Paleo Day 11

Fat (ideal 20-30%): 29% (previous days: 28-12-51-47-35-45-34-20-19-43-43)

Paleo Day 10

Posted by cavewomanrunner on October 30, 2008

Today I felt pretty good and had a great speed workout. 5 miles total, 3 miles speedwork. My first mile was 7:42, second was 7:34, and third was 8:03. It is a little hard to pace myself still on these faster, shorter runs, but at least after having a protein bar I felt strong and had energy to run well.

I have a half marathon race in 2 days. I will have been on the Paleo lifestyle for 12 days. We will see how I will do and I’m planning on eating the proper Stages this time (I promise to eat before I try to run, unlike last weekend).

My rough estimates:
Protein (ideal 20-25%): 32% (previous days: 35-13-22-29-41-25-28-30-24-26)
Carbs (ideal 50-60%): 25% (previous days: 37-75-27-24-24-30-38-50-57-31)
Fat (ideal 20-30%): 43% (previous days: 28-12-51-47-35-45-34-20-19-43)

Breakfast

  • Cod filet
  • Spinach

Lunch

  • Spring salad w/ mushrooms, tomatoes, carrots, pumpkin seeds, Pomegranate seeds
  • 1 egg
  • Celery

Snack

  • Protein bar
  • Celery w/ almond butter
