I am hungry again. It’s 8:30pm and I’m about to dive into my dessert veggie plate and cup of Tumeric-Ginger tea. I especially love the cucumbers sprinkled with garlic powder and sea salt. Trust me, I’ve already eaten enough of the other stuff today. I’ve been simply ravenous the past few days. I am exhausted after this past week of training and know with where I am that I simply need to eat more food. More training = more hunger= more food. It’s about this point in training where I am always constantly hungry. I want to be careful, however, not to use this as an excuse to eat too much or eat the wrong things. I do not train to eat whatever I want. It doesn’t work like this for me. I am at my best when I eat (mostly) healthy and indulge on occasion. I’m happier, more consistent and overall just feel better when I eat right. I’d like to see myself one size smaller by race day, although for the most part my fitness and performance is a result of consistent training, not how heavy or light I am. Training should be the confidence builder not what the scale says. So long as I am eating well. This week I am constantly hungry.
Today’s group ride followed by a short run.
