The Off-My-Game Edition:
1. This week — not awesome. After a really solid month or so of training, nothing about the past few days has been good. I’ve had a hard time getting out of bed in the morning, I’ve felt slow and sluggish and it’s showing in my performance. I know my totals for this week are going to be on the low low low side. Add in sucky weather, other daily frustrations and my desperate need for a vacation, and we’re talking CRANKY. But it can only go up from here, right?
2. I’m hoping the answer to that question is yes. Big day/exciting news tomorrow– check back for more!
3. I have become a bottomless pit. I know I’ve said this before, but I eat A LOT. I require three solid meals and multiple “snacks” — which really could be considered meals — and then I have times where I just open the fridge and eat whatever I can get my hands on. Last night, for example, I arrived home from work, starving, and thought it would be a great idea to eat a large amount of hummus and a cupcake before my 1.5 hour ride. Maybe I was wrong about that. Anyway, I’m finding that although I burn calories like crazy and don’t necessarily need to cut back on the quantity I’m getting, I probably should put a little bit more thought into the quality/type. Beth had a great post yesterday about protein, and I realized I have no idea how much fat/carbs/protein/nutrients I take in on a given day. Goal for next week: figure it out!
