Pretty stoked weight is really starting to drop.  Suit pants are getting loose again, good stuff.  93 miles total for month of July is a D+, considering I'm Marathon training.  Shooting for double that this month.  It's going to be tough to do and not get injured, but I'm going to roll the dice with a big focus on proper warm-up and Recovery.

---------------

Well, first month in the books and think it has been a good one. Lots of strength training and cycling. The first to build a solid foundation and the second to build endurance w/o the pounding of miles running.

Since August is recess month the challenge will be to get workouts in with a haphazard travel schedule. The opportunity, though, is that I have acces to a pool and my bike during the week.

Will look in to joining a small gym outside of the neighborhood for the month of August to keep the momentum there ...at least until I can my garage cleaned out enough to set up a home gym!

Doc said I can ease back into training, low-intensity, as tolerated MINUS 1/3 of what I think is "as tolerated."
It's like he knows me or something.

I've been waking STARVING these past couple of days.  Apparently my body naturally burns around 1500-2000 calories and so with exercise I've been trying to create a deficit by eating less than 2000.  The scale hasn't moved and I've been hungry in the middle of the night and starving by morning.  Maybe I need to eat more calories so my body doesn't hang on to things and can process everything more easily.  Eat more to lose weight.  Crazy concept but it's worked before.

Fridays.
Full moon nights.
Trying to make a choice on what to do with the weekend. There are so many choices!
Cycle 2 ride is in town this weekend. It is wonderful to have a thousand or so people riding bicycles all over the place this weekend. No, I will NOT be riding my bike either with them or in the same general area. Too many bikes on the road with too many tourists. The cars get all pissy having to wait for the bikes and act like idiots. Especially to the poor person in the back (me). A lot of the folks are camping at the park right across the lake from us. Someone is making them breakfast. I can smell bacon and the maple syrup wafting across the lake. YUM.. and I don't even eat bacon.

Today's run was a bit painful! I had to take a couple walk breaks. My hr seems very high, but I am still recovering from having a lot of dental work, so maybe a combo of that and the humidity.
