Question for those of you still hanging around here while I'm on a running hiatus:
How much do you modify your calorie intake when you are on a (hopefully) short running break?
I'm trying to cut down my calorie intake until I can start running again, but I haven't done a good enough job (see visit to Lickity Split last night for frozen custard and a cupcake). My appetite has only dwindled a tiny bit, and I don't know what line to follow for eating.
If I knew this was going to be for an extended period of time, I would work harder on redoing my diet to keep from ballooning. I also know that I don't always do a good job of eating all my calories, so this won't kill me.
I guess I'll find out the time frame this afternoon when I see the sports doctor! *Crossing fingers*
Subjective Injury Status: I'm feeling a bit more towards the "I could" run, but not sure enough of the "I should" run. My legs are generally stiff from resting. I backed off from stretching as I still think I pull my hamstring more doing stretches last week. I am itching bad to try out a small jog, but would hate if that set me back more after this break (longest running break I've taken in over a year). Still some random tightness in parts of my thigh that isn't normal, so we'll see!
Happy Pre Friday Eve!
