Ship’s Log–May 12th


I managed to plod through this week’s long run today, but I can’t say it was a good time. The weather is getting warmer and more humid, which makes running just a bit more work…plus my legs are still tired from Saturday’s seminar. But I did managed to finish the run and keep my pace under the target for my training plan.

Today was the first time I ever tracked my calories on a long run day. I was surprised to see how hard it was to refuel. The plan I’m following allows for a daily 500 calorie deficit, and even then I was struggling to meet the target. This does make me wonder if my struggles with overeating the day after a long run are due to me improperly refueling the day of the long run. I guess we’ll have to see if I wind up stuffing my face all day tomorrow after having done so today.
