Day 6

Last night I did it I got day 4 in before weigh in day! I stopped at the gym on my way home. I did the eliptical for 30 minuites, and still had 15 minutes before the gym closed. So I thought what the heck I will run a mile, now I have been running on and incline for this entire time, to burn more calories. This time I did not put it on an incline, and just went straight to the run, and was able to do a 10 minute mile! Funny thing is I think I could have kept at that pace a mile or so more. I asked Ryan's opinion if he thought I should go off the 10k training program just to see how far I could run like that, he told me no, just keep at it.

I am loving the feeling of running...but still only after I run. I hate running while I am doing it on the treadmill. I did sign up for the Shamrock run. It is another 8k, and like the turkey trot there is free beer after. So I am sure Ryan is going to be in on this one too. I am also excited because after last night I know I will beat my turkey trot time.

Today is weigh in day so I am being extra good today, I started off the morning with an orange and 1 egg, 2 egg whites, with mushrooms, onions and a touch of cheese. A nice filling breakfast.

Wanted to let you know, I got my 4 days in. Dad took me snow shoeing 4 days in a row. My thighs hurt and I think my left knee is in need of surgery. Each time out was a minimum of 1 hour 20 minutes. So we should be ready for the race this weekend (if we have snow). -- Mom
