Well guys and dolls I knew that this day would come and it finally has. Last night I went to the gym, walked my two miles at 3.2 miles per hour, drove home, got out of the car and ... *cue choir of angels* my legs hadn't locked up on me! YAY! So I guess that means it's time to up the distance, though I think I'm going to go one more week at 10 miles just to be safe. Even though my legs didn't freeze up my knee did feel like it was slipping in and out a lot over the weekend and since my knee has slipped out before ... I don't want to take chances. It's painful.
So the Rock n Roll marathon is 14 miles (if memory serves?) so I figure I'll finish out this week at 10 miles, go next week at 10 miles, and then do 14 miles per week after that. Once that gets easy I'll start working on being able to do a certain number of miles per day and then start gradually increasing that as well.
There is a small down-side to losing this weight, very small. I may have mentioned this before but my ring doesn't fit anymore. :( If I'm typing or crocheting it just spins on my finger and I find myself frequently taking it off and setting in on my desk or table because it drives me nuts.
