09/15/2016 Building miles feels good, so does eating well

Today, the temps and humidity are lower.  It's really the perfect day for a run.  My 4th run of the week went great and although I initially thought I was going out for 5 miles, I ended up making it a 6 miler just because.  As the momentum builds, so does my motivation.  I don't wish the time away, but I look forward to being fit and crushing some runs.  The marathon coming up, the expo before, the winter and what I can accomplish in training those cold months, are all things I have been thinking about over the miles underfoot.  As things build, they snowball.

Simultaneously, as the running is taking shape, I am also transforming my nutrition as well.  I have been watching the caloric explosions and it is paying off.  I feel tremendously better every morning, plus I think I have lost like 8 pounds in 2 weeks.  Although that may sound far fetched or impossible, if you saw me eat this summer, you would understand how it is happening.

For those that are interested, sugar is gone from my diet except if it part of fruits, yogurt, or some natural source.  Basically all my carbs, although not many in total, are complex carbs.  Finally, I am not eating at 7:30-8pm at night.

In the next week or so, after building some more running, I plan to add some weight stuff to spur on the weight loss even more.  It's all coming together.
