In the gym this past week I decided to step on a scale between sets to see what this running hobby has done to my weight. I’m pretty lean already, so I was really hoping the weight loss wouldn’t be substantial…. but I get on… and I see…. I’ve GAINED 3-4 pounds?? I thought that was a little odd.
On another health note , I’ve also trained myself to go a long way without water. When I began running, I couldn’t go 10 minutes without a drink. On my daily night runs to 96th street and back, I’d take a bottle of Poland Springs and that baby would be licked clean by the time I got home. Even if I wouldn’t drink all of it, any liquid remaining would get dumped on my head. I’d be that wiped. Now? I’m like a camel. Can go over an hour without any h20.
Moving on… tonight I ran to 100th and Central Park West (4 miles… no water)! Felt great. Not many more training runs to go before the big one!
