Day Ninety-nine (Sa, 110409) — Short Today as Real Life Trumps Blogging

Sorry folks but this is going to be short because I have LOTS of family stuff to do today.

Saturday, would, up until now, have been a Free Day for me.

This week I switched to Free Meals: one Wednesday and one yesterday because I ran and worked out on both days.

No running or working out today ergo no Free Meal.  Simple.

Tomorrow is my fourth mud run (second this year, since I started 4HB) so I’ll get a Free Meal tomorrow.  Cool. =)

Cheers and work strong!

110409 Results Graphs

Nice to see I lost all that I gained last week, even though what it really means is I’ve only now returned to where I was two weeks ago (note the horizontal red line).

Still, I think this week’s experiments (Cissus every meal, Free meals, protein powder breakfasts) warrant a second week of trial.

I ran 11.5 miles this week, worked out (Occam’s Protocol) twice, and had two Free Meals.  One of those Free Meals, the larger one, was Friday night.

If I move my workouts (and associated Free Meals) to Monday and Thursday instead of Tuesday and Friday, there will be more time between a Free Meal and my weigh in and I think the results will be even better.

All in all, I’ll call this a victory and see if I can do it again next week.

(If so, two more weeks of this will mean I can break that darn 210 lbs / 27% barrier.  Work strong, me! ;-))
