To be really objective the changes from photo one and photo two are:
*going from 55-75 miles per week
*continued diet of no refined sugar. (Started in Sept '12)
*running 3 additional runs per week in the form of doubles.
*An hour in the gym post run 5-6 days a week
*Lots of protein
I feel so much stronger. My running feels solid. I'm stoked the second my feet hit the ground running. Bring it on!!! 18 weeks till Boston! Woooha!
