Today I am feeling a little better. Haven't had alcohol since Thursday, so far I haven't missed it. Today I go to the Outlaws and will be offered a drink, and I will have to tell them I've stopped. When I told SO about it, she was disappointed because we do enjoy a single glass of wine with dinner out and if I make something particularly nice at home. I told her when I get down to my goal weight I would reconsider. We will see.
Since today is the big meal, I will fast until then. I took a 4-mile walk, this walk brings me to a nice park, near the river that then empties into Long Island Sound. The park has playgrounds, several baseball diamonds, tennis courts and a walking path around it and crisscrossing through it. I did some sprinting there, I would walk for a hundred paces, then sprint for 20. Of the 20, 5 were warm-ups 10 were full bore and the remaining 5 were cooling down. I did 8-cycles. I read in one of Mark's blog posts that there are even benefits to 8-second bursts. So, good! I'll try to work up to being able to sprint for 30 seconds total (5-20-5).
I am mindful of injury. During my drunken antics at the hotel pool, one night on the trip, I pulled a muscle in my shoulder (anterior deltoid). It interferes with some of the exercising that I do.
Tomorrow is my lift heavy things day. I'll have to be careful.
