Weekly Review: Oct 27 - Nov 2, 2014

Weekly Recap
Monday (Oct 27)
Notes: It was not my intent to have a rest day, but I had to go out to dinner with some folks from work so I just ran out of time.

Tuesday (Oct 28)
PM Workout:  Treadmill run/walk 2.59mi @ 15:26 per mi, 40 mins, 5 min walk/1 min run
Notes:  The time went faster than I expected, but I was certainly tired at the end of this.  Still not sure what's going on there.  Of course I'm still dealing with Belle having seizures as she had another one this morning.

Wednesday (Oct 29)
PM Workout:  Treadmill walk 1.79mi @ 17:08 per mi, 30 mins
Notes:  Just an easy walk today.  The knees and heel have been sore all day, but felt fine on the walk.  It's just confidence and I know I need time on my feet..

Thursday (Oct 30)
PM Workout:  Treadmill run/walk - 2.75mi @ 16:21 per mi, 45 mins, 5min walk/1 min run
Notes:  So strange because I was really in a lot of pain all day on both sides, but I felt perfectly fine during my run/walk.  I did keep it slower, but it still seemed to have drained me.  I am just struggling right now.

Friday (Oct 31)
PM Workout:  Bike - 11.5 mi, 15.4 mph avg, 45 mins, resistance level 3
Notes:  Legs felt okay through the full ride and it was just a good ride.

Saturday (Nov 1)
Notes: Got a late start to the day so I just didn't do anything.

Sunday (Nov 2)
Notes:  I think the weather was perfect for a run today, but I wouldn't really know because I  have not felt good all day.  I know what I think it wrong and I really don't need this right now, but that's the way it goes.

Run/Walk Miles: 7.13
Bike Miles: 11.50
Elliptical Miles: 0.0

Monthly Numbers

Training Notes
I have no confidence.  I feel like I will fail all the time.  The fear of failure makes me not even want to try.  It's very unlike me to feel like this, but it's been coming on more and more this year and I'm not sure how to pull out of this.  Still I do feel good about the miles I did get in this week as they felt like quality miles.

Health Watch
Still going strong with my second Whole 30.  I still haven't cheated once.  I still feel pretty good overall.  I have noticed that I get extremely tired when I exercise and some days I just want to eat constantly.  A couple of times I ended up getting a bit dizzy after a workout, but grabbing a little bite to eat solved the issue quickly. 

I faced eating out for the first time this week.  I had to go to dinner with some folks from work.  I am very proud of myself because I ordered grilled salmon with no sauce and steamed veggies.  I didn't feel deprived or want something else and I couldn't actually eat it all because the portion was much larger than I've grown accustomed to.  I guess that's a good thing!

This week will be interesting as it is another race weekend and this time I intend to use Lifesavers for fuel and it will be the first time I will be consuming sugar since I started this crazy ride.  We shall see what happens!

Weekly Review: Oct 20 - 26, 2014

Weekly Recap
Monday (Oct 20)
PM Workout: Walk - .94mi, 21 mins
Notes: The thought was good - the girls got to go out for their first walk back in AZ.  Sadly, it was 91 degrees and so it was a short hot walk.  I've been dealing with a migraine so I suppose it was good that I got anything done at all.

Tuesday (Oct 21)
PM Workout:  Treadmill walk 1.84mi @ 16:18 per mi, 30 mins
Notes:  My treadmill is toast????  I seriously have to work on this thing or there will be doing no more miles on it.  The belt is slipping so badly today that it felt dangerous.  I will have to see what I can do about this.

Wednesday (Oct 22)
PM Workout:  Bike - 7mi, 27 mins,15.4mph avg, resistance level 3
Notes:  Good ride.  I shouldn't have started the ride so hungry - I had lunch an hour early today due to work and I was starving.

Thursday (Oct 23)
Notes:  So nothing formal, but I did go outside and chop trees.  After half an hour in the 90 degree heat that was about all I could handle.  Strangely I was super hungry all day - as in stomach growling craziness.  It wasn't just stress, I was actually hungry.  I did add a snack of fruit today.

Friday (Oct 24)
Notes:  I don't know what is up, but I woke up with the hungries again today.  It was like there was not filling the tummy today - weird.

Saturday (Oct 25)
Notes: Belle kept me up most of the night with two pretty bad seizures.  This meant two things - I was so tired and I didn't want to leave her alone.  So I had the perfect excuse to not due my long run again.  Yeah - I know, that's the worst thing I could possibly do right now.

Sunday (Oct 26)
Notes:  I have been feeling off all day.  I kept trying to get the motivation to get a workout in, but it just didn't happen.  It was all I could do to go out and get the grocery shopping done.  I also spent some time working on the treadmill and I think I have it functional again.  I was able to walk and run on it for a few minutes and it didn't kill me so I'll take that as a good sign.

Weekly Numbers:
Run/Walk Miles: 2.78
Bike Miles: 7.0
Elliptical Miles: 0.0

Monthly Numbers
Run/Walk Miles:  24.67
Bike Miles: 21.10
Elliptical Miles: 0.94

Training Notes
Well, this week didn't turn out the way I had planned, but I know that I just have to keep working on it.  Wine and Dine and Avengers are coming up and they will both be challenging.  So challenging I don't know what will happen - the suspense.

Health Watch
Coming up on the end of week 2 of Whole 30 take two.  So far I haven't gone off plan at all.  I am still enjoying the food and have gotten in to the swing of shopping and cooking.  It does still cost me more to eat this way, but I have cut back on some of the organic veggies to help out some.  I have added more fruit back in to the diet - one to two a day. 

It is still killing me not stepping on the scale.  I have felt all week that I am gaining weight or at least not losing anything more.  I have not given in, but it is difficult.  Guess I still have some work to do on my mind - no big surprise there.
