So I've decided to keep a journal outlining my 10 week training for the Huffing for Stuffing Thanksgiving day race instead of a monthly journal.
I'm going to use this week to get ready to start my training next week - so figuring out my GPS watch, heart rate monitor, setting goals, looking/understand the workouts, etc.. and then next week I'll start Week 1 of the "Own It - 10K plan" from "train like a mother".
weight: 132.5 (probably a drop from the big run the day before - my goal is to keep it in the 132's till next Monday)
Goals: track food 4 days, prepare to start plan next week
Exercise: 4 mile run I read somewhere that you should run a slow "recovery run" the day after a race to help your muscles loose the lactic acid that causes them to be stiff and sore. That's a big lie - I ran at lunch and by the afternoon I could barely get out of my work chair! I have to admit that it did feel uplifting to do it though!
Calories: awfull! I was doing o.k. till I got home and had to make caramel corn for Caden to bring to daycare for his birthday treat. I ate a lot of it in the process of making it... it doens't have a single redeming quality to the recipe either! Oye!
