I am happy to report things are going very well. My new nutrition plan is shaping my life. I am able to have smaller meals more often without any hunger. I realize now that I was hungary all the time. Basically my body crying out for CHO. I dont have near the cravings and my brain feels slow and clear. I have never had that before. I am down 9 pounds (the 5 I gained and 4 pounds less) in the last 3 weeks. I am not any where near as hungary, I am in control of my body. I have not over eaten and I have consumed very little "cheap" carbs. I am performing a lot better too. I had a 14 miler last week (my longest run ever) without any problems. Had there not been a huge hill in there I wouldnt have walked. I averaged under 10 min/mile too. Very slow but consistent. I am enjoying that. Last week:
Monday-ran 3 miles
Tuesday-spin + core
Wednesday (today)- 5 miles, with sore legs from spin and new kicks. The new Gel Kayano's in effect.
Thursday-shooting for 4 miler
Rest New years day
Saturday-16 miler....I am looking forward to it.
Happy New Year to all. I hope we race faster and healthier this year. QUOTE:
