Lincoln Marathon Training Week 10
Plan: Hal Higdon Marathon 3 plan
What I did yesterday: 4 mile pace run which felt pretty good except- you guessed it, the dreaded calf soreness. I'm going to sit down and figure that out at some point.
Today: I did thirty easy minutes on the bike this morning before work while I baked some homemade granola for next week. I omitted the nuts this time, which I usually include and really enjoy. But I have gained about three pounds and I need to cut out some of the higher calorie foods for a while. I'm okay with it going into my 5k tomorrow - I always run better when I've not been restricting foods - but next week I would like to trim down a bit. It's a fine line for me between eating enough and eating too much. I know calories (healthy plant-based calories) are good when you're doing long runs every weekend plus five workouts a week. But do I NEED the nuts and the avocados? Probably not. In fact, I probably eat twice the amount I should.
Tomorrow: 5k, baby! My goal is to finish in 25:30.
