Thirtieth weight progress report

This post is yet another weight progress report, continuing the previous one, part of a long series since I started in January 2015.

I have not been able to keep my weight within my self-imposed target range for the past several months.

Summers seem to be bad for my weight, as both last summer and this summer were high-weight points for the year.

I think that part of the problem with summer weight is that I stay home more, which means much less exercise and more snacking. In August 2018, I only averaged 1.23 miles/day on my bicycle (under 30% of my usual exercise).

Although I restarted running at the beginning of July, I did not not run much in August, because I got a long-lasting cold on my trip to Boulder.  I was there to visit my Dad in the nursing-home/rehab-center where he was recovering from a stroke that caused him to lose almost all sensation on the left side of his body.  He has been continuing to improve, but we’re going to have to move him from an independent-living community to an assisted-living community, because he still needs at least minimal assistance for many activities.

There was a long break in my running in August, because of getting a long-lasting cold on my trip to Boulder, CO. I’m only just starting up again.

I didn’t do  Bike Santa Cruz County’s  12km run on 26 August 2018—not even the 4km short run, as I was still feeling the effects of the cold, had not gotten my training up to doing longer runs, and couldn’t see the point of biking over to Wilder Ranch to do just a 4km run at low speed.

I’m still running fairly slowly—between 10 and 12 km/h, which translates to a mile pace of 8:00 to 9:40, depending on distance (8:22 at 1 mile).
