Injury-wise, the tightness/strain on my left quad has gotten better and I'll probably try to run a few times this week to see how it feels. The other major injury from last year, plantar fasciitis, has been kept at bay but there are still mornings when I wake up and the first few steps are a bit painful. The calf strain I had a couple of weeks ago seems to have healed itself.
From a body composition perspective, I am down another pound from last week, now at 169.4 lbs. Body Fat % is also down from 8.3% to 8.1%. I wish I took measurements of my body with measuring tape because I've def seen improvement with things like my pants fitting a bit looser around the waist. Dropping the "garbage" weight was one huge point of focus for me the past few months to shave time off my min/mile running pace (rule of thumb is 2 secs per pound) and also to optimize my Watts/Kilogram power number on the bike. It is amazing to look back at the progression over the past two months. One thing I'll mention is that I dropped all this weight despite being on creatine supplementation, not counting calories/portions, and making sure I take in a large amounts of high glycemic carbs almost daily. I know these three things seem very counter-intuitive with conventional knowledge about weight loss so I'll explain in a later post.
