This was a fairly busy week from an overall fitness perspective. The week before I had a nice cutback week and this week I started building miles again. The plan is to work my base up to 40 miles per week. This week I also started working on dropping another 10 pounds or so.
Ended up at 35 miles for the week. Overall it was a good running week. Hammies have been a little tender, so I've been keeping the effort easy and sticking to flat routes as much as possible. This coming week the planned miles should be 35-37. I'll work on doing more stretching and rolling to loosen up the quads and hammies.
On the weight control front I started using My Fitness Pal to log my food. I like the simple interface and their database is huge. I guessed my starting weight last Monday was about 165. Tuesday when I weighed myself I was 163.5, so I was close on my guess. Friday I was 160.9. Not bad. I want to get to 150-ish and then really learn how to maintain in 2012.
What's up with all of you? How are the holiday preparations coming along? Are you busier than a one-legged man in a butt kicking contest?
