Duldrums

I went running today.   I cut it short...it was 37° and starting to rain.   Not a good combination.   I can handle one or the other..:not both.   Besides, time was running out.   It wasn't a spectacular run but it wasn't a bad one.

The biggest thing today is that I just feel blah. I don't know why.  I haven't felt this way in a very long time.  I don't like it!!

Even crazier?  Usually running throws me into a good 'high'

Oh well....

My 2017 in 2017 goal....and more specifically my goal for march to not run any deficit in my mileage update.

I am sitting at 119.07 miles (not including my 2.14 run miles from this morning).  That means I need 52.97 miles in 8 days.   That is 6.62 miles a day.   It's supposed to be nice this weekend and we are planning on having the bikes out....so maybe....just maybe!!!! It will be close I think!!!!

And looking at the march goal page we may as well talk about the other goals right now....

20 running miles.    The snow messed me up for sure!!  (Yes that's an excuse!). I am at 13.29 miles.   I have to run 6.71 miles to make that goal. Yeah next week there is only one day of the week that I can run on the morning....that could put a damper on meeting that 20 miles...because I am so not ready to run a 6.71 mile run!!!!!

The 1800 or less calories a day...there were a few days that I was right at 1800 calories and only 4 days I went totally over!!!!  Not a win but not a total loss!!!

Good for getting out running, even in the rain. I really miss it after 2 weeks. I won't come close to my March goal of 40 miles - I will be looking for 20 (need to get 8 in the next week which is doable with 5 miles and 3 miles)

Congrats on sticking close to your calorie goal!

Hey, March isn't over yet - you can still hit your goals! I have a hard time getting out to run if it's rainy and cold. Or if it's rainy and warm, unless it's been raining a lot and I just need to run, regardless of the dumb weather. Hope your biking is fun this weekend!

You'll make up for it when the weather is better for sure! The whole running thing still amazes me. I'll just stick to walking. But rumor has it I may be getting a bike this summer!

I like the way you put together this post, congrats on your weight loss journey, I have been trying to lose weight myself and i have finally lost over it myself and lost over 35 pounds. Something I am very proud of. I just wrote this post about losing weight without diet pills and exercise, this is something most people think can not be accomplished, but once you put your mind to it your are capable of accomplishing anything! lose 10 pounds without pills or exercise

The important thing is you still ran. Trying is all any of us can do.
