Sticking to the plan may kill me this week. Calgary seems to be heating up this summer. It just makes me want September to be here NOW. I'm longing for the cooler temperatures. BUT, I will continue to run whether I like the temps or not.
Having said that, I did 3 kilometres with the group tonight. I finished in 17:14 which is a 5:46 km. For me, that is a fast pace. I'm impressed with my time. It means I just told Mother Nature to get stuffed on more than one level.
I had five servings of fruit today. Three servings of vegetables. Elevenish glasses of water. Unfortunately, I ate 224 calories more than I should have. Since I only burned 179 on my run, I did NOT create the kind of deficit that I've been trying to achieve. I have four more days left in this week.... I won't let today ruin the good work I did on Monday and Tuesday. Besides, I still have my three favourite GL classes and another long run to do.
