I am not really sure what happened this week, I thought to myself, after what I saw on the scale this morning. The reason is because I have drastically decreased my running mileage and increased my food consumption as well. I haven’t gone overboard with my food, but I have increased the caloric intake with the majority of that increase coming from high carbohydrate foods. I have added a lot of potatoes, brown rice and pasta to my diet this past week, mainly to load up on the carbs for the marathon. To be totally honest I figured I would be up a couple of pounds because of it. I’ll gladly take the drop, but sometimes the body really doesn’t make any sense to me. Anyway, a loss is a loss and I will celebrate it like all the others, and keep working towards my goal!

Not much of a long run, hahaha! A three mile super easy pace run would be my last of my marathon training schedule and last run before Sunday's race. Normally I post about my Wednesday run here as well, but since I will be posting my last training recap tomorrow instead of Sunday I figured I would just post it there.
