Week 2 of 8-k training program & the scale is going the wrong way!!!

Monday, February 04, 2008

I have been soooo good for the last few weeks (except for the cookie dough incident !) I have been staying between 1300 - 1500 calories and burning mega calories off! So what's going on?? I gained 2 pounds!!! (I cant even blame it on PMS) Maybe I'm going to have to start really watching my carb intake, I'm going to give that a shot for a couple of weeks and see what happens.

Week 2 of 8-k training program

(I was originally going to switch the program a little because i plan to do a 5 mile race the beginning of next month. I decided i am going to leave it as it was written because I am having a problem with foot pain and i don't want it to get out of hand)

Mon ~ stretching & strength training
Tues ~ run 2 miles
Wed. ~ 30 minutes cross training & Strength training
Thurs ~2 mile run
Fri. ~ 30 minutes cross training & strength training
Sat. ~ 2.5 mile run
Sun. ~ rest

    I have the same problem. I haven't started running, but I feel your pain. I was being very faithful to my diet, and working out two hours a day via bike and elliptical and my weight started going the wrong way as well. I was told that it was because I wasn't eating enough, and that by working out as much as I was and pushing myself, it had actually thrown my body into starvation mode. I don't know. Seems backwards to me. I got frustrated, and right about the same time, ended up with pneumonia, so that put a halt on working out, and now I'm scared to throw myself into it again.... Best of luck to you. Let me know if you find something that works for you in regards to this. Keep it up though, it'll still pay off in the end, because you'll still be healthier! ~Rachael
