Health Screening / This Week's Miles

We had a health screening at work today and I learned my BMI is 20.2 and 19 of my 128 lbs are fat, 15.2%. Since that's normal for my age, I'm hopeful that some of these extra pounds are actually turning into muscle instead of flabby mush. It's all a mind game for me.

I opted out of this morning's run to get more sleep so I am vowing to run 12 miles this afternoon after work. It should be in the mid 50s and sunny out.

This is what I'd like to get in for the rest of the week, totaling 50 mi:

Wednesday = 4 mi a.m.
Thursday = 3 mi a.m./ 6 mi p.m.
Friday = 3.5 mi a.m.
Sat = 18.5 mi
Sun = REST

It's good for a ultrarunner to have some fat, a fuel store. I hit really low, maybe 2% fat. I need too fuel a lot I training or race. It can be really hard keeping on top of what I burn and take in.

Looks like a run is planned for a long distance!

Cutting out junk food is a great start and you'll likely see progress right away as a result.Drink plenty of water or other calorie-free beverages.Think about what you can add to your diet, not what you should take away.Alliancemedinet
