I’m starting to enjoy tapering. B For example I took a6 mile run on incline 2 with no pace goal other than feeling comfortable. B It ending up being only slightly slower than my tempo run speed.
However with the lack of mileage and fear of trying anything new (I don’t want to be sore for Boston) I tried to adjust my diet accordingly. B I tried to eat like my co-workers with calories and control in mind. B I tried, but I failed.
I substitutedB my muffin + 3 cups of peanut buttered oatmeal for this:
Ignore that giant ball of cream cheese, it’s there for calcium
Lunch I tried again to be normal
Grilled Vegetables Mediterranean with Rice! B Although not nearly enough food, I have to admit this was my favorite microwave meal for under $4. B It’s under 250 calories, but that doesn’t mean much if you consume an equal amount of 250 calories bag of trail mix. B I liked how the sauce was cooked separately in that steamer thing leaving my food not that least bit soggy.
The plan for the rest of the week is
Wednesday 10 miles
Thursday 6 miles
Friday rest/cross training
Sunday easy 4
This should leave me for a total of 25 miles for the week and then the marathon!
Any suggestions for healthy lunches? B I’m bored of salads and I’m not eating to run this week. B Therefore, I will be trying to keep my apetite in check to the limited level of activity.
