2. Nutritionally, I have a lot of work to do. We had quite the indulgent week ("moderation" and "all inclusive" do not mix) at a time when I was still trying to make up for the holidays. It's amazing how easily the weight goes on when you work so hard to get it off. At the moment I'm feeling a bit like a blob and craving junk food like crazy. Isn't it about time for my first daiquiri? When does the buffet open? No more! The fridge is stocked with healthy goodness and I'm tracking on Sparkpeople.com again, chipping away at the damage. It was a lot easier back on November/December when I wasn't in heavy training mode because I could get away with a greater calorie deficit. Now that I'm running a lot more and have key workouts to consider, I have to be more careful about eating enough.
Aron has a great post on food today: Foodie for a Day (thanks for satisfying my curiosity, Aron!) I think it would be fun to photograph and share my eats for a day, so you may be seeing something similar around here soon.
3. One thing I have not had an issue with is getting back into training. I was excited to look at my plan to see what's in store for the week and start tackling workouts. I had a great double on Tuesday (medium-long including tempo) and a nice run with the group last night. We have hills on deck with clinic tonight and lots more to come. Thankfully the extreme cold snap only lasted a couple of days and the temperatures have been a lot more reasonable - although the roads and sidewalks have been a mess! Is it Spring yet?
Happy Thursday (almost Friday)!
Trip pics will be up tomorrow, so you may want to start addressing your hate mail now...
