Legs finally close to fully healed (heeled?), so I’m gonna try a few short runs during Golden Week. In the meantime, I’ve been reading about ketosis and ketogenic dieting around the interwebs and I’m intrigued. It’s gonna be hard to restrict the carbs (read booze), but it seems like a pretty easy way to trick the body into becoming better at burning fat for fuel. Precisely what’s needed for long bouts of aerobic exercise (running/hiking).
Had a nomikai last night, which meant a little sake and shochu, but I did mostly red wine and _ate_ no carbs yesterday. Nuts and a spinach salad for lunch. Couple of cups of coffee during the day and a huge block of cheese and some steak when I got home.
Setting goals for running distance and frequency hasn’t been particularly helpful. I’ve decided that for the month of February I’m going to record the runs on the ABC watch and bulk upload them at the end of the month.
My goals are to set new records for distance in a month, running activities in a month and duration in a month. To do these things I need to average approximately 30 minutes of running per day.
