to appease my sanity during this marathon struggle i needed to go long this morning.
during my drive home last night i decided with the cost of fuel at an all time high i need to start making some greener choices. my decision? i need to ride or run more as a way of commuting between work and home. not the easiest thing to do when work is a solid 30+ miles away. while i have run the full way to work i decided to take it a little easier on myself this morning by driving down the hill to make the run a short 25 miles. the trip home will only include an additional 6 or so miles as i will catch the train back to the car.
diet wise i am still planning on maintaining a primal selection of sorts but am allowing a window of carb consumption during the run and in the hour or two immediately following to allow some glycogen resplenishment to my heavily depleted muscles. i expect this is similar to what friel recommends in his book on the paleo diet for athletes. i will have to get my hands on it.
weight: 166lb (-6)
sleep: 4 hrs

snack: almonds, carrots
dinner: steak casserole w/ veggies
