Got out for a 60 min run today. 17F, ran with some of the Y-Tri club girls. I skipped the intervals as I was the run “leader”. Instead I worked to maintain a solid Z2 pace. I came in with a 9:21/mile avg, spot on my current Z2 pace and felt really good the entire route. I may have been able to raise it to 9:15, and still stay in my Z2 HR zone. The entire run felt really good and strong, with solid form; feelings that are becoming the norm over the last three runs. I think that the 5lb weight loss over the last two weeks is really helping. I’m working through the Whole30 program. I’m hitting 80-85% of the goals, really focusing on zero sugar, zero dairy, zero grains. I fall off the wagon now and again, but it’s by conscious choice and I try to limit the damage by focusing on portion sizes.
On the blog front, I’m playing with a cleaner look to the site, and eliminating some of the extra widgets. More work to come.
