That was the result of my official weigh-in this week. Initially, I am a little bit perplexed. I ate well all week long. I had a great week of exercise:
Monday: Elliptical trainer -1 hour Tuesday: Ran 5.5 miles @ 9:07 min/mile pace Wednesday: Strength training - 1 hour Thursday: Ran hill sprints (~ 15 second hill x 10 repeats)
Yet I gained a pound.
So, what do I do? I move on. Because I kept track of my calorie intake, and I worked hard this week I know that it is impossible to have gained a pound of fat in the past seven days (and that’s all I really care about when it comes to the scale). We’ll see what the next week brings.
Related, here are two blog posts I recently came across that I thought were very good:
On Running News: I have decided to sign up for the Unser Half-Marathon in Albuquerque on April 19, 2008. The event also includes a 10K, a 5K, a Kids’ K. People can also sign up for as a two-person 5k team or a three-person 1/2 Marathon team. The course looks flat and fast, and it is along some familiar running routes for me. I am optimistic about breaking 2 hours for the 13.1.
