ran/walked 7.2 at the Y track today

Monday, being my day off, is best day for "long" run.  It was WAY to breezy outside for a wimp like me, so I did 72 laps on the upstairs track at the Y.  Since putting on my old Mizuno Wave Creations, I can run without feeling like a dog that needs put down.  I can't believe the difference.  Sometime last week I finally broke through the breathing barrier that all new runners have to work problems at all on my last 2 runs.  Today I ran 5 laps and walked one up to 7.2 miles total.  I alternated directions to save my IT bands (hips) until an older lady reamed me a new backside for not "following the rules."  Everyday, the direction of the track traffic alternates....I was bending.....ok, I mean "breaking" the rules!  I asked everyone BUT her for permission...go figure!  She showed up when I had only 7 laps to go and didn't enjoy cheering me on the way the previous walking audience, who had long since came and went, encouraged me.  I was tempted to ask this 70+ old how she thought her hips would feel with 72 laps in the same direction however, I don't think she could comprehend more than maybe 5 laps so the argument wouldn't have benefited anyone.  Anyway, got an order in at my local sporting goods store to get 2 pair of last year's model of Mizuno's and a bargain price!  Can't wait to break them in....I really mean that too!

Good luck with your journey. Looking at your caloric intake and expediture, you appear to seriously short of your body's required needs. Wouldn't this begin to starve the body and as a result, begin storing food as fat because the body isn't sure when it's going to receive more food.
Have you ever been tested to determine your metabolic heart rate so you'll know what your body is burning / needing and then add your physical activity as well. Then build your nutrition plan from their.

I definately BMR is 1500 without vigorous excercise. This week just getting myself under control and making myself aware of what I am doing....but you are VERY right about that

Seems like your punishing yourself. Wouldn't it make sense to take in what your need is, maybe slightly less and account for physical activity on days you workout. Going to an extreme doesn't seem to be getting it under control, seems to be over reacting.

I don't disagree with you at all on that thought. I spent quite awhile thinking about that last night actually after reading a post from yesterday. I dont really get hungry with my gastric bypass and have gained some back because of grazing and not realizing where things were adding up. Uncle Louie (God love him) brings in donuts all the time. I have definately been punishing doubt! Tonight I am going to post a calculation and talk about calculating BMR. That's acutally how I recommend others figure their starting place and honestly, I would not recommend or allow someone to take in the calorie limits I have been doing to myself. I would thinking they were over I have been this week! That's what I want with this accountability thing here....someplace to logically keep things real.
