Here's the skinny: I've been near 300 lbs. for years and need to lose weight. I'm married to a wonderful lady, and we have a family. One of our boys often asks if I'll run with him. I've always had to tell him, "No." In August of '09, my wife learned about a couch-to-5k running program, and I agreed to try it with her. This blog chronicles our progress on that training program. I hope I'll soon be able to surprise my son by telling him, "Yes, I'll go running with you!"

C25K Redux - W1D2 (and 100PU - W3D3)

I'm catching up after a long weekend.  This past Friday was our city's annual fish fry.  I knowingly set aside my diet plans for the evening.  Over the weekend, I completed 100PU - W3D2, and I finished W3D3 this evening with a total of 127 reps.

The big achievement for the evening, however, was W1D2 of my C25K redux.  It went well.  So well, actually, that I ran through the entire workout twice.  That's right: twice!  I did the running segments the first time through at 5 mph, with the final one at 6 mph.  The second time through, I did most of them at 6 mph (I had one at 5.5 mph in the middle), and then did the final one at 7 mph.

I know it may sound crazy, but I didn't feel like I was pushing it too much at all.  Actually, it felt pretty good!

The weigh in is tomorrow, and I know I may not be down this week due to my fish fry consumption (two days worth of calories in a single sitting at 210 calories per fillet).  That's okay, though.  I know why, and I'm already back on plan.  We'll see what the morning brings.

Good night.
