Fast Experiment: Day 1

Weight: 145 lb. * Body Fat: 17.5% (barely) * Ran: 6 km * Cycled: 39 km

So, here it is, the first day. When you start a journey for a first time, it often looks so big, so daunting. And the way you handle it, of course, is just to move forward, step after step.

I had similar thoughts this morning, when I ran a 6 km loop, my record for this season (and for many, many years). When I started, I couldn’t believe I would be able to make it. So I just kept going, and eventually get used to the pace, and finished with relative ease.

Since the morning, things went a little bit downhill though. Today was worse than my typical one-day fast. I felt some hunger couple of times — not much, but more than I expected — but worse than that was a constant feeling of low energy. I am not sure how to accurately describe in words. Dispirited and light-headed, maybe?

Well, let’s just keep going. Let’s see what tomorrow brings us. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to do any cycling tomorrow — have to drive to work — but probably I can run in the morning, if I have enough time.
