My appetite has certainly decided that I’m training for a marathon. I went way too wild with eating this weekend: wine and chocolates Saturday evening at a Montjuic picnic and then potato chips at the beach on Sunday, beer in the evening and pizza for dinner. I basically rolled my big belly out of bed this morning!
So let’s see if I can justify any of this through my training…
Monday Planned cross train Reality: Did weights for arms.
Tuesday Planned 6 miles Reality: 7 fairly fast miles!
Wednesday Planned 6 miles Reality: work ruined my plan. Big fat 0
Thursday Planned 5 miles Reality: 3.5 miles with the Abster
Friday Planned: cross-train ARMS and CORE Reality: 3 miles I always prefer running to strength training.
Saturday: Planned: 14 miles Reality: 14.3 miles
Sunday: swimming and/or 3 mile recovery run Reality: major core and abs + a short swim. It’s now Monday and I’m really hurtin’ from yesterday’s crunches and planks, but I will keep up with it in order to one day in the distant future be able to strut at the beach!
Week 9: Concentrate on healthy eating!
Monday: Easy 6
Wednesday: 7 miles 5 at tempo pace
