This is because Speed Days are on Tuesdays.
Cue horror music.
Speed days: can't live with them, can't SUCCEED without them.
As much as I dislike them, I stuck with them at practice today.
We ran 6 800s. I kept all of them (except for the 4th, which was about 3 seconds over) under 4 minutes.
But the annoying thing about speed days is how hungry I stay afterward.
I ate SOOO much food afterward and I'm still hungry!!!!!
Does anyone know how to fix this?!
Also, just on a curious note, how many calories (ballpark) do you consume per day as an athlete.
People always tell me 2,000 per day is the standard, but I usually eat between 1400 and 1800 depending on the day's level of hunger. At this point, I don't want to lose weight, I'd just be happy with maintaining. But I'm just nervous that I'll overestimate my calories and put on more weight.
