So, I have been trying to figure out why I have been so fatigued lately. I feel like I haven't been able to get enough sleep and that my power is down.
First thing I thought, "Is Max trying to break me down?" Then I realized that was the whole point, to make the races seem like no big deal. Then I thought, " Am I getting enough sleep?" Answer is, same as usual. So it must be my diet.
Nancy and I switched over to Paleo about 3 weeks or so ago. I have lost about 6-7 pounds since and just thought it was due to the new way of eating. Then when I sat down and actually figured it out I realized that the non Paleo foods I took out of my diet, I never replaced with Paleo foods. The carb blocks I took out, I never replaced (anywhere from 6-9 blocks per day). Also, the fat I used to eat with breakfast I haven't replaced. I need to figure a way to put those blocks back in a Paleo friendly manner.
Today's workout consisted of biking 5 miles 5 times, with 5 minutes of rest in between sets. Was planning to do this workout outside, but when I was ready to leave it looked like it was about to pour so I went over to the gym for the stationary bike. First set completed in 14:45 rested only 2 minutes, 2nd set was 14:40, rested 3 minutes, 3rd set was 15 minutes even, then as I was about to start my 4th set someone asked me a question, so the rest ended up being 6 minutes, finished in 14:59, rested 1:30 and the last set was 17:54.
