Training update II

Since my last post, I have lost about 4.6 pds and am 10 pds away from my goal. I have a feeling this 10 pounds is going to fight to stay on for as long as possible. Total loss to date: About 70 pds....(just remember 35-38 of that was pregnancy!) Brian has lost 32 and fit into a 30 X 30 pair of jeans the other day!

I have continued with the 5 days a week workout and today beat my previous running pace of 5.2. I bumped it up to 5.5 and ran 4 miles at that speed without stopping! It was pretty comfortable at first, then I began to picture the gym workers finding me on the floor and rushing to call an ambulance:) But in the end, I made it! I just kept reminding myself of my Biggest Loser hereos! If they can do it, so can I!

I officially signed up for the Mini Marathon and am excited and nervous about this.....
I've had a few people ask for before and after photos. If you are interested, I think I can manage pulling some out and posting my journey...leave a comment and let me know!

Wow, way to go, Karin! I can't imagine you losing 10 more pounds though...I think you'll blow away! :-)
