North side - 8 miles, unfiltered beer pace (8:16). Did some strides and five hill blasts (weak)
Walked 3 miles in the cold rain last night to watch the Big Ten 10k. Got there for the men's bell lap. Apparently they started at 9 not 9:30. I did get to see the women's and a freshman from Michigan absolutely dominanted. 32:47? I think. She strung it out from the first lap, lapped the field going into the last 1600 meters and looked strong the whole way. She finished looking fresher than I sometimes do after an 8-mile AT tempo.
So far knocking down my drinking days from 7 to 2 has done NOTHING for my scale weight, but the Dodge Fat Test (simple pinch of the skin below the navel) tells me I have lost quite a few fat percentage points. My new theory is that my overindulgence in peanut butter has been fueling a fat demon that lives inside my hamstring and calls out split times and that is where the weight is being stored.
