A good week

So I had a good week of training - running, lifting and eating right (if possibly a little less than I should've.) I feel like I've made a good start at things. I'm just vaguely following a training plan, not forcing myself to hit specific numbers and times, but really making the effort to do every workout. Had a good interval session on Tuesday, a nice easy run on Wednesday, and a progression run on Thursday that I didn't feel very strong for, but got through. Today, then, I had a long run to do.

Since I'm going to be doing more trail running this year, with 4 trail half marathons spread in the spring and fall, I want to get off the pavement more for my long runs. So today, I went on one of my favorite trail runs - from home, up Keystone Street and then up Keystone Canyon, then across to the top of Evans Creek Canyon and down that. Great trails, a nice morning for a run. I'm pretty sure I didn't have enough fuel in me with me reduced diet, though, and felt like I was heading toward a bonk for a while. Made it out fine, although I did have one fall right near the top of the main climb. Got a little scrape on my knee, but caught myself OK.

Looking forward to tomorrow, when I'll "step outside my comfort zone..."

Ah, you changed your picture to one of downtown Reno! That's nice one too. :) I'm glad you had a good running week, and the
perseverance to stick to your diet too~ :)
