Day 9. Finding a New Route.

Well I was wrong. Based on my previous day’s activities and caloric intake, I predicted I would lose lose a pound and weight in at 174. Actual 7:20am weight – 173.5 pounds. This is in line with my target weight loss calculations and chart and further supports my belief that weight loss is easy as long as you keep it easy.

Early morning start begins with a quick stretch because Dr. Oz says it is a good idea and if Dr. Oz says it, it must be true. I say this jokingly, but not really. The man is brilliant.

Load up on my traditional shake and an 8-ounce glass of Herbalife Hydrate. Since I have too many miles on my Brooks GTS 12s, I wear my Brooks Pure Cadence 2s. I only wear these on short sprints of 3 miles or less. They tend to hurt my right foot along the outer edge, but it’s time to give them a spin at a longer distance today. The goal 8 miles. The route a country road I’ve never run.


Surpassed the goal by a little, but that was walking for the last 1/2 mile. I’m not hitting my same splits as before and I’ve notice my arms get cold and they aren’t sweating when I get to the 5 mile mark. The weather difference is taking a toll on my distance and my body. Attempted to do some pushups as a change of pace … At 1, my left shoulder twinged. At 2, my left shoulder had a sharp pain. There was no 3. Next time.

Home and just drank Alhambra water straight – nothing added. Then drank some more. Good stretch and within 10 minutes, I’ve already cooled down and have a healthy light sweat back on both arms. Again proving I am most likely dehydrated due to the hotter weather. When I was training in the winter for my first 4-man relay race, I was comfortably running with a long sleeve shirt. Life lesson #9 – The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I need to find a workaround.

After just water, I chased with an 8-ounce glass of Herbalife24 Rebuild Endurance.

Recovered from the run in about 10-minutes. Feels good and now I see why Herbalife24 products are used by triathletes.


Physical therapy to end the day and the promise of increased range of motion. I can already feel my golf swing returning.

Put some road miles on my body today. Herbalife Restore to the rescue and good night.
