2005-04-22 Treadmill Run

35 minutes, 6mph. Nothing complicated, but I want an easy week to get my legs used to running again. HR was lower than normal (146), until I got HOT (150). There was no air moving in the gym, and after 20 minutes or so I was sweating buckets. Ten minute stetch session after, with more stretching planned for later tonight.

Digital scale now says I'm 178 lbs, 15% bodyfat. This is about where I wanted to be at this time of year. I'm down 10 pounds of pure fat since the start of the year. If I can take off 8 more pound of fat, I'll be looking at 170 lbs. / 11% bodyfat. That would be awesome. I think I can get there by the middle of summer if I stay on the path I'm on. Historically, I can't get my weight much below 170. My body starts sending all the normal "I'm starving, give me ICE CREAM and CHOCOLATE... NOW!" signals.
