Still Kickin’

I’ve been so busy at work that I’ve had to pull all nighters. I’ve managed to get all my runs in though. Since going on Paleo I’ve had to cut back from 70 mpw to 60 mpw and I haven’t been able to run @ proper pace for my speed work. However, I did a 1/2 marathon tune up race for my 5 mile that I’m training for. I PRed at every distance on the way to the finish! A week later I tried to race a 10k and I bonked so hard I almost took a dnf at mile 2.5.

This week is supposed to be my hardest of the entire training plan. I ran a terrific set of 1 mile intervals this morning and while they were not as fast as before I started Paleo they felt like the right intensity and I finished feeling strong. This Saturday I’m going to run a 50k fat ass which should be fun except for the small blister on my big toe.

How I got the blister is an interesting story. In the 4 days after the 1/2 marathon I put on 10 lbs! I was at race weight the day of the marathon. I felt bloated and I am sure that my feet were bigger because I did a normal run in my NB 7301’s which probably have around 150-200 miles on the and I got two blisters! I may have eaten too much salty foods.

Now I’m about 2.5 lbs above my “race weight” and I don’t feel bloated anymore. I’ll finish the Paleo at the end of the month.

Keep on Runnin’
