    6 weeks into primal, first sprint today

    Primal Fuel
    Hi, everyone!

    So I am about 6 weeks into PB, been doing mostly just the food part, plus Bikram hot yoga 3 times a week ( I love hot yoga!)

    I have lost 9 pounds in those 6 weeks -- pounds I have been completely unable to lose for well over a year while doing Weight Watchers after having a baby. So although it's slow compared to many, I am delighted with my progress. (I am 5'2" woman, age 34, started at 168 lbs, am now 159. I have given birth to 4 children, youngest is 15 months, still breastfeeding him.)

    I haven't tried Mark's exercise advice yet, though I have been thinkuing alot about it and am picking up his book today.

    So I was walking to the bus stop today, and saw the bus coming. I was still quite far away, but if I missed that bus I was going to be late for work. I have never been able to sprint from where I was to the stop without having to stop due to being winded.

    I thought, "aw, heck, I'm gonna Grok." And I started to run -- and I made the bus, barely winded at all!

    I'm sitting here at work, still totally shocked. I haven't run that fast in many, many years.

    Awesome! Next time, instead of trying to catch something, perhaps you should imagine you're running from something. Imagine a lion's claws about to dig into your Achilles tendon. That's a motivator!
