Mineral Wells Adventure Race

Friday, July 15, 2005

Last night I ran my first 'double' workout. Yes, ran in the AM and the PM. Another WOW. :) My friends and I are doing a weight-loss/body-fat loss competition. Two different 'pots'. Oh, yeah, there's money riding on this! I did the weigh-in last night (aaack!) and next week I have to go to this place where they put me in a pod, zap me with some electrodes, and then I get my body-fat measurement (another aaack to be sure). Oh, and I have to pay them to do that. So, after we weighed in, we ran. Well, some of the girls walked. Then they turned back. Then we ran. Got in 2.75 miles total running. Forgot my watch though so I have no idea how long it took. Today is a busy day! Gotta pack and get ready for my Mineral Wells race. I'm super excited! It might actually rain all weekend! That'll help for keeping cooler. But, not so good since I'm supposed to sleep in a tent. I might be knocking on Jerry's door begging to sleep on the floor in his hotel room. Wish me luck folks. This is gonna be a toughie. If you're up on Saturday night/Sunday morning around 2 am CDT, think of me and hope I've managed to roll in, all in one piece, by then.

  • Good luck tomorrow!

    Hubby used to do the AM/PM double run when he trained for his marathon. He swore by it. I've never double run, but I have run in the AM, lifted weights in the PM.

  • I like doing double runs, but I'm weird that way.

    Put in a pod and zapped with electrodes? Gosh, we've come a long way from calipers! Have fun tomorrow!

  • Crys...no one should go on a diet. I didn't call it that. It's a weight-loss/body-fat loss competition, and I will NOT diet. I WILL change my how and what I eat and how I exercise. To me 'diets' are gimmicks, not changes in lifestyle.

  • Good luck this weekend! And with the weight-loss/body-fat competition! Yea, I don't much like to diet either --- though I hear it can be helpful, at least the ones that just help you with the how and what and how much you eat, etc.

    Anywhos, see ya when you get back into town.
