I also think that this will make me enjoy running more. If I know I can go out for a slow, lazy run, I won't dread it so much. However, if I do this, it means I really have to do planned speedwork every week--Tempo runs and interval training. I'm training for a 10k that is on October 9th, so I think I'll try training this way and see how it goes.
Easy runs- 65-75% of max heart rate
Tempo runs- 87-92%
So anyways, my stats for yesterday's run:
Yesterday was another food temptation I had to pass up. Whenever this one guy on the Detroit Tigers hits a home run, all the A&W's (around here anyway) sell coney dogs for 25 cents the next day. My kids wanted to go for lunch, so I took them to A&W. They each ate 2 whole coney dogs by themselves! I sat and watched.
But I stayed on track all day and counted my calories. I didn't want to eat much after my super filling dinner, so my calories were a little low.
Breakfast- Cinnamon Raisin Granola with milk and coffee (275)
Lunch- tuna sandwich and grapes (363)
Dinner- lentil chili with cheese (401)
Snack- Ezekiel cinnamon raisin toast with peanut butter (290)
TOTAL: 1328 calories
Exercise- Ran 2 miles.
Jerry was hard at work all last night typing a guest post for you. I think he was having way too much fun doing it. I'll probably post it tomorrow.
If you are a runner, do you run your easy runs and long runs much slower than normal?
