OK, I'm still at 172, the same weight I came back from vacation at but I have gotten back on the diet. I'm easing back into running with no significant problems from either knee so I'm starting to ramp up the frequency. More runs = more calories burned = less weight right? I always seemed to do best when I ran 5 or 6 days a week and its been almost a year since I tore my meniscus and had to back off a lot... It's time to see if it's going to cooperate

Last week's runs

I finally got back down to the 170 pounds I was at before our week in Florida so I'm headed in the right direction and now that good weather is here my workload has really picked up so that should help with the weight loss too. Since both my knees have been a lot better lately I'm starting  to ramp up the frequency of my running and last week's 3 day streak felt good. If I can put in a few weeks of running 5 or 6 days without any issues I'll start adding more miles with some longer runs.

I'm on track with the increased running but my weight is still about the same, actually up a pound this week. I ran 5- 4 milers last week with no problems other than a little tired due to lots of wood cutting (and a sore back but that's another story)... It's hard to balance my running and my workload this time of year. I try to run the miles I think I need to progress as I want to but a hard week of working on the farm plus running can leave me wiped out. Now days I set rough running goals for each week and for every run but I wait until I'm a few miles into each run to see how I really feel before deciding to go the intended distance or cut it a little short if I'm too tired... I don't beat myself up by forcing the miles like I used to and that approach seems to be working better for me. My goal for the next few weeks is to add a couple of 6 or 8 milers in to start getting my endurance back.   

The diet is still a work in progress and obviously I have trouble applying the same willpower to my diet that I do to my running. I have learned that in addition to taking in too many calories I am also low on protein, way low on potassium, and higher than I should be on sodium. In the last several weeks we've been changing our diets to correct those issues too. Thanks Trish for steering me to the http://www.myfitnesspal.com site. It has been a real eye opener.  

I'm happy with the overall numbers recently:

That looks like some good mileage in light of your farm workload and your knee. Do you think your cartilage problem is going back into remission?

I sure hope so Bill, we'll see how it holds up to more miles over time. The knee has been a lot better lately so I'm optimistic. It was about this time last year when I tore the meniscus and it took a lot longer for it to settle down vs the other one several years ago. I'm still glad I resisted the surgery even with the year of rotten running but if it gives me any more trouble I'll take my chances with the knife.

You are putting in some good miles!
And seeing where you diet flaws are is half the battle.

I would certainly up the protein for sure. That will help in muscle recovery, and may help to keep the knee in check.

Liking your new attitude also.
Do what you can, and enjoy it, instead of stressing about what you can't do.

Another consistent week of running. The diet still needs more willpower.

Good week Tutt. Probably best to have a cut back week anyway so the travel may be coming at a good time.

We were traveling most of last week and I only got in one 6 mile run for the whole week. I'll do better this week.

That's for sure Brian, I just couldn't fit it in this trip but I'm back on track now. I thought an easy week would leave me feeling re energized but the first couple of runs last week were miserable. The heat and humidity were part of the problem.

Thanks Louise! It's been too wet to get any haying done so I've been able to keep slowly building my miles. Today's 8 miler was my longest run since I injured my knee a year ago and it felt pretty good. I actually ran 32 miles in the last 7 days but since my logs are set to start the new week on Sunday today's run isn't included in this chart.
