Fast day was planned. I ate supper after reading some of It Starts With Food and their admonishments about proper nutrition and the dangers of improper recovery. That got me thinking about the very high need for solid recovery when I'm about to challenge my body to two runs in 24 hours, minor to some but pretty new for me. And especially knowing I wouldn't be as vegetable- (thus, nutrient-) heavy at breakfast like I would at supper, I figured I'd better get some solid nutrition in now.

So I'm experimenting. I think. I'm going to try fasting tomorrow until supper. And maybe Sunday, too. Remember when I joked about the Warrior Diet earlier this week? Might just be what I do over the weekend for real. I think. Will depend on how I feel.

Sleep: 8 hours in bed. In a bit late due to moto ride, and couldn't sleep in past 530a. Felt pretty well rested though.

Body: Decent. Little aches in morning, abs a bit sore. Workouts were solid. Vague aches/pains in eve.

Brain: Decent. Day off was pretty busy but all was enjoyable.

Habit: Phrases used today, following "I love my body just as it is right now": -I quite love my arms. -I almost got all 8 sets! -My handstands have hugely improved. -I am strong. -That run felt great! -I like my hips.

Priorities: 4 more unsubscribes!
