I had today off, so I was able to sleep in until 7:30am. Nice, but I didn’t get to be until later than usual, so it all worked out. I ran a tiring 9 miles today, probably the longest I’ve ran in a couple months. The sun was out, and it was around 74°, so that is about 20° higher than my normal morning run. I felt zapped, I should have taken some endurolytes with me, at mile 7 I got a little calf cramp, but it went away quickly.
I ventured out on my run to new paths and new trails. I found a nice peaceful place next to the stream for some breathing exercises and mind clearing 🙂
I also went to the gym tonight, put in a couple more miles, lifted a little and then sat in the steam room for about 10 minutes. The gym is really quiet on Friday nights.
Here is my menu for the day, I actually skipped breakfast today.
Pre-Run: golden raisins
During Run: Strawberry/Banana GU
Lunch: Basmati Rice, ground turkey, mushrooms & lite cranberry juice
Dinner: Black Beans, Ground Turkey, 3 oz chicken, & Mushrooms & Lite Cranberry juice

So, tomorrow will be the end of week 1.
