I have gained a few pounds. I know that 5 pounds isn’t a terribly huge deal, but it is to me because they’ve hung around for quite a few weeks now – they would like to be here to stay. This means I’ve been above my threshold weight most of the summer, which is sort of depressing. This is expected when I train for distance runs because I’m hungry all of the time, but the truth is I’ve been eating like I don’t have to worry about what I’m eating, and I’m just not built that way.
So, in the interest of getting things back on track, I’m starting tomorrow. The plan is in place and I will measure in and post starting stats before the day ends tomorrow. It’s a longer plan than I’m usually up for (I like an 8-10 week plan), but it goes through 11/2 (12 weeks) to finish up my current race schedule. After that, I’ll kick off something else for the new year!
Here is the plan for now, but I may tweak it tonight.
