So, I got back from work this afternoon, and an interesting thought occurred to me: “Man, I’m really, really looking forward to running.”
Funny thing, though – I was.
My lovely wife’s gonna blush, but one of my New Year’s resolutions has been to ask “What Would Missy Eat” (WWME) before I put anything in my mouth. I’ve talked about it in the past, but running with her over Christmas really made it stick for me. Here’s the diet program:
- Lotsa veggies
- Nothing but whole wheat
- A little bit of lean meat
- Never skip dessert.
- Next to no fast food
I’m not religious about it, but I’m feeling better after a week of it. Haven’t had a chance to hit the scale, but I think it’ll be a pound or so.
And the run? Well, it was the first “Run Less, Run Faster” workout in preparation for the Oklahoma City marathon. Mile repeats – 10 minutes warmup, 3×1600 repeats with 1 minute rest, and 10 minutes cooldown. I did it, more or less, but it was probably closer to being 3×1400 repeats with about 3 minutes recovery between them.
But the run felt good, and I man, I’ve had some endorphins working at the end. Yeah, this running and eating well is good stuff.
