I added a 1.3 mile run on Wednesday in addition to my non-running workout. Tonight I ran my scheduled 42 minute easy run and surprised myself with a 9.56 pace. I weighed myself today and I am now right at 200 pounds so I am hopeful the faster pace may be a result of the lower weight along with the conditioning. I am still trying to get my weight down to 185 which is a stretch but if I can continue to follow the schedule of adding a mile every week I may be able to accomplish that goal. Push ups = 70, sit ups = 83, slow but steady progress.
