Light Like A Gazelle

While running with J this morning, we decided that I needed to lose another 5-10 lbs.  Actually, J decided that for me.  He explained that being lighter would help me run faster.  How diplomatic.  He managed to get me to agree with him and not get offended (it’s hard to get mad at the ‘voice of reason’).  So for the next 10 weeks, I’m going to try to shed the extra weight.  How much would depend on how I feel on my runs.  I don’t want to lose too much and end up losing my muscle and strength.  Apparently there’s an ideal weight for peak performance, and unfortunately I won’t know until I hit it, at which point I should feel lighter, faster, and stronger at that weight.  I guess I’ll find out soon enough.
