The running plan is going well. I couldn't get my mid-week longer run in last week so that mileage is divided across a couple of different days. I was worried about Saturday's long run because my legs had felt so tired the day before and I wasn't all that thrilled about running Saturday morning. But my pace was quicker than last week's and I felt pretty good with the 4:1 intervals over the 5 miles. Still looking good for signing up for the 10 mile race this summer.

Diet and Weight
I don't know what weight I should start off with for the week. As of Saturday morning last week I was at 191 but by Monday morning I think it was back at 194 something and then down to 193 something by Tuesday/Wednesday. I weighed in this morning at 191.8 so the week ended better than it began. My average daily calories were about 1900 for the week with average carbs per day at 205. I'm still working on trying to find that right macro balance but I think I have decided that the best I can do is try to get +/- 3% for each zone.  For instance, today's meal plan (Monday 4/25) so far is at 28% fat, 42% carbs, and 30% protein. So the fat and carbs aren't quite the 30% and 40% but I feel it's close enough. It feels a bit too stressful to try and get to those exact % points. If I'm eating good things than the +/- 3% points is fine.
