Weigh In Wednesday Week 3

Boy oh boy my legs are burnin’ today! After pretty much avoiding running all winter and sticking to elliptical’s and stair climber’s, I am back on the running wagon and I am definitely paying for it a little bit! My run training plan will have me working my way up to a half-marathon over the course of the next 4 months or so. If you care to follow along, this is what this week looks like:

Tuesday: 4.8km easy
Thursday: 4.8km easy
Saturday: 4.8km easy
Sunday: 8km race pace
Tuesday: 4.8km easy

Starting slow and steady but as you can see it starts to ramp up rather quickly, so if you’re following along be sure to take advantage of those rest days! I’ll be incorporating my weight training around my run schedule so it’s a little up in the air at the moment. I’m also currently only running on the treadmill (bore!) until the weather gets a little better.

Time for the weigh-in.

Measurements
Upper Arm: 12″ (no change)
Chest: 37.5 (-0.75″ down)
Waist: 29.5″ (-0.5″ down)
Hips: 39.5″  (-0.75″ down)
Lower Abdominal: 36″ (no change)
Thighs: 24″ (no change)
Calves: 15″ (no change)
Total Inches Lost This Week: 2″

Weigh In: 159.4lb. (-2.6lb down)

More slow and steady progress! I’ve also started logging my daily weight into HappyScale to gain a better understanding of my weight fluctuations. I used to weigh daily, but stopped for a while when I was just not as committed. Now I’m back to it, at least for the next month or two so I can see how I gain/lose around heavy run sessions – I’m imagining there’ll be a few weeks where I’m retaining quite a bit of water for muscle repair and honestly I’m just curious about it haha.

That’s it for now! Keep on keepin’ on.
