... but I did get 19.2 miles! :) That's pretty close enough for me, especially since I have two more opportunities to go 20/20+ before my marathon. WOOT.
This weekend is a cut back LR - 13 is on the schedule, and since we're running the half marathon course, I bet I won't get much more than 13 no matter what. I think there is an alternate route for 14 or 15 or something that I might do, but it'll still not be up in the 18-20 range for sure.
Yesterday my amount of calories was good, but the quality was crap. Pumpkin pie for breakfast and dinner. I was SO TIRED in both occasions -- AM was at like... 4:30AM after having been awakened at 3ish because the basement was flooding and I had to clean out our closet (which turned out to not really be affected) and DH was cleaning out the storage closet (which was where it was REALLY affecting). After that I was bone tired but knew if I went to bed I'd lay there and get hungry because I had been awake too long to not start getting hungry. So I went for the easiest possible things.
Dinner was post run+hulahoop+grocery shopping. I started cooking some chicken for lunches and was planning on a sandwich but my hands were getting shaky and my body was saying FOOD NOW DANA FOOD NOW! So the pie came out. haha. And I supplemented it with some whole grain chips.
Now -- Pumpkin pie is apparently the healthiest of the pies. I didn't top it with any whipped topping, it was just pumpkin filler and crust. But pie does not a good meal make. Oh well.
(1900+1356) - 2032 = 1224
So I'm starting with a fat deficit so far this week. Today will be a REST day. This morning I was too exhausted to get up and run, even knowing that this evening it's supposed to storm. If it doesn't I MIGHT go run, but my real plan is to beef up Wed/Thu - Wed 8 Thu 6 (vs. 6+4) to add in those extra miles. Should do some ST tonight. Can probably manage that.
Now to just make it through the work day!
EDITED TO ADD: To clarify - my 19.2 mile run was Saturday, Monday night's run was just over 4 miles. I did not run 19 miles and then hula hoop and then go grocery shopping and whatnot. :D
