stupid math

I did do the math wrong the other day. And who knows how many other times. My timer cycles every 4 minutes. So if the timer says it's gone through 7 cycles, then I have been running 28 minutes plus whatever is on the timer toward the next cycle. Well I think I have either been just taking the cycles and not adding the additional minutes, or I might have even been subtracting them!! IDIOCY. Anyway it's ok. I ran 12:42 miles today and it's my 4th day in a row so I'm happy. 15 miles so far for the week. Don't know if I'll be able to get myself out there in Pinetop or not, but I'm going to try.

I went fast!

I did 5 miles yesterday and 2.3 miles this morning. When I got home today and mapped my run, I found I did 11:30 minute miles! That is my fastest time ever. I did the math 3 times because I couldn't believe it. So, even though I have gained about 8 lbs. since the race, I am not slowing down. I am having such a terrible time with my food. It's so hard being home all day and having all that math to do, and not be munching all day. I just crave sugar. It's awful. But I really do feel it's temporary and as long as I keep trying, I will get it together eventually.
