I barely made it home in time tonight for the ending of The Biggest Loser. Actually, I was able to catch the last half hour.
Troy began basketball practices tonight - seems like we just finished football - and I ran to the gym for 45 minutes to lift while he practiced.
Did you watch? Pete had lost 80 some pounds in the past 8 weeks. 80 pounds! He was voted off, although they all loved him very much, and since he has been home he has lost another 50 pounds. That's incredible!
There was a clip of Pete and his wife running down a road. She's lost 50 pounds along with him. Amazing.
The show has changed their lives. I think it is so good to see that people 400+ pounds can make a lifestyle change. He would have NEVER believed that he would be running miles with his wife. Now that's inspiring.
I'm pretty well recovered from Ed Fitz 100K. Last week I ran 30 miles and I'll probably continue to run only 30-40 miles a week through November.
I applied for Western States 100 Mile Run (www.ws100.com). I Won't know until December 5 if I've been accepted to the race. Once I find out I will begin to make my running plans and workouts for '06. It all kind of hinges on getting into Western.
I'm scared to death, I've never run on a mountain! My long range goal is to run Grand Slam so I better get started :)
This morning I ran 45 minutes on the treadmill for 5.75 miles.
