First run of the year

Around the neighborhood for 5.2 miles at an 11:30 min/mile pace. That'll do for now! Not very substantial compared to my crazy training buddy Dave who rode 120 freakin' miles yesterday, but anyway, I'm sane and he's not. ;-)

And what do you know, I'm down 0.8 pounds and 0.4% body fat for the year to date! Gosh, if I could keep that up all year, I'd have zero percent body fat and weigh less than nothing!! Er, maybe that means I'd be dead. . . . let's not tempt the Fates. Let's call it daily variation in the correct direction. Yeah, I don't want to be obsessive about it - I just wanted a starting point on the first of the year, and then doing my usual weekly weigh-in today, which I do on a Wednesday to avoid the fluctuations from weekend workouts and indulgences.

It's going to be a great year.

Great start, Nancy. Oh yes... Happy New Year too.

Stay tuned...

120 miles? That's just wrong. Plus, you got the better end of the stick given it was nasty-windy out yesterday.

Nice run to start the year. I got a short swim in (had to pick up a co-worker as his car is in the shop), though I would have run had I known the track was open, again. It was a fast 3-4 weeks since last Friday.

Slow and steady wins the race.
