Crap. I'm higher than I was yesterday. My body soooo wants to be fat. It takes everything I eat and turns it to fat. I think I ate too many bites of bad things yesterday. I planned to make up for it with an extra 5 minutes running on the treadmill, but ended up really punishing myself with 15 extra minutes. So after my one hour of weight training I did a 45 minute run on the treadmill (5.9 mph for most of the way). I covered 4.37 miles! A fitting end to my last gym workout before the race this Sunday.

I had my post-workout snack and walked from the train station to work (about 30 minutes). I'm wiped out!

Tomorrow I start the run-up for the race with just the 30 minute walk from BART to work. Friday and Saturday I am totally resting - no exercise at all, though Brad and I are looking at a couple of apartments (one on Friday, one on Saturday).

I moved my weight loss ticker up quite a ways in anticipation of the monumental weight gain this weekend. While some will be just water, some will also be fat and take some serious dieting to get back off.

I hope and pray you set a new low on your low time of last year. I also pray your knee will be ok. Don't forget the light weight knee-brace. I would miss the walks if your knee was injured. May you run well and finish with a rush to the finish.
