Slight milestone for me

Posted 10-09-2007 at 01:46 AM by curses

In regards to fitness. Over the weekend, I took pictures for the soccer charity that I work for. They had a street cup tournament in Centennial Olympic Park. We spent the better part of the day roaming around taking pictures and playing soccer with random people.

I took yesterday off. Today I was actually able to run in short bursts with no pain! We found a park with soccer fields so my husband and I took turns setting up crosses and corner kicks. I played for about 45 minutes and I'm not in any pain for the first time.

    Pain free soccer? You're not doing it right. ;)

    Nooo, see the pain's supposed to come when some ass comes studs-up at your shin, not from the simple act of running around a pitch :P

    Congrats, curses. I wish I could get excited about exercise, then maybe I'd do it. :D

    My current fitness plan involves working 3-4 hours per day at some long-neglected chore or project here at Rancho Pobrecito. Hey, it's more than I've been doing.

    Oh, and the chocolate cheesecake diet is working pretty well. I've lost 5 pounds in as many days eating a piece of chocolate cheesecake for breakfast, nothing for lunch, and a modest evening meal. For some reason, that rich cheesecake from Merritt's Bakery lasts all day long. It's way more satisfying than two bowls of oatmeal.

    Congrats curses! I too am trying to get back into a fitness routine and beat the pain. Most mornings the past two weeks I have made to the Y and done 1-2 miles on the treadmill. Plus I got some of the banana nut crunch cereal and some delish cappucino protein drink I like so I have been eating a real breakfast again instead of just inhaling a granola bar in the car. Lost 8 pounds since last month though...so, something is working. Weekends are still tough--since I don't HAVE to get up for work I tend to sleep in, and since my wife works only on weekends by the time I get up she is leaving for work and then there's no Y time for me. Tomorrow I might just set my alarm and get up and go. I can always take a nap later.

    And I think I might have discovered what was causing the very sharp pain in my left foot when I walked--it was my "work sneakers." I stopped wearing them to work a couple weeks back and and wore instead an old (but dilapidated) pair of sketchers I got 3 years ago. The sketchers look like hell, which is why I stopped wearing them to work, but they are way more comfortable.

    This past week I wore the new sneakers again for two days, and the pain came back.

    Looks like I need to get some different shoes for work...
