I carbloaded well for Princess and definitely indulged in the drink and eats. However I wouldn't trade it for anything and had such an amazing time. I ate more carbs than I would have liked after for recovery but I'm feeling good now.
My goal for the week is to get back to low carb eating Tues-Thurs by aiming for no added sugars, and no grains. I will eat some carbs on Friday as a prep for my running clinic on Saturday and 10k on Sunday.
I still can't believe how much sleep I was able to get after the LAM. I slept well until the red eye (as expected) and got close to 7 hours of sleep every night in Florida. I was under the weather when I got back, and slept a lot over the weekend and I'm feeling pretty refreshed.
My goal is to get as close to 8 hours of sleep a night. My goal is get ready for bed around 930 and get in bed by 10.

I loved the Princess Half weekend-the weather was great and I had two fabulous races as I had almost no pain when running. Yay for recovering well. I'm starting to get aches and pains now so I'm just trying to stay loose. I think I may need a massage soon!
My dissertation is coming along. I found some PERFECT articles this weekend and can't wait to write them up and try to get ahead a little bit!
I'm ready to get back into my workout routine. I'm going to try to up the intensity to help me tone up and lose some extra weight and hopefully help my running.
I'm so excited for this Chi Running clinic on Saturday with Danny Dreyer! I'm hoping I'll get some tips that'll really help me with my form.
How was your week?
