Day 1....exhaustion!

Woke up at 5:00am and met Christina at the gym. I planned on getting 3 miles in but because we had to be at work early and I heard the tollway was closed and there was going to be crazy traffic, I decided to only complete 2 miles. It sucks but, can't be late! I'll make sure and get 3 in from now on. I did 2 miles @ 11:57 pace. I'm actually pretty pumped about starting off a speed training season in the 11's pace range. I'm curious to see how fast I can get by May.

Today was rough. Didn't fall asleep till after 11pm last night so I was going on about 6 hours sleep. This is usually no big deal but keep in mind that I've been getting 10-14 hours of sleep the past 2 weeks so it was an adjustment. (Yes, I'm a bum). I felt great this morning but about 10:30am, I was getting really tired. Was pretty much a zombie all day and still feel like crap. I'm going to go to bed super-early tonight and then I'll have to get up at 4:45am tomorrow to hit an earlier workout because I have to be at work even earlier tomorrow. There's just something messed up about getting up when there is a 4 in the time! GRRR!!! My eating has been great and I got my workout in so I'd say it was a good day. Hopefully by tomorrow I will feel much better and in more of a routine.

Nutrition for today:

Fiber one muffin

Lowfat cheese

1/2 cup of lean meat chili
Fruit cup

Baked cheetos

2 lean pockets
(I know this is a lot, but I had the calories and was starving so why not?)

100 calorie cheezits

Hit my perfect calories for today! :)


  1. Awesome! I'm impressed that you and Christina are getting your workouts in so early.... keep it up!

  2. Anxious to hear about tomorrow's success.
