*As it seems with most things going on these days, I’m a day late and a dollar short. This post *should* have been yesterday’s post. Perhaps better late than never.
I woke up Sunday as sore as I’ve been in a long time. Even my arms were sore. But, I had some more miles to go to wrap up the week. I realized Saturday that I better get used to the heat. We’ve already received an email from the Race Director of the Harding Hustle to be ready for temperatures that may be close to 100 by the finish. So, I waited until high noon, and headed over to Bommer Ridge for seven miles in the sun. Other than some sore blisters (from Saturday), the run was uneventful. I kept the pace slow (12:00 per mile). And drank about a liter of water.
That put the wraps on a good week of training (finally). Total mileage – 40.75 – a quarter mile short of plan.
ETP Day 7: Ran 7 miles per plan. Calorie budget of 1979 plus 1115 for exercise was eclipsed by Father’s Day dinner (buffet). 600 calories over budget.
- Training budget variance week to date: – 0.25 miles
- Calorie budget variance week to date: –684 calories
It was also time for weigh in – weight is up to 228 pounds (maybe water from Saturday’s workout?) but fat percentage is down to 25.9%, which means
169 pounds of quivering protoplasm, and
59 pounds sinking the ship this week.
(These number bear out my hypothesis above, since fat weight is actually going down. Whew.)
