View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day
Hello! Had a another 8 mile run this morning. 4 miles were at tempo pace but divided into 2 miles.
1st 2 mile tempo run was at 10:46 average pace and the 2nd one was at 10:49 average pace. I think this is the first time I didn't curse out my running coach while running because I felt pretty good the entire time. I cannot believe I am improving my speed like this. I remember when I was excited to just get under a 12:00 average pace. I never imagined I could get under 11:00 average pace. Just think what I could do if I dropped....even 10 pounds.
Almost the hardest part the tempo run is doing the 2 mile cool down afterwards. I think I am just ready to be done and it feels like it takes FOREVER.
Next week Thursday tempo run is 10 miles (6 miles at tempo pace no breaks!).
I will meet with my running coach face to face tomorrow as my current plan is almost over.
Eating has been OK. Not as much stress eating yesterday, just a little. Today I am following the nutrionists plan to eat back all the exercise calories. I am wondering if this might help me not to stress eat. I just need to make sure those calories are good calories!
Oh.....tonight we have our first biggest loser challenge! It should be fun.
