Went for a run this morning. It was a good one. Now my legs hurt. A good hurt. Only 10 days left until my 100K relay, so I will be looking to get in probably 3 or 4 more training runs before then. I hope we have good weather for it. We've been allocated our legs of the relay. I'll be running a total of 9.2 km over the course of the day. I think that's very doable. The relay ends at Le Chateau Montebello, and we're spending the night there. Very much looking forward to that. It's a beautiful historic hotel with lots of great walking trails, wonderful food and a nice spa. Might have to schedule a massage.
I've started a new Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge. This one will take me through to the end of the year, which I think is pretty cool. I'm making more of an effort to have a shake for breakfast and lunch this time than I did for the previous challenge, when I was very consistent about breakfast, but not so much for lunch. We'll see how that goes, as I find when I do hard workouts, I'm very hungry.
I ordered a new scale. This new scale measures weight in tenths of a pound increments, and also measures body fat, body water as well as a few other things. My current scale measures weight in half pound increments and does body fat as well. I mainly wanted to have the smaller weight increments. As I tend to lose fairly slowly, I think it might be good for me to see the more precise measurements. I don't really put a lot of faith in the body fat measurements those machines give. They are just other numbers for comparison though.
Updated charts below.
Still consuming calories faster than planned. If this keeps up, at the end of the week I'll consider a higher calorie target, because I am quite hungry.
I have 82 exercise minutes remaining for the week. I'll definitely do more than this by Friday as I have volleyball tomorrow and a training session on Friday. Might look at raising this target for next week.
Not sure what to say about this one, as I basically only need to burn 52 more calories to meet this goal. As I said yesterday, I'm not sure how accurate any of the measures of calories burned are, so maybe I'll just track this and see how many I burn on average after a few weeks, and reset my target based on that.
