That was GRrrrrrreeeeaaaaAAATT!
I wore my shoes a few times during the day this week and didn't really feel the rub so I thought I would try to run with them today. It was a great run: no tingle on the feet, lots of energy, all around good. Then I got to mile 2.6...the rub was back. I really wanted to go to 4 miles today. The closer I got to 3 miles the more I realized it was not a good idea. I got upstairs, took off the shoes, and a saw a bulging blister the size of a quarter on my outside heel. UGH. I had no idea it was getting that big. Yikes! Bummer. Physically, I really thought I could go 4-5 miles today.
OK, here's my question today: I'm not really seeing the pounds dissappear from the scale, but I feel stronger and can see some physical improvements. So, is there a direct correlation between the pounds gained in muscle and the pounds lost in fat? If so, what is the equation for figuring this? How much am I really losing and gaining? Maybe there are too many variables for this.
574 calories; 179 fat calories; 3 mi @ 6mph; 1/2 mi @ 3 mph; 50 min
