Waiting for the big 10k

Posted riestrella on August 12th, 2011 | Filed under Ramblings, Results, Weight Loss Journey

I haven’t updated this here blog in a while and thought I would. Unfortunately I had to take it off the public feed because I kept getting masses of spam in my comments for some reason =(. I might change it again and see what happens.

My 10K training has come to an end. Here are my results after 6 weeks:

Ran a total of 53.25 miles!

Lost a total of 6 lbs, 0.8 inches from pudge and 0.5 inches from boobage!

I’m very happy with the results, and I’ve got the running bug so my next race is a half marathon. As soon as I run the 10k on Sunday training for the half marathon will begin. I’m crazy, yes, but I’m loving the training programme as I’m getting fitter, stronger and losing weight.

Today and tomorrow are stretch and rest days, so all I can do is wait for the big day on Sunday. I feel a bit nervous, I’m wondering if I’ll make it around. But I know it’s all for me, I’m not trying to beat a time I’m just there to do it and finish it and feel like I’ve accomplished something.

I’m currently at 177 lbs, 2 lbs away from taking another picture of myself to see the progress. Can’t believe I’m in the 170s, feels like yesterday I was trying desperately to get out of the 180s. Weight loss is slow, and I’ll probably be in the 170s for a while longer, but it’s nice to know that I’ve come so far.

16 lbs lost, 47 lbs to go!

    I was getting absurd amounts of spam too on my 3FC blog. If you notice, they should all be coming from your older posts (mine were at least). I just went and turned off comments for my old posts, and haven’t had a spam problem since. If I still get a spam message, I turn off the comments for that post. They seem to sink their hooks into individual posts.

    Unfortunately with these blogs you have to do that individually by editing each post separately. A little time consuming but worth it. Good luck.
