Day Thirty-Two

I almost forgot I needed to post! Day 32 is at an end. Ummm… I don’t have anything particularly interesting to say about the number 32. It directly proceeds after 31, and it precedes 33. It’s the only number that does that. And according to some website I found it is used 11 times in the Bible.

Same old same old with the diet… the exciting news for me is on today’s run, #6. I took a solid 3 minutes off my previous fastest time, and came pretty close to completing the 3 miles without any walking (when I started walking my running app indicated I had gone 2.79 miles). And my legs were way less tired afterward than in previous runs. Even on Monday’s run, I was pretty exhausted afterward in a way that wasn’t true today. So I think I hit a significant breakthrough there. Since I’m adding in a 3rd run this week, we’ll see how things go on Saturday.

It’s worth noting tonight’s weather conditions were ideal… it wasn’t humid… it was pretty cool, high 60’s. That’s good running weather. I think Saturday will be similar (if I do it at night, might be warmer if I do it during the day). Next week looks like it’ll be a hot one, so it’s always possible there could be a regression if that turns out to be the case, but even so, this was good progress… my pace was faster by about a minute per mile, and that’s significant.

Tomorrow will be 33! See you then.
