Back on the Track Day 9

Well, missing Saturday's workout had the bonus of getting the days lined up again. So now I'm on 20 minutes of walking plus 5 minutes on stretching. I think crosstraining on rest days starts this week too, but I didn't bring the binder with me to double check.

Walking to a time goal is much easier. And I'm always pleasantly surprised by how much I have walked. On Day 8, the first day of the 20 minutes, I walked 1.25 miles. Day 9, 1.13 miles. It fluctuates because the track's policy is to alternate
lane usage on different days.

Weekly Stats

Abdomen: 120.5 cm
Hips: 115 cm
Knee: 41.6 cm

Calf: 43.2 cm
Ankle: 23.1 cm

I'll admit when I'm stumped. I don't understand when I am shrinking--albeit slowly--the gut which needs to go bye-bye is gaining centimeters! Maybe it will show a difference in the opposite direction once I start upper body crosstraining. Or maybe what fat cells haven't been consumed are gathering there to make a final stand.

Not disheartened, but confused. And very tired of getting pinched by the waistbands of my pants.
