I ran the 1500m and the 800m today. My races were pitiful to say the very least.
I felt drained. I don’t think it’s from the food–I’ve gotten very little sleep throughout the week, I stood for hours in the cold Thursday night at the high school track meet, I’ve been stressed with projects and homework, and I’ve increased my mileage quickly on top of cross training.
It was cold, windy, and rainy outside—nothing too surprising for spring in Michigan. But the weather reflected my mood and my day–which was just as miserable as my eating habits.
Breakfast: fruit again and a few raw food bars. I felt especially hungry and ate more once we arrived at the outdoor track meet at Northwood. I felt guilty eating these Larabars though because they were a lot of calories and I’m sure I wasn’t truly hungry—I was probably just too tired.
