Another week and come and gone. Week 6 of my training is over. This week was another rough week. The weather wasn't good, the gym was closed, it was too cold to run outside, my new work schedule is taking up more time, etc.
I ran 16.54 miles this week. I was aiming for a little more, but I guess I should just be happy with what I actually got in. I burned 2610 calories. Pretty good. Nothing much has changed on the eating front...I guess I just need a little more guidance with this part of the training.
Today's long run was a killer for me. I ran 7 miles outside on a local 10k course (then we just added a little more to make it to 7 miles) with Positive A. I'm so glad that her and I have been doing our long runs together, b/c I know that I would never be able to run on a treadmill for that long. She pushes me when I need it, and I push her when she needs it. Positive A did most of the pushing this week. About 1 mile into the run I got a cramp in my stomach that just wouldn't go away. it was also cold out, and I couldn't find my beanie that covers my ears. I got this HORRIBLE headache. Then I became nauseated and light-headed and pretty dizzy. That all started around 3 miles...and lasted the REST of the run. It was NOT a fun run at all. I had never been happier to end a run...but, the good thing, is that I pushed through and completed it. I'm hoping for a better run (8 miles) next Sunday.
Anyone have any specific tips on nutrition during training for me? My diet is pretty bad right now. (Probably why I'm not losing anymore weight).
