Well, I am not running a half this weekend. I am just not feeling it (the course – I have run the event before, the travel, the hotel) BUT, I think I will try to race a 5-k in about three weeks. It should be fun. My speed is present for shortish bursts so a 3.1 mile race might be just the thing. Plus it’s only a couple miles from my house (not 120).
I had my body composition tested first thing Monday morning. In the past six weeks I lost four pounds of body fat and gained back about four pounds of lean body mass. Perfect! My body cannibalized way too much muscle during marathon training. Good nutrition and consistency are key! I am hoping to do a full post on that soon.
Enjoy the beautiful fall weather while you can! Winter is coming…..
