Well, today ended my first week back after a week off. 26 miles. If I wouldn't have missed Thursday, I'd be at 30 miles. Not bad for the first week of a new regimen. Today was a four mile recovery run. I went to Crystal Cove and ran on the bluff above the ocean. I kept my heart rate below 135 bpm most of the time (except on uphill portions) and averaged 133 bpm for the duration of the run.
The biggest change I noticed this past week was my appetite. All week I have been inhaling anything close. I'm sure I've put on a couple of pounds. I'll start tracking my intake again on SparkPeople and get that under control this week.
