Feeling a Little Horsey

Sunday I got up and felt the usual sluggishness that has marked my taper the last two weeks. It wasn't until I was 12 mins into my run that I realized that all my internal gauges were green and I was moving very, very well. I had to force myself to slow it down a bit. Halfway through the run I threw some sprints and accelerations and it felt very good, clean - almost effortless. Ran like a horse, unfortunately however I'm still eating like one. My appetite has gone crazy the last week. I wake up hungry and stay hungry. I've been winning most of the battles; reaching for fruit instead of baked goods, whole wheat breads instead of rice, lean meats instead of burgers and ribs. I don't always win though. I plowed through a small box of chocolates today. Craziness.
