For the past few months, I've watched my diet pretty well and I've slowly lost about15 pounds since the first of the year. I've done it without being hungry a lot. For some reason though, as I've started to taper, I've been starving all the time. Right now, my lunch is being delayed by a meeting that hasn't started yet. All I can think about is food at the moment.
My wife just reminded me by e-mail that I shouldn't undo months of good work by eating too much during my taper. I felt like saying "Thanks mom" to that advice. But, she's right.
Eight miles after work tonight, with 2 tempo miles. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms, but hopefully they'll miss me. Tonight, I start packing my clothes for the trip. My ultra gear is all packed already.
