Oh my gosh - the last few days I have been craving bad cookies, eating bread with butter and cheese (my pregnancy cravings!) and wanted to bake like mad (I baked some somewhat normal cookies last night but they weren't worth it). I have to say that hemp fudge and oatmeal "cookies" aren't really doing it for me this week! I've been as good as possible and made a smoothie when I was starving at 5pm today, but by 7/8 pm I just want a big warm chocolate chip cookie. What gives?
This week I'm also kind of feeling the burn. I'm tired. My body is tired. I've been getting up at 4:30 so that I can get in an extra little session of weights or abs before swimming. Monday was arms, and the swim kicked me in the butt. With the time change, it was a small group, and a faster guy swam with me and had no mercy. I was DYING. Tuesday was the hill workout. Again, I got my a** kicked. I actually got frustrated and wondered why I was there. What a fast group! Today was legs and swimming - I felt sluggish this morning then had a strong dualie run with the kids in the nice weather.
I was thinking the dualie was not worth it, but with this weather I think I am going to love it. I was pleased to be running at a decent pace with them today!
10:11/9:36/9:13 were my mile splits for 3 miles and average pace of 9:45.
Tomorrow I might run easy instead of tempo to listen to my tired body! I don't know what's going on - maybe I need to check my nutrition and make sure I'm eating the right things and enough of them.
