I am a sugar addict.

Yup! 

I REALLY wish I did not like sugar and sweets, but that is my kryptonite.

I wrote about the benefits of protein and protein powder earlier in the year.  You can read about it here and here.  But I have since changed my views on the subject.

This week we will be switching up the routine!  Monday will most definitely NOT be leg day!  I ran a full marathon on Saturday and my legs are HAMMERED!  Specifically my calves.  They were not happy by the end of the race and they both fully spasmed after I finished....

This is race week for me, so I'll be keeping the workouts short and movement-based.  I've been training to run Big Cottonwood Marathon and am hoping to qualify to run the Boston Marathon in April (crossing all my fingers and toes).

Last week we were all pretty sore.  I...
