Last week I wrote about my intentions to be more consistent with my running and my start of P90x3.
I got off to a rocky start when early morning conference calls and work deadlines had me missing 2 days of my P90x3 workouts. I had only gone on 2 runs by Thursday of the week, so the only thing I kept up with was the P90x3 diet of 1500 calories a day.
Now, this diet assumes that I am only doing P90x for a workout, and doesn’t take into account running. I thought that 1500 calories would still be ok (I admit I just estimated and didn’t literally count every single calorie,) but I found myself starving all week and had a hard time making the adjustment. Thursday morning I set out on my run and just felt sick and had no energy, barely making it through 3.1 miles.
