I have been cheating on my nutrition and running for weeks now. It’s not that I haven’t been running at all. I have been running some. But my “official” training program for the marathon doesn’t start until July 1 so I’ve been taking it a little easy. I haven’t been keeping track of what I’ve been eating either. I’d like to think that I haven’t gone nuts but I haven’t been terribly good about it so who knows, really.
I’m keeping myself in good enough shape to run 7 or 8 miles without too much trouble though. And I’ve hovered in the same three-pound range since I haven’t been keeping track of what I’ve been eating. So I suppose I’m not all that disappointed in myself. Sometimes you need a break. And starting in July 1, I’m into it for real.
