I’m still not feeling well, the pain in my throat is gone but I have to cough a lot and I’ve lost my voice almost completely. I kept on working this week but I’m having a hard time concentrating which means that I’m now behind at my work. Tomorrow’s my day off so I’m taking it slow and hopefully feel better soon.
I did take a break from exercising on Monday and Tuesday.
Today I decided I had to run, I wanted to know how I would do at running with my cold. It was hard! I ran 2.5 miles in about 30 minutes. My lung capacity isn’t a 100%. I’ve lost my confidence through this that I will run the 10K without walking on Sunday. I’m kind of getting afraid that I will finish last.
My best friend who was supposed to run the race with me injured her ankle yesterday while running and she won’t be participating Sunday. She is however going with me to the race and will be cheering for me along the road together with another friend of ours.
I have a question for the more experienced runners: I planned to run today and then no running till Sunday. But I’m thinking of running a short run on Friday just to see how my lung capacity is then. What do you suggest: is it okay to do a short run or should I rest till Sunday?
The Hot 100 – Going out with a bang
Did you know that today it’s exactly a 100 days till this year ends? South Beach Steve at http://logmyloss.com/?p=1975 has created a challenge: the hot 100 – going out with a bang. You’ll have to set goals for yourself and post about them at least every 10 days. If you want to join: visit Steve’s blog. I decided to participate.
My goals for the next 100 days are:
Lose at least 6 kg / 13 lbs.
Reduce fat% with 2 points (09/23: 43.3).
Exercise at least 4 times a week with at least 2 runs in a week.
Complete the 30 day shred between September 23th and December 31th (at least 5 days a week).
Complete a 30 day challenge hard at the WII EA Sports Active.
Sleep at least 7 hours a night.
I will keep you updated on this challenge every 10 days.
What’s for dinner:
Yesterday I’ve made hot chicken with rice and vegetables.
Today I’ve had no inspiration so I’ve made junkfood, something that’s called “broodje shoarma” in Dutch, it’s a pita sandwich with spiced pork meat and garlic sauce.
Well as I said above I’m not feeling well so basically do nothing more than work, read some blogs and go to bed early. Very boring but I want to get healthy soon so I really need to do things easy these days.
Did go running even though I’m not feeling well
Most mistakes in a race are made in the first two minutes, perhaps in the very first minute.
(this one I have to remember Sunday!)
