Biking and Running - It's Getting Busy
I seem to be back to a lot of biking and running with a bit of swimming thrown in. One day this past week I managed to do all 3 although not close together with the swim. I had an afternoon appointment so I got a ride and a run in on the bike path. Bliss.
I had a good ride close to home. It was fine. Then I had a short run at home. Not so good. 6 became 4.
Then Saturday came and an 8 mile run turned into a 7 mile run where I had to walk up every hill and I was dragging. (I never don't run what I planned. Well, I guess I do but it is unusual and new.) I got home and plopped on the couch. I have changed my eating and I am still trying to figure it all out. I have to think it played into my low energy but I'm not giving up yet. I talked to my mentor (Jameson) and emailed Super Kate for some ideas. I am trying to do Paleo although not quite 100%. (but very close) I have to say I feel better than I have GIwise and some problems I had have gone away. I am losing weight and feeling full. But I need to work on more water, more calcium and ???? Suggestions welcome. I could use meal suggestions too. I am cooking up a storm but don't have a ton of ideas. Sweet potatoes are my friend for sure.
Today I did a 52 mile bike ride with no problems. I didn't go fast but that wasn't the plan. I did hills fine and didn't notice any missing energy. It was a gorgeous gorgeous day here in the 802! I took lots of time for pictures and relaxing.
Then Jameson came home to help me celebrate Mother's Day. Of course, Jaxon too! So it was a good one, just missing my girl.
