Any January day in Nebraska that is 50 degrees with full sun, is a friend of mine!
So very glad that I did. My run proved that I definitely need to be running some of my speed training at a faster pace. My average pace was faster than I've been running my tempo miles at. :D Slower on the treadmill, I guess. It's so durn hot in the gym!!
I decided to try a gentle version of Intermittent Fasting. I will be using the 8 hour window approach and eating during only 8 hours of each day. For me, I have chosen to eat from 9am to 5pm. This will allow me to have a nice recovery meal after my morning workout, eat normally through the day, and have dinner with my family at our usual time about 5:30. As you can see, I am going to remain flexible, but ultimately, will attempt to fast for 16 hours of each day.
I plan to eat like I normally do - lots of plants and protein, limited sweets and snacks. I'm hoping that the fast will teach me a little about listening to my hunger cues and not eating when I'm really not hungry. I plan to fast like this on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of this coming week. If that works out - I may take on a 5 day week. I need to loose body fat, people...and calorie counting isn't cutting it.
Will keep ya posted. I see lots of tea being consumed in the evenings and many trips to the bathroom in the night!
