|This is our new place, hopefully Irene leaves it alone|
We got in a 1/2 mile swim yesterday, where with some horrible sighting, I managed 26 minutes. Im still not fast, but even on bad sighting days I can still do a 52 minute mile in cool water without a wetsuit. Tonight, I had planned a longer workout, but the team has a social tonight, and it will be our last chance for a while to see many of them so we're going to go to that. They picked a good place that gives us a chance to see another part of Boston one last time.
Finally, with taper coming way too quickly (it starts Monday!), I really want to make sure I'm not going to get out of control on my eatting. I made the decision to cut out all fried foods on Sunday after eating a McDonalds breakfast sandwich and really just feeling like crap all day after. I'm now almost 4 days grease free, and further, I have eaten fruits and/or vegetables with every meal (save one) since. My goal is to continue this through my taper period, and then following the post race feast, go right back to it.
I still don't have a scale to check my weight progress with, but I've gotten to the point where I'm wearing my belt in the smallest hole, one I had to add myself a few weeks ago.
