Today was the first day of turning around sugar overload. I realized that I was in a bad place yesterday after having to run to McDonalds for Sweet Tea after my run. It wasn't that I just drove by and thought it would be nice to stop. The fact was I drove out of my way to get it because of an overwhelming craving. I felt like an addict that needed sugar.
So today was Detox Day 1. I began trying to eliminate as much sugar from my diet as possible. By the afternoon, I was going nuts. Tonight the craving continued. Maybe just something small. But so far so good. I wonder how many days until I notice a difference.
I need to change the subject.
Yesterday was my first day of Chicago Marathon training. The options for week one was 5,7,or 9 miles. I went with the 5 since I had raced on Saturday. The legs were tired but not bad at all. My biggest question was which pace group to train with. I opted for the 11:30 per mile group. The goal is to do your long runs at the pace you want to do the marathon. I just hope to break 6 hours but at that pace I would run a 5:02 Marathon. I will just take one week at a time.
Waddling and trying not to think about sweets...........
