Yesterday I was RAVENOUS. Not just a little bit, but a lot. And I ate a lot. I'm not sweating it too much - it was one day and I'm back on track today, but still. I definitely notice it, though... today I feel a little more poochy than I did yesterday.
I am subbing today, and then I'm headed to the gym for some upper body stuff. I want to give my strength training the same love as I'm giving my running. And my running is coming along really well. Yesterday I did 7 miles and it felt so good. I took along an orange Hammer Gel and had it about one hour in. It definitely did the trick. I made it to my mileage, no problem. I felt as if I could have kept going, but I am really making an effort to be smart about my training and not overdoing it. I don't have a Garmin (yet - when I hit 50 miles this month I'm treating myself), but my pace was pretty consistent. I use Map My Run, and it showed that my miles were all within about 20 seconds. Not too bad for going by feel alone!
- drink all my water
- keep my eating in check - I honestly think yesterday was my body not knowing what to do with itself because it just ran 7 miles. I think the plan for the next long run is to eat more food, sooner after I'm done. I didn't have very much after my run yesterday, and I think that had something to do with my eating spree.
- work hard at the gym! I don't like to waste my time when I'm there.
