Time to start running

It's been a few weeks now since I ran Dallas. Since then I've done a lot of yoga and only minimal running. And then, while I was home, I rested completely.

So imagine my surprise when I went for a loop around Memorial Park last night and my right hamstring started getting tight again. It's a problem that started for me right before the Austin Half. And I can't seem to shake it.

I tried getting a massage and that didn't work. Lots of stretching. Hot and ice baths. The stick. Time off. But none of it seems to be working.

I could try to push through it. Hope it will just go away. But it's been about two months now and that's not happening. It doesn't bother me all the time. It's fine when I go slow. Mostly. But I don't want to go slow. It's time to go fast.

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 …
