Yesterday wanted to run in the afternoon after work, but life got in the way, so DNR. Today I could not run in the morning, slept in, in the afternoon after work I went out to the conservatory at 7:00p.m. and did 5 laps there, feeling pretty good and strong, wow I am feeling pretty good during my runs, I dont know if its due to the soda quiting, but I am feeling pretty good and hydrated and full of energy. In the 5th lap did 4 x 100s+ strides, feeling smoooth and fast. Did 7.5k @ 42:47. I do have 17 days soda free, I am feeling pretty good.

This morning was up before 7 a.m., but did not get out until just before 8 a.m., I was our to the conservatory and got there in 7:22, there the watch turned off, it seems that the battery does not work any more, then it turned on again, and decided to run timeless till the 4rd lap when I decided to track my pace since I felt that I was running at a decent clip( for me on an easy day), the 4rd and 5th lap were in 5:34 and 5:29 respectively, then got home from the conservatory in 6:05, so did 17:25 for around 2 miles, not bad for an easy day. Felt pretty good and strong, was pretty hot at the end. Day 15 with no coke, I am enjoying this. Yesterday I weighted myself, I am 180 pounds right now, much heavier than 4 years ago, but I want to drop around 15 pounds. The last time I weighted prior to yesterday I was in 181 pounds around 2-3 months ago, We will see if in a month I am lighter due to the sugary drinks cut out!!if not then I still made a great decision in quiting that garbage! Have a great Sunday!

This morning was up at 5:30 a.m. and was out with my father to the conservatory at 6:00 a.m. We ran in opposite directions, but always were in contact. I did 4 laps there in 6:06,5:54,5:46,5:37. Felt better as the run went by, finished the 6.5 in 37:42, 1 second faster than my last run feeling much more confortable. Definetely its not easy to run after 11 hours of work, today I was pretty rested. Sped up in the last km as the body was telling me to. Wanted to run more but stomach problems made to leave the conservatory earlier than planned! Have a great Saturday!

Today opted to do a run after work, the girlfriend was going to be at college, so I have the time to run. I went out easy with my repaired ironman watch, and took splits. In the conservatory met Jose who ride with me while I ran, got there in 7:31, did 4 laps in 6:03,5:43,5:49,5:47, and came home in 6:19. I sped up in the last 400s for fun. Did 6.5k in 37:43, was feeling pretty lazy before the run, but I felt great when I finished. Good run and felt good, but at times I lack strengt in the hills, I think that is due to the inconsistency of the past few weeks! Day 13 with no coke or soda!

Had not run for the past week till yesterday. A combination of lack of water and lazyness ,but I ll never give up and ll never quit, so I am back. Yesterday was off from work and did 3 laps to the conservatory at 4:10 p.m. the laps were in 6:15,5:47 and 5:29, was feeling better and better as the run went by, but I was kind of full stomachwise, but then felt very good, did around 32 mins for the 5.5, clock got crazy when I stopped it at the finish of the run. Felt good. Today slept in and did not run, but tomorrow I ll be back on the horse once again hoping the water supply cooperate for the rest of the weeek. BTW, this is day number 11 of no coke or soda. Feel some cravings sometimes, but I always end up controling it!

This afternoon after work I was out running at around 6:45 p.m. I went out to the conservatory and did 5 laps there with Jose, good conversation. Felt good and drank a lot of water throughout the day, but boy it was hot!! the humidity was high!! Day 3 without coke, I am getting ahead!! Felt good but it felt faster than the 44:15 that I did for the 7.5k. Hope that the no coke approach help me to feel and better and to lose some of the excess fat!

Last time I ran was on Monday and after that was not water supply to run and wash the clothes, the last 2 days were lazy for me honestly. Today afternoon I took advantage that my girlfriend was on a friend´s house and I got to run at 4:00 pm. the earliest I have run in the p.m. in years so the sun was shining hard and it was too hot, but I hydrated pretty good during the day and did pretty good, did 3 laps to the conservatory and did a total of 5.5k in 31:27 with the watch on time of day, just effort base running, felt surprised with the fast pace given the weather and myself trying to hold back at times. I have decided to quit sodas and coke, did not drink it yesterday nor today, We will see how much that will last! that should help with the weight and the way I feel!! Happy to be back to the running scene!
