Yesterday I told you about starting up strength training at Iron Tribe Fitness. I got to thinking, I have to update you on all the changes I'm making right now because the water will be a bit muddy when trying to figure out the main reason for me becoming a beast over the next few months!! :D
I have started a new way of eating (yes, again). It only took about 10 people telling me about the book "Paleo Approach" for me to decide to check it out. I couldn't put it down. It reads like a text book, but a fascinating one. It's rich with science and the reasons WHY a person (like me) can have an immune system that is attacking it's own host body! She doesn't just say "eat/don't eat these foods" she goes into what certain foods are doing in the gut. I'm all in. My husband is all in (as long as I keep him fed). My daughter is putting her foot in for now.
Day one was yesterday. It's too soon to tell anything specific, but I'm pleased with how I'm feeling this morning. I ran 16 mostly trail miles yesterday (pretty hard for me on trails). I expected to wake up pretty sore given how I felt last night, but so far so good. We'll see how I feel when I run my 11 road miles today.*
...I'm counting down the days until I start with ITF...10 days from today!
Who needs a new year to start something radically different? Not this girl!
Next time I'll tell you about the Grand Slam of races I'm doing the next three months!
