Libs vs. Cons

Today I had my first speed work out at the gym today which was much easier than I thought that it was going to be and I found it to be slightly unsatisfying. You see on the track I would just go as fast as I could and I would finish faster than the time that was allotted me. This was just fine with me and I felt like I really stretched myself. On the treadmill I would set my speed at the workout speed and it wasn't really a big push for me. This might be a good time to say that part of the plan of doing the Half Marathon is to lose weight. I am currently right around 224 lbs, which is exciting because i was right around 239 about a month and a half ago. What I have been doing is Not eating any refined sugar or dairy. I will go into why later on. In any even it has helped. But in any even, due to my high weight, it is much easier for me to do short running stints at a higher speed than to do much longer runs, so I can usually do my speed workouts much easier than my tempo runs.

On the entertaining side on the TV's at the gym they have one of the tv's on the liberal news station and the other on the conservative news station. At the same time the liberal news was calling the tea party people a mob, and the conservative station was attacking the liberals stations for calling the tea party people a mob. What a country we live in. Also Kanye made the biggest idiot of himself last night. What a tool. . .

I am proud of myself because yesterday and for the first half of today I felt like I had the flu. I felt disconnected, my stomach felt weird, I was tired and achy, etc. I was thinking of writing off my workout for the day but I kept telling myself to wait and see how I felt later. Low and Behold, later I felt good enough to do my workout, and I felt pretty good after the workout. This should be a lesson that if you really are looking for an excuse to not work out, they are plentiful. I am excited about my training so I was looking for reasons to work out, and fortunately I found one.
