Are you high, Clarice?

A quote from Runner's World:

"Here are some strategies that have proven most successful
for runners interested in maximum weight loss. RUN 25 TO
30 miles a week...."

A week. 25 to 30.

That's MILES per week, not minutes.

The fun part is that they only want you to run 2 to 3 times
a week, so that you can get sufficient rest.

And THEN they want you to run for 90 minutes at a time. But
make sure to do it a s "relaxed pace".

Okay, so let me get this straight...2-3 times a week, 25-30
miles.

Let's ASSUME I'm going to run 3 times a week - that's 9-10
miles a day. And I have to cover those ten miles in about
90 minutes. At a "relaxed pace".

What were they smoking?

The sad/scary part? I'm going to try it.

Now, I don't know about the 30 miles a week thing, but I'm
currently at 4 miles when I jog. I'm going to try to get
it up to 6 miles within the next 3 weeks. If I push
myself, I should be up to 8-9 miles within the next 3
months.

So now I'm all excited that I have a goal to reach that is
indirectly applied to my quest for weight loss. I find that
when I shoot for those types of goals, the weight comes off
easier than when I'm focusing on the loss itself.

I'm quivering in anticipation... And craving those
doughnuts that my supervisor brought in earlier.
