I'm sorry for slacking lately. Not much is going on aside from sweltering morning miles in 200% humidity leaving me crying on the side of the road. But hey, I'm not injured! I'll take it!
Technically, I'm 5k training. But there is usually one workout a week that I bomb due to the conditions. I am a cold weather person. This heat dehydrates me in 30 minutes. I'll keep plugging along with my 50-60 miles a week and if the speed doesn't follow I'll just call it base mileage. I like long slope-y strides with bounce. This faster turnover gives me a headache.
Having mastered the sub 7 pace (6:50's) for the marathon I really can't fathom going faster. My tempo pace is 6:25-6:30 and that feels balls out. We'll see. I may just be a distance person....in the cold...on the flat...lol.
I'm always trying to up my game so I thought I'd take a look at my diet and possibly tweak it with protein etc. So for 2 days I told Siri what I ate. Not counting calories for any other purpose than to just see what I eat. Verdict: I'm a pig! PS This is NOT a free for all to pick on my diet!!!
|These are my beloved $6 a box pops. Get them!|
|Probably not off this diet.|
So for now I'm going to try to add more protein and bust my ass around the track doing a little faster than marathon pace...lol..80-somethings and we'll see what happens.
