Monday...

Team Weight Loss -2A
Tonight was a weigh in, flexibility test and caliper measurements. That took the first 30 min. Then we went to a treadmill workout with incline intervals up to an 8 with 5 lb barbells. We must constantly watch our HR not to go out of zone 3. I am not sure currently where my zones are at so I am scheduled for a MAP test at the gym on Friday. On Weds., we are meeting with the sports nutritionist to get logs. I have lost 2.5 lbs. so far!

Marathon Update-
What a chaotic mess. My friend DeeDee did not get to finsh just like 10,000 others. She did not have any heat related problems. Luckily she had money to buy something to drink at a Shell gas station otherwise she sould have had problems due to the lack of water and gatorade. Officals deny this existed but there was nothing there for the back runners. It will be interesting to see if this has any bearing on Chicago's bid for the Olympics.

Waddling.........

Congrats on the continued weight loss. I'm also glad that DeeDee was okay.

Good for you on the weight loss! Those workouts sound like killers! As for the marathon, several people I know were down there. A few completely finished, but they were faster runners and had no knowledge of the problems. One was a 5:15 finisher, and he just decided to do the whole thing unaided, since he has done about 200 marathons now and to him it was just a matter of finishing slow as usual. The rest did not do the whole thing but a few still got times. Weird all the way around.
