Well so far so good on the pre cleansing. My body is feeling well and no hunger pains as of yet. The real test will come the next 2 days when I'm in real cleanse mode.  I'm not looking to lose weight while doing the cleanse I simply want to tone up and build some lean muscle mass.  My concern is still being able to train while cleansing. I have some running to do however the plan calls for light exercise on cleanse days. I may need to adjust my schedule a bit to to get it all in. I know I can work it out.

Monday: The last 2 days days of training have been good. Labor day I got up early Monday morning and went out for a 5 mile tempo run. A tempo run is where you bring yourself up to your threshold pace for atleast 15-20 minutes or longer. The point is to get comfortable running at a somewhat uncomfortable pace and the benefit should be increased speed and stamina. For me, my threshold is normally around 7:40 per mile. I didn't run that fast on Monday however I know that my threshold pace will be getting back to where it should be as I continue through my training. Per my heart rate I know I got in a great workout on this day.  1 mile warm up and then about 17 minutes at an 8:03 pace, followed by a 1 mile cool down. I added an extra cool down mile for a total of 6 miles for the day.  Recovery drink was an IsaLean Pro Chocolate Shake. Yea!! :)

Tuesday: Today I did an easy recovery spin in the gym. I love cross training on recovery days because it takes a lot of the pounding off of my legs that running gives them.  10 miles at a 4:38 pace. Recovery drink was an IsaLean Pro Chocolate Shake.

In conclusion I'm feeling very good about that rest of this week with the cleanse as well as official marathon training that starts next week. I'm going to be using the plan I used for my last marathon from Advanced Marathoning by Pete Pfitzinger and Scott Douglass. This book and the training plans had me super prepared for the Twin Cities marathon last year so I'm excited to hit it up again!!

 Any one of you ever used the marathon training plans out of this book?? How did it go??

This is TY signing off. As always allow the Universe to work in your favor and be blessed... :)
