I didn't run last night. I had plans to run, but I chose to watch Olympic hockey instead, and of course watch the medal presentation (GOLD!) Once in a lifetime chance to watch on TV. I can always run more next week. It will be very boring without the Olympics to watch.

Hubby and I actually went out for a nice pasta dinner, and some wine. I ate the bread too. It was better than running :D

My pants are starting to get loose (my size 12's) and hopefully in another five-ish pounds I can be in size 10's again. That will feel good!

Tomorrow off for about an 11 km run with my group. I cannot wait. It was odd not running last night. However, time off is also needed once in awhile. I think it will make my run awesome tomorrow!

Looking forward to it, however I think it will be a raining one. Got to love our Westcoast weather!!

Until tomorrow, where I will update my 500 in 2010 challenge.

On my own Thursday

Tonight, as I was gearing up, I watch the Canadian Women's hockey team kick some serious A$$ and win GOLD for Canada.

I missed the medal ceremony, but I will catch it on the repeats tonight on CTV. I am not a hockey lover at all, but I was actually cheering and screaming! It was good!


So, my run tonight:

6.20 km
46:42 (really slow as I was experiencing tummy troubles, so I had to walk a bit to get finished up) I wanted to run 8 km tonight, darn it!)
549 calories burned
7:32 avg (see, slow but good anyways, at least I was out!!)
5:00 max

All in all, good times!

So, my 6.2o km run + my 2 km walk back and forth to school = 8.20 km

#500in2010 = 5 miles

Going to get a run in tomorrow night too.

Clinic night tonight. We ran about 6 km.

In the rain, and it was cold tonight. I am glad I wore my gloves that is for sure!

6.40 km
40:35 time
564 calories burned
6.21 av pace km
4.41 max pace km

Tomorrow, six hills!

#500in2010 = 4 miles + 1.25 miles = 5.25 miles total

I forgot to add in my 2 km walk yesterday! oops! Last day of sunshine and good weather for the next week or more around here! (will include those 2 in there!) = 1.25 miles added in the total above.

Yesterday, Monday.

I am just catching up from a most busy pro-d day with the kids. And last night, we took the three big kids into DT Vancouver. So, did we walk a lot! We were out on our feet for three hours last night. We walked stairs, we walked steep hills and hardly any complaints from our 10, 8 and 7 year olds.

We pretty much walked what we did last week, except we went a bit longer and further. We just walked a bit slower!

It was a great night, and we were on Robson Street at the CTV booth when the Canadian Ice Dancing got their GOLD! The streets of Vancouver were ELECTRIC. It was amazing! I am going to be sad when the Olympics are over.

So, we walked 7 km yesterday. It was awesome!

#500in2010 = 4.34 miles on Monday

I will post my miles from today, tonight. Still more walking to do today, and of course tonight with my run club.

Monday Weigh In

I weigh 176.0 on the nose.

I have lost 16 pounds since January 4th. That is 7 weeks, and about two pounds a week. Just right!

I have 31 pounds to lose. The same stupid pounds I lost two years ago. Except, this time I am taking more time to enjoy a treat here and there. Trying to make LASTING changes. And, so far I feel no deprivation. I wake up happy each morning knowing I am working towards an attainable goal.

Next weekend, I have my own boudoir session! Eeep. That will help me get my miles in this week! **session has been rescheduled now until April. Bummer.

And to keep doing what I am doing!

Sunny Sunday Summary

Well, what an amazing day for a long run in the sun! I haven't run 11 or over for quite some time. So, today felt like a big accomplishment. I took the group out for the run today, and it was a gooder.

11.77 km
1:17 mins
1058 calories burned
Avg 6:33
Max 4:57

#500in2010 Sunday = 7.31 miles

And my weekly #500in2010 = 35 miles (I walked a bit where it wasn't recorded on my Garmin, and enough to round up!)

(35 miles = 56.32704 kilometers this week)
