Wow it's been a while! I'm a slacker with posting to my blog when I have stress. Without going into it, I have had MAJOR stress in my life the past few months. I'm glad to say it hasn't affected my fitness routine horribly. I haven't really lost any more weight (still right around 88-90 lbs lost) but I have definitely maintained during what has probably been the most difficult time of my life.
I feel myself getting stronger - both physically and emotionally and that is encouraging. I went for a run by myself last night at the trail - this is a first for me, I think. I just wanted to do a quick 3 miles because it was still fairly humid - I ran the first 1.5 miles in 12.5 minutes. That's FAST for me! I finished all 3 miles in under 27 minutes so that's a milestone in itself.
I'm doing great with my weight routine for the most part. The only negative thing is if I don't do it regularly (I prefer to do it Mon, Weds, & Fri), I feel the effects after...i.e. I'm more sore if I do legs/back only every 10-12 days as opposed to once a week. I'm working on getting back in my regular routine though.
My next goal with regards to running is to run in the Hartford Half Marathon in October. I've been regularly doing 4-5 miles, that's pretty much my norm now. I just need to start stretching it out, adding in a longer-distance run combined with shorter, faster ones to mix it up.
I think I do want to lose that last 10-12 lbs to make it an even 100. I think I could do it without being too thin. I definitely have more toning I could do, inches I could lose if I really worked hard.
I'll try to update more often, stress or not! :)
