My Record Calorie-Burning Week

Last week set a record for me that I think I may be able to beat sometime this summer when the weather is nice all the time.

This past week, I burned 7,873 calories--roughly 4 days worth of calories on a 2,000 calorie diet or 3 days on a 2,500 calorie diet (likely what I'm on, if I had any idea). To give you an idea, here was what I ended up doing.

Sunday: Biked 40 miles
Monday: Biked 14 miles
Tuesday: Ran 4.3 miles
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: Ran 4.4 miles
Friday: Biked 14 miles
Saturday: Ran 16 miles

That works out to over 93 miles this week and nearly 8,000 calories. I suppose it makes sense that I'm continuing to lose weight and my pants that I bought 3 weeks ago are too big.

I did move my longer run to Saturday (but still biked 15 yesterday), so the numbers may be a bit high, but still... very happy with the results. The good news is that I don't have a voracious appetite right now. Though that could change at any minute.

What a week Greg! You're really ramping it up aren't you? It's great though when you are feeling like it's all coming together - you are doing really well. Nothing like the feeling of pants getting looser (as long as you're wearing a belt). Thanks for all your incredibly kind words recently - sounds like you've got the bit between your teeth yourself?

Hey, that week looks a lot like one a multisport athlete might have! I remember you mentioning getting into swimming so perhaps triathlons are on the horizon?

Either way, nice job. I thought you looked pretty fit back in Sept but now you must be SUPER fit!!
