PM: 15 miles.
Grading myself for week 3:
Mileage (90%)- My mileage is decent and I am on pace for the 110 I want this week. Next week is shaping up to be a down mileage week, which is right on time given my training.
Speed (60%)- I have run more honest intervals and done 4 mile sessions twice, which I am happy about. I would like to nail a speed workout tomorrow, so that's a goal on the agenda. I am a little peturbed about missing speedwork on Sunday, but with the mileage increase it is a good thing- I will just plan some good stuff next week.
Nutrition (60%)- Has been much better. Less sugar/simple carbs, no over-eating, and a good amount of fat, vegetables, and protein. I am transitioning well, but can noticeably do a better preparation job with my protein macros to prevent muscle loss and aid in recovery particularly in that 1-hour-after-workout time slot.
Water/electrolyte balance has been very strong for me, which has aided in feeling pretty bouncy and ready for my runs.
Racing weight (40%)- This week I again am focused on a reduction in overall calories. Goal weight loss is 3 pounds healthily. Losing weight is about as challenging as I remember. Total weight loss- 7 lbs, with 13lbs to go.
