Running-wise things went well this week. I did wuss out on a run because it was going to be below 30, windy and uphill. I have struggled with nutrition. It's almost destructive that immediately after eating lunch, when I'm still full, I want to start snacking and eating chocolate. Once I've gone off the plan, I figure I've screwed it up and might as well eat more sugar. A month ago I was down 3 pounds and now I've regained that. I set a goal last week to log what I was eating, figuring that would help and I couldn't bring myself to log my food. Do you struggle with eating? Do you have advice on how I can eat better or not completely blow it each day?
Monday- tempo run. Avg pace of 7:30 but the time in each split flucuated.
Tuesday- track 800-600-600 x3. It was cold and the boys were running slower which allowed me to stay a little closer to them. My 800's were 3:36 (wanted 3:30) and the 600's were 2:35's but my last one was a 2:24. I think that is the fastest I've run a 600.
Thursday- Supposed to be South Mountain in the morning but changed it to a 6 miler in the evening. Ran it with John and while I didn't intend it to be a tempo run, it turned out to be one and very consistent too.
Friday - off
Saturday- 20 mile long run. Because of canal work, we had to turn back before I hit the 10 miler mark and tag the mileage on the end. It became a mental game because at my normal 3 miles to go mark, I still had 6 to run. Funny how the mind works. It thought it was tired because of where I was at (only 3 to go I must be tired) yet I still had 6 to run.
Sunday- I'll go for an EASY 4 miler after I do some errands this morning.
Total Miles 41
Eating: F. See above. Any wisdom, insight and magic wands would be much appreciated.
Core: C. In normal weeks I'd say this was a B because I did the monster walk 3 times and planks twice. Considering though it was a goal to do it daily, I only get a C.
Goals from last week: Monster walk/planks/log food daily. C/D/F
Goals for next week:
Monster walks daily
Planks 3 times a week
Pre-plan meals and bring them to work in their cute little plastic containers.
