Time to get rolling again…

Holidays = weight gain!

This is the first time I’ve had this much of a problem since I started in 02′. I knew I would gain some weight, with the Achilles problems I’ve been having causing me to cut out most running, it was inevitable. But this morning when I stepped on that scale and it measured over 15 lbs above my season low, I decided enough is enough!

I don’t look in the mirror and think “I look fat”, quite the opposite, I know I could stand to bulk up a little if I wanted to look better. For me it is strictly a performance issue, less weight = less required watts for me to go fast. So until I’m back to within 5 lbs of my target pre-season weight, no more alcohol or sausage biscuits…

On the postive side, I ran 9 miles off road at Rockbridge on Monday and 6 miles Tuesday with the Tuesday morning group with my Achilles feeling just fine. I should get in around 30 miles runnning this week which will be the most I’ve done in a real long time…
