After a 3 week plateau, I increased my cardio, since my ankle was starting to heal. I bought a really good ankle brace and started increasing from 2 k to 3 over the week. Wednesday I was down 7 lbs to 178!!!!!
The running gods were testing my perserverance though, and I contracted a bronchial infection that laid me out for the next week and zapped my appetite. Not eating, actually caused me to gain back a pound, since my body was in defensive mode and didn't want to let go of any weight!
July 26, I'm back to running and feeling pretty good other than a mildly sore throat.
Back to training for the Aug 14th... 5 k!
