Even in two weeks I can tell I am improving already!!
3) Eating. I have gained ten pounds since the end of October, from a low of 110.6 to now 120.8. Most of it is muscle... I think. I eat meat every day now, but still not very much dairy. Other staples include rice, Clif bars, and almond butter sandwiches, along with eggs, kale, salmon and beans. I do eat beef and pork every week as well.
4) Drinking. I can't remember the last day that went by where I didn't consume one or more alcoholic beverages. I'm ok with that. Also, box wine.
5) Planning. Planning a race is my favorite. From picking out a race, to analyzing the course, to stalking people in the list of last years' race results. I originally set a goal for Sedona to finish in under 4 hours. My past marathon performances were 4:03 in LA and 4:09 in Lincoln. However, Lincoln was a MUCH better performance. Sedona is hilly...
So I still have some hill work to do. But I think my sub 4-hour goal is still achievable, since I'm running better than ever.
This weekend - last long run. Twenty miles and needs to include hills for sure. I also have to keep up with foam-rolling and stretching to keep my foot and hip from going to shit.
