Rhythm and Blues 5k

So Sunday was the Rhythm and Blues half marathon and 5k in Houston.

E and I signed up for the 5k even though we usually take Sundays off bc our long runs are on Saturday.

Saturday we ran 8.5 at an ok pace. It was chilly with a breeze, perfect running weather. But we ran to Memorial Park for for a loop from E's place. As soon as we set foot in the park my hamstring started to tighten up so I just tried to take it easy after that.

I stepped outside Sunday morning and just knew it was not going to be a good day. It was warm and really humid. E and I both said later we felt like we had never run before during that first mile. But we just kept going and ran the race. It wasn't real pretty, but it's over now.

Leaving for Austin in 5 days!

New Goals - Lean

So I finally went back for my follow up body fat test last Tuesday. I didn't really know what to expect. I knew I had lost some weight and I could see more muscle definition, but I wasn't sure. I told myself I would be happy with anything under 30% since I was 33.8 the last time I went.

So of course in the lead up to the test I had like 5 cheat meals. Insert eye roll here. Saturday was margaritas and Mexican for dinner. Sunday was brunch and champagne and pizza. And then Monday was more Mexican bc of Sunday. Whoops.

Clearly I had to run Tuesday morning before the test. hahahaha

Then at lunch time I headed over to visit Heather. The got a new machine that's so supposed to be even more accurate than the BodPod and you don't even have to strip down lol.

So my new results were:
Weight - 147.6
Body Fat - 27.8

So I lost 6.3 pounds and 6% body fat. Total time elapsed between tests was 16 weeks.

This places me in the moderately lean category for women.

Moving forward, I think …
