Today was the final weigh in for our Biggest Loser contest at work. After sailing by with a lead for from the first week on, I was passed in the final week when my new nemesis Chris dropped 11 pounds in one week. The end result was a second place finish. I lost 35.2 pounds for 13% and change in 8 weeks.
A pound of that came from moving my Saturday run to this morning. Ouch. I wake up each morning as a zombie. My limbs feel like they are made of lead, and it takes a lot of concentration to walk to the kitchen. I downed a glass of water, changed and ran. My pace fell :45 seconds per mile, and I covered the same distance in 28 minutes that I covered in 25 two days ago.
I'm just not a morning runner. I expect a strong Week 8, Day 2 with an extra rest day and returning to my normal time.
