Run: 4 Miles
Before I get to my run this past weekend was a lot of fun goofing around at my sister's (Marcy Krueger) house.
See, Marcy Krueger, my sister, asked me why I never put her name (Marcy Krueger) on my blog. So, there you go Marcy Krueger!:) My other sister Connie Wolfe asked the same question. Ok, family tree time, Marcy is married to John whos only flaw is the fact that he is a USC (Gamecock fan) and a Green Bay Packer fan. Marcy and John have three kids, John Edward, David, and Ellie. Gracie had a blast playing with her cousins all afternoon. Connie came with her buddy "Hank", 10 year old black lab. My brother Alan also made the trip over to Marcy's house. He resides in the sunshine state and is proudly an Eagles, Phillies, Flyers, and Sixers fan like myself. See, you don't understand we were born Philly fans!:)
Anyway, it was really nice to be able to spend time with family and I hope we didn't get the kids to "jacked up" for you Marce and John? Thanks for the afternoon!
Yesterday was back to the grind, with a full day of work and class at night. Got out of class right at 8pm and raced home and was out pounding the pavement by 9pm. What a great night for a run with the temp right around 77 degrees and a slight breeze. No ipod, just me and the open road. I did experience some slight knee sorness right around the 3.5 mile mark. After my cooldown and stretching it seem to go away and is not giving any trouble at all this morning. I hope tonight's run will go just as smooth. I probably won't get home tonight until 10pm so it will be a late run by moonlight!
My nutrition was super clean yesterday with 65% of my calories coming from carbohydrates. I am still dropping weight and hope to be down under the 200 pound mark by the end of the week. I'm looking to drop at least 10 pounds for the month of October and 5 additional pounds before the race on the 10th of November. I have very carefully calculated my food intake and will not be afraid to up the calories if I start to suffer on my runs. I will be eating a surplus of calories for my long runs with the additional days severely cut back. Again, I will not be afraid to change that if I start to suffer. With the calories a little low yesterday my run went really well last night.
I'm getting excited about the fishing trip this weekend and Friday can't come fast enough. I'm really looking forward to running my 12 miles on flat ground Sunday morning. Should be a fun weekend. Well, back to work I must go, have a great Tuesday. - Jason
