Downsizing Don – 05/11/2012

End of week 23 weigh-in – 263 lbs. – that’s 3 lbs. lost this week after the gain last week and a total of 26 since December 1st.

Hit the gym Wednesday morning and ended up cutting it short and missing work with some sort of stomach bug.  That cleared up over the course of the day yesterday.  I did get in 35 minutes on the treadmill (2.88 miles) and 30 minutes of weight training.  This morning it was pure cardio – 65 minutes on the treadmill (5.59 miles – avg. HR 145)

I’m 17 days from the 10K race in Colorado – the Bolder Boulder.  I’ll be taking in more water than normal every day over the next couple of weeks.  Normally I drink 64-72 ounces of water per day, I’ll only add another 8 ounces to that, but it should go a long way to helping prevent dehydration running in a race a altitude.

The weather is supposed to be great tomorrow so I’ll hit the bike trail early and get in a 90 minute bike ride. 

What are you doing to get ready for your next race?
