gregoryw1 Posted December 24, 2014 Share Posted December 24, 2014 So last Saturday I had to do some chores around the house. I logged on to audible.com to download a book to listen to while I worked. Audible suggested I might like to download It Starts With Food - so I did. Ended up listening to it pretty much straight through. Actually after listening to the part about the two example days I played that part for my wife - then she wanted me to start it over from the beginning again so she could listen to it too. The program sounds pretty great so I'm going to give it a try.I'm 49, 6'1", 200 lbs. and I'm training for my 4th marathon. The first three have been disasters. Have never really trained right and/or eaten right. This time I got my sister-in-law to train with me (virtually, since she lives in D.C. and I live in Philly - but we are using the same, intense for me, training plan). I'm in the 4th week of the 15 week plan - this week will be a 50 mile week. I'd like to get about 20 lbs lighter by the time of the race on March 14th in D.C. Hope it doesn't bore the non-runners but I'll post my distance, time, and how I felt each day to see how the Whole30 works with marathon training. Hoping for the best!Day 1 - Tuesday:Meal1 - 2 eggs, some chickenMeal2 - more chicken, spaghetti squash left over from Sunday, a little appleMeal3 - some soup I made from the organic rotisserie chicken we got from Whole Foods last night. After I pulled the meat off the bone (for meals today) I threw all the bones in a Staub pot, added celery, parsley, an onion, fresh dill, salt, water and let it cook all night on low heat on the stove. Threw it in the fridge this AM then had that soup for Meal3. Had a banana and some strawberries and shredded coconut for desert.Then I read my Daily 30 which I subscribed to last night. Then watched the cool video link it takes you to: 40 Inspirational Speeches in 2 Minutes!Then ran 4 miles, avg pace 9:45 - which is 1:15 faster than I have been running the past three weeks - but I don't think it's due to one day on the Whole30 but rather because I've been putting in some good miles lately.Wish everyone the best & have happy holidays!
