accurate but given that per the same scale in December i had hit 240, i feel amazing. i remember 2 years ago i had gotten up to about 260. EGADS!!!
Have i mentioned to anyone that i'm obsessive/compulsive? Next time i'll write about that.
thanks again for reading!!!
