OW! I Think I hurt Myself!

I've been a bit hyper the past few days..and of course I head to the gym to work it out of me so that maybe, just maybe I can get to bed before 3am and without an ambien which makes you want to eat (last night I had two handfuls of ginger snaps around 2am maybe more)... I did 8 miles on Sunday in 2 hours (all treadmill), 2 miles in 30 mins on Monday, and today I did 9.25 miles in 2 and a half hours. I didn't feel it till I had driven to the pharmacy and got out to walk in the store to pick it up..and now..just ow. Seriously. Ow. My goal is to be able to run a 7 min mile. So some days I work on my speed and days like today I work on my endurance. Anyways I've burned about 2,200 calories in the past three days. I've been working out non-stop for a month and my friggin scale won't budge past a certain weight, which I will not disclose. My Dr. said 10 more pounds would be more than ideal.. I'm thinking 20 would be optimum. But the scale is not playing nice. I know I know..the fat is turning to muscle which weighs more than fat. Save it, I've heard it from everyone. Arrrgh!

The scale will catch up, don't worry! At least you're working out ... that's better than I'm doing tonight!
