Return from the North Country
Sunday, July 28, 2013
I survived the GLR. I had 5 runs in 3 days ... none were easy.... none were fast .... but I survived in one piece with relatively little hip pain. We had a great time. Our team was a fun blend of young and old, veterans and newbies. I was the slowest team member by far. I cannot run it again at my current weight (226 on the day I left). I told my teammates that I would not be back if I had reached an end of January goal weight of 199. Stating my January with a hard number forced a commitment.
I met my wife, daughters and grandson in Traverse City for a week of relaxation - trail running and biking. I lost two pounds on vacation ... that may be a first.
I've been reading a Matt Fitzgerald book on eating and training. It has got me rethinking my approach to food and nutrition.
