Time for a mid-week update:
A little quieter work schedule means I can get back to blogging a little more often. Yay! Right?
This week I weighed myself for the first time in about 3 months. I went up by about 10 pounds. Ack! So, back to logging what I eat to get control of it. I've concluded that I was snacking way too much without thinking about it. I also need to weigh myself a little more often to nip these things in the bud before it becomes a problem. Spending the summer working on the road and eating out a lot didn't help either.
Lately I've been working on keeping the easy runs easy. I have a tendency to just take off at my normal pace and before I know it my easy run has turned into a medium effort run. That's counterproductive and increases my risk of injury. What I didn't realize was how much mental concentration it takes to slow down and keep to an easy effort. By the end my brain is tired.
In October I am contemplating taking two weeks off from running entirely. I'm sensing that a break like that would do my body good. More on this later.
So, what's up with you all?
