Oooo I had a whole bunch of runs and InstaPot experiences to write about but all that running, Instapotting plus mothering got all of my time. I was set to do my 3rd MAF test in the last 2 weeks but that is really something you should be feeling really good before you do it. You want to go in feeling fantastic but one week I wasn't physically feeling fantastic (non-running related) and this week the election really had me stressed out so I wait.
Last night the Pip Running Badass Membership had our workout at the track. While Coach Dave handled the circuit training workout I ran laps. Earlier in the day I returned to seeing Dr. Stephen for maintenance on my left foot. Ankle mobility/non-glutes firing...nothing new here. I did ask him for one exercise (so that I would do it!) and was pleasantly surprised and somehow vindicated that he gave me an exercise that the awesome Travis and Meghan from DOS Performance had already given me. I probably should have been feeling sheepish and embarrassed. I'll let you know how that progresses. One day my butt will work but until then I wanted to let you know that I went into last night's laps feeling pretty good. My times have improved but I really need to work on keeping it level. I'm still stopping to walk to let my HR come down but I am running must faster in between those walk breaks. It definitely felt good to run but I need to work on keeping that run pace slower to be able run longer in between the breaks. I will have to look at my data but it did seem that my HR would not spike nearly as high as in the past so that's something.
As you may remember I noted that I felt I was not getting enough fat in my LCHF diet. I am definitely eating more but I am trying for 70%. I am really now looking into Fat Bombs. Mike and I tried a few previously but they were not good. Not good at all. I found a recipe yesterday, made them and tried it out last night. I felt it was pretty good and may add a little sea salt on top next time. Looking into savory bombs too. If I find a good one I'll post that too.
Here's what I made:
