Good day Blog Readers! I'm happy to say that week 10 went a hell of a lot better than week 9. Work is still very busy, but I like it that way. It keeps me busy, and it makes the day past quickly.
This week resulted in my fastest 3K walk-run. I'm made it up to 3.3 miles in 60 minutes so each week I'm going to push for a 0.1 mile increase in an hour. So, by the end of next week I should be at 3.4 miles. I was also able to run for 2 minutes straight. I also feel that my running posture is getting better. I'm paying attention to how I place my feet when I walk and run, making sure that I lead with my heel and keep my head elevated. It really makes a difference and harbors less stress on the body.
So, have you noticed my moodies? They are pretty good at visually describing how I've been feeling. My mood for this week is very optimistic. In fact, I'd say my glass is over half-full. And why is that? Because I'm over half way to my first goal. I need to lose 61.2 pounds to reach my first goal, and I only have 27 pounds left to go! YAY!
I must admit that I never expected to lose as quickly as I have, and I know the weight loss will taper off soon. I can't lose at this clip forever. In fact, I've been losing more weight these last few weeks. This all correlates to when I started my interval training twice a week on the treadmill. Each week, I've lost more and each week I've pushed for a faster time so I'm increasing intensity. I also make sure to keep tabs on my heart rate to make sure I'm not overdoing it. I want to work out safely.
