Warm and Breezy

Yesterday's Total Calorie Intake:  1922
(Exercise Calories:  200)
Total Net Calories:  1722

This morning's run it was warm - about 72 degrees - and breezy.  I ran around the loop of my parents neighborhood down here...it's about 1.4 miles around and about .1 of a mile from their house to the loop...twice around is pretty close to the 3 miles that I was scheduled for!

When I returned from my run and checked the actual temperature, I saw the weather back home - snow, sleet, freezing rain and temperatures in the 30s.  It's nice to be in Florida :-)

As for calories, I'm trying to careful but not sticking to my guns as it is vacation.  My net calories could have been higher, but Sherry and I decided to go Israeli dancing last night to get out of the house and get some exercise.  Tonight, we are eating at Ben's Kosher Deli, so it will be tough to get an accurate sense of how many calories I'm consuming.  My plan is to split the Roumanian Steak smothered with sauteed onions - I ordered this on my own last time and it was way too much food...luckily Sherry also loved this entree so we'll be able to split it (and perhaps get a knish too??)

Hey! Mike - it's Laurel! An hour after we met, I felt inspired and decided that I, too, want to train for a marathon. You inspired me! I have to do more research - into finding a good plan...both in the running schedule and in the eating schedule. As you know, I've done two half marathons, but I haven't run for the past two months, so I need to really start from the beginning. I have to pick a marathon (Florida -probably either WPB or Miami...but would like it to be about a year from now). Then I want to read on how to best go for it..and maybe post a blog, as well. How do I post a blog? What plan are you using? How are you counting calories? What suggestions do you have for me? :)
