AM- 9 mi wandering around Logan. There were some HS girls and a coach doing repeats on the track at 5:14 am- I want to know how that coach motivates the girls to get up for a workout that early!
PM- I was planning to run 10 miles. However, I was exhausted right from the start. This seems to occur to me more than normal recently, and I don't think it's overtraining or burnout. I thought as I ran and think I know the answer- my mileage is 90+ mpw these days, but I have barely increased my eating. For example, I estimate I ate 2500 calories yesterday- not near enough for 16-20 miles per day. Hence, the fatigue and recent weight loss (3 lbs in 2 weeks). I had a talk with Marci, and she'll buy me a lot more food. Anyways, I ended up running 3.5 miles in about 35 min (I told you I was tired), then was forced to walk the last .5 back. Sad. But hopefully an increased awareness of caloric intake will stymie this problem and let me return to my normal energy levels.
On a related note, I just signed up for the Bear 100 today. My 2 year build up to this race will finally culminate in 12 weeks!
