Last night I was TIRED.. Hubby and I had planned to got for a 3 mile run after our food (Homemade Pizza) settled. Well that never happened. Instead I settled for in-home crosstraining which consisted of push-ups (on my knees), crunches (with two kiddos crawling on me), and 30 minutes on the stationary bike. The highlight was that "The Princess Bride" was on while I was riding....if you have not seen this movie RUN to find a way to watch it... DVR, Rental or purchase ASAP. I forgot how much I LOVE this movie.
Just after the ride I was stretching and noticed that my (GROSS) toe looked funny. So I pulled a little on the nail and (REALLY?) it pulled right off. YUCK!!! YUCKY!! Ewwwww! I have officially joined the ranks of Runners now that I have lost my first, strike that, 2 toe nails fell off last night. Oh how lovely my toes look for Summer.
Side note: After reading this post HERE on Half-Marathon Mania. I went to Running For Fitness to look up the "Predicted effect of weight change on time." First I checked my BMI and I am considered "Overweight" (REALLY?) Just by a few pounds, I am in the top of "Normal" or bottom of the Overweight catergory. WOW!! So my ultimate, pie in the sky, goal is to be 180lbs, which would place me as "Normal". From the chart below that would mean I would shave about 2 minutes off my 1/2 Marathon PR.
I am not at all stressed about my current weight but I REALLY have issues with a tool calling me "Overweight", I just ran a Marathon for crying in the night..
How do you feel about the BMI tools?
Do you think that weight loss is truly the path to a PR?
Signing off and planning to trade Pizza for Salad tonight..
Have a great day!!
