Two weeks between Iowa & Indy marathons, re-focused on nutrition.  I’m marathoning more often but no longer training three disciplines concurrently [Ironman], so no good reason why I can’t pick up my pace.

Started a food journal to better understand intake & track good fuel days.  Adding turkey to salad & eating lamb in race weeks for protein pick-up.  Upping my spinach & kale usage – for increased iron.  Rotisserie chicken makes me feel ick.  Bread & white rice are not food friends.  I feel mentally down the following day, which leads to inconsistent training.

When the body feels blah, best to take a day offWhen the mind feels blah (poor nutrition), it’s a wasted training day (also spills over into work – less productive).

Learning to listen to my body.  Been running consistently without injury since October 2013 – wanna keep that streak alive thru 2016 (50 state marathon goal).
