So, this is the end of week 3 of the Challenge. I got a little mixed up earlier in the week on the date, but now I'm sure - it's the end of week 3. No, wait. Yes. I'm sure. End of week 3.

Since I'm not teaching math any more I'm losing my number sense and becoming a math-tard.
So, here are the LifeForm graphs for this week for my eating. Hmm. Looks like I need to take a vitamin C supplement, and I can go ahead nd blow off the Calcium, Iron, and vitamin A supplements. These graphs show what I'm getting just from my food, so I'm on a good track. Of course, this doesn't include all the Crystal Lite I'm drinking, which I think has vitamin C in it.
My weight has held steady this week, around 168 or so. My bodyfat seems to have dropped a couple points, though.
Today I did my last long run/walk/whatever my IT band will let me do. It was actually longer than this, because my Garmin got turned off by accident for about 2 miles. And, it hurt. I'm feeling pretty discouraged about the 50-mile run next weekend.
Now, all the ulta-runners I've talked to have said that, compared to the hilly, rocky trails I've been running, that Rocky Racoon will be like running on featherbeds or something. But let's face it, 50 miles is still 50 miles, and it's even longer when you're WALKING it. The miles go by slower. The other people in the race are long gone.
Sigh. I'm not really sure about this one. Of course, I'm never really sure. Most people don't know this about me, but most of the time I toe the start line pretty uncertain of finishing.
So that's it. Nothing thoughtful or witty today. I'm too busy perseverating on how much running hurt today, and how discouraged I am. It feels like I haven't run in, like, forever, or that I'll never be able to run again.
It's going to be a long 50 miles on Saturday. I'm hoping to finish by midnight.
