Other than indulging during the Super Bowl, I kept the diet pretty clean this week. Lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and tofu. Recovery has been good and the diet was balanced.
My weight was up about a pound from last week (141.8 to 142.9 lbs), but still well within my target range of 140 ~ 145 lbs. The added weight may be due to tapering, I’m simply not burning as many calories and but my caloric intake hasn’t been reduce enough to compensate for the difference. May incorporate more long walks during the next two weeks to try and keep it more balanced.
Overall, I’m happy with where I am regarding my diet two weeks out from the marathon and don’t plan to change anything.
