Equally important, I've been focusing on my diet. Let's face it, a diet of coffee and beer just isn't going to cut it for Tough Mudder. I know I don't eat enough calories during the day, even during my more sedentary phases. Yes, I eat healthier foods just not enough of them. Now, I'm really trying hard to take lots of "snack" breaks instead of just "coffee" breaks and although it can be really disruptive to my coding train of thought, it seems to be helping.
Below are my runs for the week. These are in addition to Colbeck-style workouts for all-around conditioning.
5 km - 00:24:00
10 km - 00:49:13 (I really though I had Shawn's time beat on this one - so disappointed)
5.2 km - 00:24:30
21 km - 01:53:47 (My legs shutdown at this point and I struggled to walk the rest of the way home)
And since this blog has gotten far to wordy here's my inspirational video for the day. Yes, this song is on my running playlist and it is an awesome last mile song!
