  1. Felt good to rest today. Eating window is going well. A bit hungry by 8:30am but just distracting myself until 10. Window is also helping with my water consumption .
  2. Just got caught up on your thread! Great job! Hope you are enjoying your holiday !
  3. Goodness girl! Hope you get everything sorted out. Sounds scary. Be safe friend.
  4. How's the ankle? And the eating this week?
  5. picked some up today! I was so focused on just making sure I got my long run in....appears I turned my brain off this morning. I wasn't hungry, so I just went. Won't do it again! After I have an episode it takes the rest of the day to recover. Tomorrow is a rest day, so that worked out nicely This was perfect for today! Thank you for sharing. The whole time, I was thinking, "How am I going to run a 1/2 marathon?", "Wait, didn't I just rock an 8 mile run out 3 days ago?", then it was, "Sifter, you are a dumbass. For real, you didn't eat! What were you thinking? Oh, that's right, you didn't think." Ahhhh, glad my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad run is over. Looking forward to my 4 miles on Thursday! Thanks for the encouragement PB!
  6. 8/20/2013 - 7.6 miles (5 ran, 2.6 walk) -- was supposed to do 8. Body adjusting to my eating window of 10am-7pm. Was not smart and had hypoglycemic episode.
  7. worst. run. ever. this morning. Needed to do my long run today b/c it is the only day I could fit it in. Earlier in the week than I would have liked -- I usually complete long runs on the weekend -- but we are traveling this weekend, so I wanted to make sure to get it in. All around poor planning -- just did a long run on Saturday, started my new eating window of 10-7 Sunday, and I decided the only time I could get my 8 miles in was at 8:30 this morning. ughh, so i hadn't eaten in 13.5 hours and was a bit over-hydrated. Needless to say I had a hypoglycemic incident at mile 4. I stopped for a water break and stretched a little. Ran a mile further, side cramp, muscle twitches in upper thighs, cotton mouth and a bit of dizziness. Walked the the rest of the way home for a total of 7.6 miles. Ate two clementines and feel better all ready. Note to self: While implementing your fasting window of 10am-7pm, you must workout in the afternoon or evening b/c of your hypoglycemic tendencies. The window is fine as long as you don't over exert yourself toward the end of your fast. Next week do not fast the day of your long run, if you have to do it in the morning.
  8. 8/18/2013 - Sunday - rest day 8/19/2013 4 miles - treadmill - 40 minutes60 push-ups (54 standard, 6 knee) -- 12 / 13 / 10 / 9 standard, 1 knee / 10 standard, 5 knee.
  9. 4 miles done. 10am-7pm eating window went well today too. I was a paleo all-star! Curious to see if I am starving tomorrow morning. Loaded up on protein -- chicken, tuna, turkey jerky, cheese, protein shake, etc. Feel full, thats for sure! Did push-ups today too. Can really tell that I lost some strength, as I am still on the same workout I was on several weeks ago. Today I did a total of 60 push-ups (54 standard, 6 knee) -- breakdown as follows: 12 / 13 / 10 / 9 standard, 1 knee / 10 standard, 5 knee. Exhaustion test scheduled for next Monday. At the end of the last challenge I max'd at 20. Hoping I will still be able to do that next Monday
  10. Griz, you made it through hump week and you are doing great! Get back into your groove with the runs....what can we do to help? I know for me, scheduling them into my calendar really helps b/c its in writing. In writing ='s meeting, todo, commitment, etc in my mind. What will make it more concrete for you? You really are doing great! Keep it up.
  11. Thank you ladies! Diet was not fantastic last week, but I laid out my plan for this week. Today is the start of my fasting experiment. My eating window is 10am-7pm. Was hungry this morning at 8:00, but drank some water to hold myself off. Morning time is always so busy, so holding off until 10 should not be that hard. Had 2 eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, and 1/2 cup blueberries at 10. A delicious spinach salad with grilled chicken, walnuts, red onion, and avocado awaits me when I get hungry again. As for paleo, I am taking PB's suggestion of "non-paleo allowance cards" -- I get a total of 4. They are used for specific items -- entree, dessert, sweet treat, etc. Anything over 4 will be in the red. 5 = C, 6 or more = F. The eating window will hopefully help me keep this under control. We shall see. Looking forward to tracking progress. Fitness goals for last week were good. Added core work back in and got all of my runs in. Runs are scheduled for this week: 4 today, 8 tomorrow, rest Wed, 4 Thurs, and 3 Friday -- total mileage 19 miles. Rocking the internet goal, but missing my time on Nerd Fitness Trying hard to keep up with everyone! Good luck this week friends!
  12. Fantastic Phoenix! Keep it up. You own that BMI!
  13. 8/17/2013 -- 8 miles - outside -- 1:22:18 -- great run!!
  14. And we FIGHT!!!!!! CHARGE! The battle continues.....
  15. Absolutely fabulous run this morning. 8 miles in 1:22:18, so around a 10:20 pace. Body felt great, felt like I could keep going, and breathing was good. If I would have had a partner I believe I could have carried on a conversation. Sun was shining, breeze, and about 64 degrees. Took some new trails too. I love my Garmin. It gives me the freedom to be adventuresome on my long runs. Feels good to be done for the week too! Feeling accomplished
