Day 483- Ran 5 miles in the rain this morning. First time doing this. It was not as bad as I thought it would be. After about 4 miles I thought to myself I should of wore my hat, daaaaauuuuuuu. Funny thing is the rain rolling down my head did not bother me, BTW I'm bald, so everything rolls off my head. The rain did not burn like sweat, so all is good and the rain actually cooled me as I ran.

That was my 6th run this week (28 mi) and my last run before next 5K on Sunday. It is a larger race and I hope to PR again as I work towards my goal of running sub 20mins by the end of the season (Nov?). Not that I want to jinx myself, but I think I am going to hit it sooner than that. I am getting my routine down pretty good and come race day I know I will feel great! I did have 2 bad runs this week that made me feel like 'why are you doing this?' One was my speed workout, it just hurt.... I think part of it had to do with food I was eating and I may not have been eating enough. My wife and I had our ice cream night last weekend and I got one that had a brownie on as the base and I felt it hit me like a truck the next day. Amazing how a little processed food and screw you up when you are clean. I am sure that brownie was pure fakeness. BTW, we only do ice cream about once a month. I rarely eat any dairy anymore unless it is in something that I don't realize. I do have a little cheese here and there on my meals that I eat on the road.

I started tracking food again in hopes of finding the intake sweet spot for my training. That brings me to the topic of, what do you eat as energy food when you are eating a 'real' diet? I am having a hard time finding things that are not loaded with carbs and high cals. I did start eating a lot of dates, they do great before and after a workout.

So much more I want to type about, but work calls......

Ask 'can it be fixed?' before you start... (more to come on this.)

If I need fast energy combined with slow release, I grab one of my homemade peanut butter booster bars. I make them with honey, peanut butter, oats, lots of dried fruit & seeds & lemon/orange zest. They are delicious but maybe a bit too high in carbs for your liking. But I know whats in them & its all good organic ingredients. Oh & I am taking ACV for just over a week now. Thank you for stirring my interest. My digestive system has settled, my skin condition on my foot is improving & most amazingly: How well I recover after exercise. I had a heavy kettlebell session on wednesday & trained with my PT yesterday. Usually I my muscles are a little tight but I just feel great. THANK YOU :)
