Please only one at a time on the scale.

After some reflection and stepping on the scales this morning, I think my running form is suffering due to my weight. 207.2 this morning. Too heavy to expect to feel good during a run. I have to focus on weight reduction. I will continue to run it off but must temper expectations if weight is going to be 200 plus. I need to focus all energy on diet and watch every bite. Increased workout frequency will also be part of the plan.

Are we there yet?

I still do not feel great on the run. I know training has been sparse but I feel like my fitness should be better at shorter distances, less than 2 miles.
I have run a couple sub 20 minute 2 milers but I haven't had that easy run that would be the sign that I am ready to push the distance. Even slow, easy runs seem harder than they should. It's not over-training, if anything it's sporadic, under training.
I need to stop bitching and run more and then re-evaluate. Off to the races.
