Training Week - Living in the Present

My "Living in the Past" training weeks post are "30 in 60" has sort of overtaken that...soon I will post a few weeks of "Living in the Past" to match this time of year but now I will lay out what I've been doing the last few weeks/months...actually it is not that much different pattern I've done most of my life.

Typical "perfect" week-now

AM-45-60mins total run W5,R40,W5,R5,W5 at easy pace/effort(60-70% HR, 133-148)
PM-30-60mins same as AM

AM- 60mins total run/walk at increased effort from easy to moderate (60-80% max, 133-162) in mornings I do not force anything so I may never make it to 162.
PM-30-60mins same as AM
I'm learning as I get older that anything over 162HR is only good for Interval sessions. 162HR max seems good for tempo efforts for about 20-30mins total. My probelm has been going more than the 30 mins.

AM-same as Monday
PM-same as Monday or at Fittek -25mins weights/abs(if I do the weights my run/walk is only 15-20mins max as warmup) 45 mins total

AM- same as Monday
PM- Run with the Buffalo's- 4-5miles total(try NOT to go over 162 max during run)includes .5 walk w-up & .5 walk c-dn

AM- 30-40mins very easy W5,R20-30,W5 (max 65%/140HR)
PM-walk 40 mins easy

AM-Long run/walk 8-10 miles, sometimes a 10M+ hike
Late AM-walk 60 mins, dogs = 3 miles
PM- 2-3 miles easy, depends on what else going on.

AM-60mins same as Monday
Noon- Fittek - run + weights + run/walk = 60 mins total
PM-walk dogs 40-60 mins
Late PM-30-60 mins same as Monday

You see alot of walking is included. Over the last few years of injuries and over weightness Ive learned to really enjoy walking and hiking. Also over those same years I've finally joined Debbie at the gym doing a few weights mainly high reps/low weights on the arms and leg weights for by quads (for knees) and glutes.

That's it. It adds up to be alot but as my blog says "jefflovestorun", sometimes a bit too much. I gotten be carefull but that's for another post.

30 in 60 - Day 35 - Summary of week 5 - Learning and Mistakes

Summary week 5

exercise - 818min = 13h 38m
450m run/54 miles (4th week of 50 miles in a row)
86m above 148hr = 19% of run time

I mentaly told myself it was okay to eat more junk food because I have live in reality and besides it was NCAA basketball time and eating comfort food is OK??

Learning # 1-

What I learned and observed was as soon as I ate the chinese food Friday at lunch my weekend eating went downhill, and no amount of running/walking was going to negate the BAD eating. on Friday night I felt not good, I did not even enjoy the chinese. On sat I got DP pizza and again did not really enjoy it and I felt much worst.

Results: This week my weight stayed the same(at least it did not go up) at 221lb.

Monday, I must refocus and get to eating apples instead of any peanut m&m's.

Learning # 2- hunger pains are okay.

It's amazing, my body can run/walk 50 miles a week on 1600 calories. I have plenty of energy on this eating, but have have many hunger pains. On this diet, I wake up hungry, I go to bed hungry. That seems to be the key, eating less, so I have hunger pains, which is really just my body burning the excess fat I have

My hunger pain/fat burning diet breakdown below:
2 toast w/ butter spread = 250
2c milk = 180
1 egg=70
1 banana=90 = 590 total
1 protein bar = 240 = 830cal total
6 oz chicken=240
1c rice = 180
.5c spag suace=90
2c v-8 =200
1 apple=90 = 1630 total calories
I should be able to lose 4 lbs a week when exercising nearly 2 hours average a day. Well, I will see this next week- week 6

Merrell barefoot shoe- tough glove

Taking a break from daily diet and running post to say a few words about the Merrel "Tough Glove" barefoot shoes I've been wearing for about 3 weeks.

I bought them for work, black leather upper with a "0" drop forefoot to heel shoe. In a word they are "comfortable"...By the end of the day they fit your foot like a "glove". I love the feel w/o socks but I wear socks for work. They do take and are taking getting used to. You have to change your normal walk stride from heel to forefoot to a lighter flat foot stride or you will bruise your heels. They make you s..l..o..w..down in walking. You can not walk for long until you figure this out. My feet are getting a nice therapeutic workout thru-out the day...( as a side note: a nice ice water soak in the evenings can help cure those aches and pains real quick)

I've walked a little on grass fields walking our dogs and that feels great. They make a great shoe to transition to "real" barefoot walking. The forefoot is very wide to accommodate a more natural toe spread. I was actually able to wear a 10.5 size instead of a 12 because of this.

Today I ran on the treadmill for the first time in them for 30 mins. They felt GREAT!! Makes me want to get a pair of the "trail" glove for hiking and running.

I talked my wife into getting a pair and she is loving them from the first time she put them on. She also discovered the heel issue as she noticed after a mile into her 2+ mile walk her heel was abit sore.

I, like many people these days, (see my running buddy Chris's blog)
like the barefoot feel and these shoes allow that feel as one transitions down to the ultimate in barefooting, your actual "bare" foot.
I look forward to continuing my left foot rehabilitation as I ran/walk/hike in less and less shoe, and the Merrell is the best I've worn so far.

52.6 miles run/walked

Total lbs lost in 4 weeks: 236-221 = 15 lbs, halfway to the 60 day goal. Good especially with the 2 days of bad eating around my b-day

I will need to cut back on junk food to lose the next 15lbs.
I'm running/walking more than I have in years.
My left foot is better and better gradually. My wearing the Merrell barefoot shoe at work seems to be exercising my feet because they are overall a little achy , tired but both are the same.

My Thursday run was fastest run overall in a while, recovered quick.
Heartrate is getting lower.
My Sunday's of 4 sessions is a bit crazy but as long as I keep them easy that are leading to good endurance base without alot of extended stress

30 in 60 - Day 10 - in a RUSH - a bad day

My supper of day 10 was not good but it actually started earlier. I knew I had wanted to go to our local high school basketball game. To do this, eat supper and walk or run some I would have to rush after work. So abruptly at 4:35pm I left work after working 8.5 hours, drove a bit faster home, quickly saw a left over bowl of popcorn from Debbie last night, so thought, yea, I could just eat 2 small sandwiches and popcorn instead of my regular supper...why??...this would save time.

So, I gabbed a couple handfulls of popcorn and went walking the dogs with debbie at the trails. it was sunny day for a change so we decided on the north trail but the wind was stronger than it appeared so it was abit chilly, we walked fast!!, then we decided to take a shortcut over to another trail back to the car..all the while walking I was thinking, was I going to the b-ball game or not....and do I have time to eat, watch some news....etc. etc.

Normally, my evening run/walk is easy and to relax from my day at work, it can be short as 20 mins...but tonight I was in a RUSH.

So, when I'm in a rush, I eat quick and easy stuff, so that is what I did, 2 sandwichs of bread wraped around a bison hotdog, with the rest of popcorn. This was high in salt, so to get that taste out of my mouth I had a few peanut m&m's, then a couple Reeses heart shaped pieces, boy, after not having anything like this they were very sweet, almost sickening....of course, now I had too much of a sugar taste so I topped it off with a couple pieces of bison bacon.

I then sit down intened to NOT go to the game, I felt not I quickly decided I better go to the game so I would not continue to eat.

I went to the game and did not eat anymore before bed but today was a reminder of how rushing around after work trying to do everything, quickly puts me back to "quick" eating and for me , means BAD eating. I must continue to learn to relax, slow down, and eat without rushing.

Tomorrow is a new day to get back on track.
