Two posts in a day -- I'm prolific. I've tried to use on-line calorie trackers before and found it just too painful. For instance, I tried sparkpeople but it didn't seem to have anything in its database and I didn't want to do all that typing. Well after searching for nutritional info and having thedailyplate.com come up with the answer several times, I decided to try it. It actually has the stuff I eat in there! Also, I figured I needed to eat about 2500 calories a day to lose weight (2000 + the ~1000/day I burn on average running - a 500 calorie deficit). Thedailyplate came up with the same answer. Nice. The bummer is that I only have 25 calories left today.
By the way, it's crazy humid outside right now. The forecast for Sunday has worsened to 74 with a dp of 70! Geez. I'm thinking that there's no point in beating myself up for this race. Maybe I should just do a MP run like I did at annapolis. The weather is actually supposed to be worse! I can run a 5/10k later for a better fitness indicator. The goal is the marathon and I think I'll just interrupt my training and damage my psyche if I run this thing all out. Thoughts?
