Training and eating

So I promised myself I would keep blogging after Whole30 and here I am. I don’t know how consistent I will be because honestly, I’m a bit critical of my writing abilities. I just don’t think I express myself well so I tend to just not write.

Since David and I ended Whole30 last week, we spent 5 days eating basically whatever and we felt like shit. Now we’re back to Whole30 ish – I’d say 85% whole 30 and 15% whatever. Our goal is to be “paleo” ish at home and then treat when we eat out. I bought WellFed 2 with this in mind and we’re going to try 1 or 2 new recipes each week. We had the Italian Pork Roast this week and it was great. It made enough meat for everyday! I’ve been mixing it with applesauce for lunch.

Marathon training is going well.

Last Friday I did 9.5 miles on the treadmill. Saturday, 5.75 easy on the treadmill. I missed Sunday’s long run though due to icy conditions and snow. Tuesday was an easy 3 miles on the treadmill. Last night I did a fun 6.9 mile workout:

15 minute warmup at 6.0 (10:00)

3min @ 8:03
2min @ 8:31
1min @ 7:30
2min @ 8:31
2min @ 8:21
2min @ 8:03
2min @ 7:45
2min @ 8:31
1min @ 7:18
2min @ 8:31
2min @ 8:21
2min @ 7:56
2min @ 8:31
3min @ 7:14
2min @ 8:03

15 min at 6.5 (9:13)

I found it here: http://www.runnersworld.com/workouts/how-real-runners-train-treadmills?page=single and will add 5 minutes of intervals every week I think. It’s a good way to break up the treadmill monotony.

So I’m carrying on with the paleo ish eating and the marathon training. Feeling good!
