Weightloss thread 8-26-12

SW: 270 (6-3-12)

GW: 195 9-6-13 

LW: 248 (about two weeks ago)

CW: 238
WL: -10lbs

I am still very hopeful to be running shortly, but in the mean time I need to keep my weight coming off, I had fallen a bit and it climbed back up in the upper 240's but I am feeling controlled as i ever have for losing weight with my diet. I fully expect to be 220's  by the end of sept and low 200's by the end of the year. I am still counting on the 35 mile at Tuscobia as well. I would be very happy to see 235 in the next 10 days.

Dreaming superior

All I did last night was sleep and dream of Sawtooth... honestly I can say that probably 40 percent of my dreams last night were spen running the sawtooth course and or how I would run it different. There was really a stupid detour on it in my dreams...

hmm, think this means I need a trail run.. hopefully next week.

2012 Tuscobia 50K / 75 Mile / 150 Mile Winter Ultra

I think I might actually get to participate in this race this year. I will be taking the lesser distance but with any luck there could be a decent amount of snow and I could take advantage of a winter run pulling the pulk just to get  a nice training run with 50 plus lbs in it.

The race started two years ago with Tim Roe as the race director and last year Helen and Chris took it over. I was not able to run it either because of health conditions and the past few years the date has been on my families Christmas celebration and I do my best to keep my running from interfering with family even though I would rather run this.

It appears the 2012 date is going to be Dec 28th-30th with a possible New Years eve party. not sure I will stay around for that, depends on what Mrs. Chrz wants to do for New Years Eve. But I hope to be up there for the 50K... would make a nice long run for me at my current condition.

Speaking of current condition, this last week I was having a fantastic week and then some things went wrong towards the end but I think it is minor and can get through it and back on the trails with in the week... no hurry my next race is not until Dec 30th :)... so I figure I only need to be in a fairly strong 20 plus mile on the trails by then with or without sled.. and I can fake the last 11 miles..
