Treadmill workout 142: At night, with guilt

I declared yesterday to be a cheat day for food and so was a wee bit surprised when I weighed myself this morning, and I was down a whopping 2.5 pounds. I thought cheaters never win!

This may have contributed to me cheating a bit on food again today. Even though I met my exercise goal and exceeded it by walking to and fro, I still felt guilty about the extra bit of snacking, especially after the big weight drop, which is just the sort of thing I’m going for. And so around 8:15 p.m. tonight I got on the treadmill and did a good 5K workout. Overall pace was done a smidgen, but still comfortably below 9:00/km and BPM was higher than recent averages, but at 124 was not too far off from the going norm. Overall, then, I am satisfied.


First, a funny thing about stats. I had been using a Reusable Block in WordPress for the stats, but hadn’t noticed I was mindlessly overwriting them each time, which means that a whole pile of these treadmill stats have been wiped out and replaced by the stats from my previous workout.

So I won’t do that going forward. Oopsie.
