Wednesday Weigh In
This week has been a little tough for me, I have been battling sore muscles and my diet. I stayed on track when it came to the type of foods I wanted to eat, but I was having problems with the amount of those foods. I try to keep my calorie intake to right around 2000 a day but this week I have felt a little snacky. This led me to eat a little more of this and that, which let the calories crept up to 2200-2400.
The other hurdle for me this week was my sore/overworked quads after last Wednesday's long run that I split into 8 miles and then ran another 4 miles 6 hours later, trying to simulate how running Ragnar would feel. I went out a little to hard on both runs and just over did it. I wound up taking ibuprofen, icing them several times, stretching and rest to remedy the the problem. As they felt better I started running again but at a super slow pace. Here's a pic from my nightly rehab. I got tired of holding them in place so plastic wrap to the rescue! LOL
Now to the gym to put in my last 2.5 miles!
