Discouraged this week by the slight uptick on the scale but this week was the week from hell. Unfortunately this whole month looks to be that way. This week, I fell down on the job of taking care of myself, and I let stress make choices for me that I wouldn’t have made otherwise.

is how fast I ran on the treadmill tonight.
Mind you, I only ran for a little over 5 minutes of my 22 minutes on the damned thing, but I ran. And they weren’t 5 continuous minutes of running–I walk really fast, and alternate a few minutes of walking really fast with a minute or so of running. Tonight, I ran faster than I’ve been able to, which is an accomplishment for this running newbie. I need to work on duration rather than speed, though. It’s hard not to want to run fast when this comes on my playlist, though:
When I listen to it, my pace is slow and then builds up. I’d eventually like to be able to run for the duration of the entire song. I got halfway through my playlist, about a mile in, and then I quit. I rode the bike for the next 30 minutes of my workout.
I would have run more had I not been exhausted.
