Today I set a new "John at the gym on the treadmill" record. I ran 6.25 miles in 60 minutes. That may not be a big milestone to anyone else, but who cares? They can write their own blogs. For me, a 10k in less than an hour IS a big deal. And I felt pretty good at the end of the run, so I know I still have more "oomph" to use. Yay for me!
So far, the perfect week is still working. I went to the gym twice yesterday, once today (and heading there again after work), and I have been carefully watching what I eat. I know I can do this - one perfect week - and posting updates here on the blog means I have other people watching and encouraging me, too. What can I say? Peer pressure really works!
