First things first! My crap is up on eBay… browse away.
It only took my about an hour to put everything up, eff garage sales, hopefully I will waste less by giving my crap new homes yay! It takes me at least 2 weeks to drag a box of stuff to a donation center, so this was certainly more time effective.
Sunday Workout: 9 mile run, slow pace
Hal Higdon says to run our long runs at 45-90 seconds slower than our race pace so that’s what we do. I like that there is no pressure on long run days. I get to jog along next to Phil and enjoy my run. Today was great, I had to pee around mile 2.5, which was the only annoying part of the run.
Does anyone know how to strategically eat/drink so that you don’t have to take a bathroom break during a full marathon?!
I ate my GU at our halfway point. I definitely eat Clif Shot Bloks faster than I can suck down a Gu but it was still worth the try. This Gu (jet blackberry) had 2x the caffeine of the others, so I totally had some pep in my step during the second half of the run. We initially planned on jogging a route around Cabrillo Nat’l Monument, but there is a naval base there, so that plan was a no go. Pesky barbed wire…
Changed up plans had us running Harbor Island to the San Diego Maritime Museum and USS Midway, beautiful run, we even saw a flash of blue sky. Gloomy days here in SD, sadly, unlike this picture of what Harbor Island should look like on a Summer day.
Strategically, our out and back finished at our dinner place of choice. Point Loma Seafoods!!! We DESTROYED this mess!
I found a new hot sauce I need to add to my collection. Phil wouldn’t let me steal the one on the table… sad day.
I finished my diet day off with a strong workout, and a net of 1500 calories. I didn’t eat until I was sick (sounds weird, but I *will* do this if I don’t remind myself to chill the eff out) I enjoyed my food, tried to eat it slowly and thought about the ways I will do better this week. These diet days off are a win. Also, based on all the calculations online (harris benedict etc) 1500 net calories is my “maintenance” so I try to not go over that on days off. Yes, that means that today, I ate 2500 calories.
Sure did, I earned it 🙂 Now I am going to give into this food coma…..ZZZzzzz
