I decided to test myself on Saturday and I paid for it a bit. But it felt pretty good.
Allow me to elaborate. I went to the gym and hopped on the treadmill. I decided that I was going to run as along as I felt comfortable. I made it .8 of a mile. I know it is not anywhere near the 5K I am getting ready for, but it was not bad. I did that in just about 10 minutes. Then I walked for another 3 minutes and tried to run again and only mustered 90 seconds. I know I pushed myself to far during the first run and my legs were just dead. But it still felt good to know I could run that distance. Now to add on to it. I will be back at it tonight and attempting to get a full mile in. My legs still feel a bit dead but I will try to power through.
In other healthy living news: I grilled some salmon last night and I have to tell you that my first experiment grilling fish was good. I glazed the salmon with lime juice, honey, ground red pepper, salt, garlic powder and coconut shavings. The result was very good. I grilled the filet skin side down first and when I went to turn it the skin stuck. I thought I was done for. Thankfully while the skin stuck to the grill the meat turned perfectly. At that point I was certain that the fish would stick and I would be calling the pizza man for dinner, but it didn't. Beautiful grill marks and and delicious finished product.
Check back tomorrow night to see how I did at the weigh in. I will need to really buckle down and do some really good work to get to the 299.8 mark by next Tuesday but I it is doable.
