It is not he critic who counts nor the man who points out how the strong man tumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better, the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood. Who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat!
~ Theodore RooseveltI am on a quest and need your help. I have recently diagnosed myself with 70.3 eating disease. What is that? Well, I eat more than I should. I'm hungry all the time, which is not a bad thing because of all the exercise, but it's the "bad" food choices and the "overeating" I am making that I need help with. I am in training for the Ironman Kansas 70.3 so I do need to make sure I fuel the sport not go on a "diet". IM KS is 5 weeks away. I would like to drop 10 lbs by then, but am not sure I can do that and have the strength to train and compete. So I'm aiming for 5 lbs. My plan is to use my blog to track my progress and hopefully all you healthy runners and bikers and triathletes can support me along the way. I have joined Weight Watchers online to count points - eating and exercise. I'll update again later on how the day goes.
Today's workout: 1500 yd swim, 3 mile run, 30 mile bike ride. RUN ON!
