We sure can put the blinders on and just go sometimes. I seem to have put myself in this predicament on nutrition and my run schedule. At least I am stumbling upon conversation or helpful folks who either remind me to check my references, or point me in a direction to change or improve. Good thing I wrote it all in pencil so I can change it. LOL. Just kidding!
I am now armed with new nutrition insight and new caloric ranges, but can't get it to sync up with SP. I am torn on journaling all of it on SP because it is all out of sync...or purposefully tweaking calories burned to get to that range...and possibly considering using the SP meal planner because I am just not getting the calories in. I've made a few purposeful choices on food to get my caloric range up...but they weren't good ones. I'll need to do some planning, I think.
As for the training...well it seems my eager beaver self is 2 wks ahead on mileage. I have decided to stay at the current distance (or a mile less) for the next two weeks and then I'll be parallel with my schedule. I had it in my feeble mind that I'd just add a mile each week. Well sure...except Mr. Galloway is giving me a 'shorter long run' ticket every other week once I hit mile 12. I want to stick with the guidance. Having a much shorter long run every other week would help me recover (and that is the point). I am glad that I was prompted through casual SP conversation to open my book again and see this info. Otherwise I would have been too far ahead and on a path to derailing myself. I can't reach my highest distance too soon or I'll mess with the marathon mojo.
I'm relieved, I'm still working on this, and I am grateful.
