Marathon Training Diet (Week 8 of 13)

Continuing to keep a balanced diet in terms of moderate proteins, high carbohydrates and low fat intake.  I was a little heavy on the sweets and snacks between meals this week and combined with some reduced activity (less walking, more driving, no leisurely bike rides) due to cold or wet weather, ended up gaining over a pound.  So I’ll need to get keep the snacking in check this upcoming week to compensate for the reduced activity.

The weight is still well within my target 140 – 145 lb range.  Recovery between workouts has very good, so don’t really see the need to change much in my diet.  My body fat % has remained about the same for the past few weeks.

Here is my weight for the past 8 weeks.  Each weight measurement is taken first thing on Saturday morning.

Start – 144.4 lbs (65.5 kg)

Week 1  – 141.5 lbs (64.2 kg) – NOTE:  Think I was dehydrated during this weigh-in.
