7 miles, no blisters

I ran 7 miles last night without bandaids on my feet. No blisters. I kept the pace light, 9:30, in case it was the pace that did it. I just needed the miles, having not run since Saturday. I’ve been really bad about keeping up with the mileage this week.

Another bad thing? I find that I am overeating like crazy at night. Needless to say (but I will), the weight is piling on again. Pants not fitting nicely any more. :(

I just can’t help it. I arrive home, and just need something to eat. I went out to dinner with my folks the other night, and came home and ate two poptarts. WTH? Outrageously stupid.

This week is a step-down week. 13 miles this weekend. Then New Haven. Then 19, 20, and taper. I need to make truffles this weekend too.


  1. nooo don’t say that. i have been a bottomless pit lately too. i was telling myself it’s ’cause i need to eat from running…. riiiight like yesterday’s 2 mile run was that taxing. i’m just struggling all around this week with eating & running. :-/

    good luck implementing some self control!

  2. I am glad blisters are respecting you. Running is an usual thing, normally in life when you do the same things you get the same results. But in running sometimes you do the same things and get different results. Why? Who knows. Good Luck.

  3. Yay no blisters! Don’t worry about the eating. You will get it back in control. Truffles…mmmm

  4. Ugh, tell me about it. I’ve been so good during the day, but in the evening I start losing all discipline!

    Send some truffles my way, wouldya?!

  5. The longer my run, the more I eat. The more I train, the more (weight) I gain. It makes me a bit happy I dont have the time/ability to do another marathon … I dont want to pack those lbs back on ;)

  6. Stop coveting Jeanne’s pies too.
    I have 20 miles in the bank this week already with 20 to do on Sunday. I lose 5 pounds every time I run.

  7. I’m with you on the food thing – it’s impossible to lose weight while training for a marathon.

  8. Hopefully those blisters were a short-lived affair.
