performance: losing 1.0 lb a week

Fatsecret veteran who's back again for 2013. I lost over 37 pounds through counting calories and exercise, but back after a foot injury last October that left me sidelined. I had to have surgery and was on crutches for over a month. Just starting to get back to normal, though the healing process is still ongoing. Between having very limited mobility, not watching what I ate, and the holidays, I'm back to lose the 8 pounds I gained (and maybe more)!

Food/kitchen scale recommendations?
Have this one and it seems pretty accurate.

Half Marathons
Thanks Erika and Corifeo. I invested the time and money to find a good pair of shoes last year when I started running again after a foot injury/surgery so I know the difference it makes. I also have three different pairs (same kind) and rotate them so they wear evenly with mileage.

I'm using the Hal Higdon training plan for a 15K to train for my 10 mile race actually Ericka! Seems like a doable training plan. I'm modifying it slightly to incorporate some speed work, but the mileage amounts are good goals.

I just wish the weather would cooperate with me! It's been so cold and rainy here I keep having to run on a treadmill (which I hate!).

Half Marathons
and other runs...Bumping this thread because I'm currently training for the DC Cherry Blossom 10 Mile in April and was looking around for some good running tips/motivation/advice. Anyone else have any races they are training for (5K, 10K, 15K, 10 miles, half or full marathons)? The farthest I've ever ran is only 4 miles so I'm a bit intimidated by the distance though I know it really comes down to be mostly mental. I think I have a decent training plan but would love to swap advice with folks. Who's got good running tips out there?

Gym equipment?
Does your gym offer any classes? If so, see if they have one that focuses on muscle toning using free-weights (dumbbells, body bars, etc.) and/or body weight exercises. Taking a class or two like these can teach you various exercises that you can than do on your own once you've learned proper form.
